WOOHOO!!!!! Spring is right around the corner, friends and I couldn’t be more excited. With spring comes beautiful flowers, bright colors, cookouts, porch drinks, boat rides and the list goes on and on and on. After a cold and what can sometimes be a depressing winter season, spring breathes fresh life into our souls and the nature around us. It really is a beautiful thing.
It’s kind of fitting that spring brings life because Easter is right around the corner. Recently I asked Jessica and my husband an intriguing question. It was, “knowing what you know now, if you could be on a fly on the wall during Jesus’ birth or his resurrection, which would you choose?”
It is a question that had been on my mind a lot during the Christmas season. In case you were wondering they both said his resurrection! And I think I might have to agree. What an incredible moment to witness.
One reason I love Easter is because it really is a celebration of what the holiday is meant to be. Christmas can sometimes get blurred with all the shopping and gifts and parties, but not so much with Easter. BUT, one staple in my family growing up was the Easter Bunny.
Easter Sunday meant church and an egg hunt with my cousins, but before I put on my brand new “Easter dress” that was chosen specifically for the occasion, I ran to the den in my pj’s to see what the bunny had brought. Our baskets were never over the top because my “bunny” chose to keep the focus on Jesus. Usually just some candy and maybe some spring flip flops or something related to warmer weather. I attribute my love affair with the Cadbury Mini Eggs to my mom. I can’t get enough of those things and the minute I see them on the shelf at the store I grab as many bags as socially acceptable in the checkout line…
I don’t have kiddos of my own yet, but if you do PARISH has some great Easter basket filler options. Tell your Bunny to head this way and we will set you up.
One of my favorite new kiddie things here are these adorable books by BabyLit. If you are a reader and especially love the classics then these books are perfect for your learning toddler. My heart swooned when I read “Edgar Goes to Bed”! Their purpose is to introduce tots to colors and numbers (and a lot more) while also introducing them to famous characters in literature such as Romeo & Juliet, Mr. Darcy & Elizabeth Bennet, and Tom Sawyer etc. etc. They are great for boys and girls!
With counting primers, color primers, animal primers and many more, your toddler will be well on his or her way to being the smartest kid on the block after reading these fun books! I wish my niece wasn’t five or I would get one for her! Luckily, my nephew is getting close to a good age for the Huckleberry Finn one! Too much fun!
Those baby booties are precious. They are hand knitted and we have some for boys and girls! Be still my heart! Some of you may have grown up children and you just might be thinking “Oh, that’s cute, but mine are too old for it!” I have a lot of friends whose parents still give them some Easter happies and below you will find some great options for those people, too!
I hope you will come in and visit us and pick up a thing or two for your loved one’s Easter basket! We are always happy to ship items and can even wrap if you need us to. Happy almost-spring! Until next time!
