i'm the easter bunny that ate candy out of my little sister's easter basket.

dress: f21 / shoes: aldo / earrings: the loft / bag: le mode accessories
nails: OPI william tell me about + sally  hansen sonic boom

when we were growing up, it was a tradition to go shopping for brand new easter dresses for church. my sisters and i totally rocked the matching dresses with the huge bows and the dressy hats. i hope to do the same with my future daughters one day (maybe stick a few poppy garland headbands on them while i'm at it - hehe). this wasn't a new dress (remember it from mine and ryan's engagement shoot?) but like i said, it was still fun to dress up! 


the easter bunny (ahem, moi) surprised Ashley with a basket full of goodies - so we got snacked through most of it throughout the day. in the morning, my family enjoyed a wonderful Easter worship service at our church - such a powerful message and so good to see so many family friends, some from out of town. it was also fun to catch up with my childhood bestie. i love Easter Sundays - it's definitely one of my favorite times of the year, especially when i'm home with family.

how was your easter, friend?
did you share any fun traditions with family or friends?

much love.
[happy weekend, friend.]

 p.s. did you all see the fun Connection post that Susannahbean interviewed me and Sandy (of Sandyalamode) for? check it out HERE.

  10. Easter was amazing. God rose from the grave and Jesus Christ has allowed us to be free of the bondage of sin!! So blessed.

    Your dress is amazing. Your so beautiful and I pray that you and your future husband are strengthened in this time of waiting to become one.
