I often wonder how slow time would move without seasons- without those little celebrations peppered throughout the year to look forward to and plan. Granted, as a grown adult with not kids of my own, yet, I celebrate holidays a little different than I once used to as a little girl. Though, much like the eb and flow of seasons, everyone around me is now beginning their own little families in a cycle that is as old as time. Cousins, friends form high school, and current best friends are settling down and hatching their own little chicks. I suspect it will still be several years before I begin my own flock, but, for now, I indulge in celebrating the beginning of new life with the ones I love.
As we approach Easter, no matter your religious background or personal beliefs- I feel EVERY holiday is a chance to take stock of what truly matters. A moment marked on the calendar to remember all which we are so very thankful for; my baby cousin all grown up and now with a baby of her own, my grandfather growing stronger every day in his journey without my grandma, and all of the wonderful memories of that special woman, still so very much alive in my memories today.
What Daughter Says: Make some new memories over food, and craft these chick cupcakes with your family and friends.
