Wishful Wednensday . . . Easter

'I wish' .... I could re-live one Easter memory from my childhood, and it would be . . . Any Easter when I was little.

I know its a cop-out to not pick just one but I love Easter! It is my second favorite holiday. I have so many wonderful Easter memories. Every Easter my sister and I would get a new dress, a tradition I still keep up. I love when I see little girls in what is clearly a special Easter dress. You know the one that has extra ruffles.

Growing up we also knew Easter was special because we would get new white patin leather mary janes. And my Momma, being the good southern woman that she is, would not let us wear our new white shoes until Easter morning.

But what I most remember and cherish from Easters past is that I was blessed to grow up in a Christian home and have parents who took me to Church not only on Easter but every other Sunday as well. I learned at a young age the true meaning of Easter! I learned that the Easter Bunny is fun and coloring eggs are great but that what we truly celebrate is the amazing resurrection of Christ!
This is the actual empty tomb!

I hope you all remember what Easter is all about this year. And that the Bunny visits you too!

I love to get these in my basket! Yum!!


  1. It is so great that even as a child you were able to see past the fun of the eggs and candy to see the real meaning of Easter!

  2. Yum! I love the candy. Easter truly has the best candy.

  3. Not a cop-out at all! It's the memories and traditions like this that make things so fun!

  4. YAY! I love this post! I think we have very similar Easter memories and they way we were brought up! I love the Candy too...

    Thanks for sharing! Happy Easter Week

  5. I love the Easter services surround the actual day, starting with Ash Wednesday, it's such a wonderful time to remind yourself why we celebrate Easter.

  6. Awe, I love little girl easter dresses. They are SO adorable.!!! I love the Easter service too. Everyone is just so happy. Such a good day.!

  7. I think it's awesome that you're parents taught you about the resurrection at a young age!
