As our pastor said this past weekend, "Hope, forgiveness, significance and fulfillment … these Life-giving Truths all hinge on whether He actually rose from the dead or not."  How amazing is it to know that He is risen, He is risen indeed?!

Just in time, our little tree started blooming this weekend!

This past Easter weekend marked the first major holiday in our dating/marriage history that Ryan and I spent together just the two of us.  And it was wonderful.  I wouldn't give up being close to our family for the world, but there was something special about being able to just relax and not drive anywhere on a holiday.

We had a delicious dinner of smoked salmon, coconut kale and potato salad.

And of course we finished it off with my all-time favorite seasonal candy...

Hope you had a wonderful Easter, whether with friends, family or a spouse.
