I think Easter is funny. We never really celebrated at home. Just a little background info for you, my Mom is an Atheist and my parents divorced when I was pretty young, so even though my Dad is a "Christian," (loosely,) Easter was just a reason for my Mom to buy me some new chapter books and my Dad to do what he did best the first few years after the divorce, disappoint me. Don't get me wrong, my Dad and I are pretty close now, and my Mom and I don't even talk anymore. Sad, I know, but I'm pretty whatever at this point about parents. Anyways, holidays were always a coin toss when I was growing up. Sometimes my Dad would surprise me with Tulips and a card, and my mom would have the day off and hide presents all over the house for me to find and then we would go on a hike or something. Those are great memories. But now, as an adult, we kind of just do the same thing we would do any other day.
The best part about today is that Doug woke me up with a sweet "Happy Easter" and we played with the puppies forever. I love having Sundays off. The dogs wait for us to wake up and then go crazy with happiness. We went and got coffee and a bagel, picked up his friend Jacob and drove to the swap meet. It was cloudy, but not that cold and we had fun just wandering through the isles and finding little treasures. I bought a whole flat of strawberry and tomato plants. I am really excited about that. Except Monster keeps picking the strawberries off the plants and trying to eat them.
So, also, I actually wore cute clothes today. I mean, something other than jeans and shirt and a sweater or hoodie. Go me. Also, I almost forgot, it;s our anniversary. I can't believe it's really been 3 years!! I'm glad we don't make a big deal out of it, and just do what we do best. Fun stuff. Except the cake part, that was a first and it was pretty fun. Doug's out skateboarding right now. Holidays are the best time to skate street, so holiday afternoons, he does that. And I apparently take photos of myself!
