Hosting a Holiday Movie Night

Doesn’t it seem like each year the holiday season passes by in a flash?!?

Party with My Peeps Easter Brunch

One of my favorite memories as a child was from Easter: My mom and neighbor decided to organize and host a morning full of Easter activities. It included an egg hunt, pictures with the Easter Bunny, and was topped off with a full on parade. All the neighborhood kids marched down the streets around our house while donning their Easter best (complete with homemade bonnets and batons) alongside a wagon blasting music. Despite this being over 20 years ago now, it still brings a smile to my face thinking about all the fun we had.
