He Is Risen Indeed


I love Easter. It is the most meaningful holiday to me, as it symbolizes Christ rising from the dead, proving he is the Son of God.

This was our first holiday all by our selves, and I will admit I was pretty lonely for our familes. Zach's parents and grandmother were with his sister and her family, and my parents had all of our extended family over for dinner.



I had big plans for our first Easter as a married couple; at Target last week I tricked Zach into picking out his favorite Easter candy (ps. after three years, why do I still not know what it is?!) and also letting me buy Easter eggs. Z always goes to bed before me, so I was going to do a little egg hunt Saturday night for him to wake up to Easter morning. Welp, I ended up falling asleep on the couch with him so that did not happen! I'm actually dissapointed about it :(

Sunday morning, we drove to San Diego to pick up my sister who wanted to come to church with us. Church was not your typical Easter service. We did sing a lot of worship songs about Christ rising from the dead, but the sermon had nothing to do with Easter (??) I was a little surprised! At the end, they did cardboard testimonies, which I love! It's so meaningful to see how Christ has totally healed people!

After church we hung out at our little house, I worked on finishing up my garden outside, and later we had a bonfire outside. It was just perfect. We also got to skype with Zach's family and finally meet baby Will! We FaceTimed with my family, and Cara and I got to say hi to everyone there :) We even dressed up in matching Easter outfits...
hahaha cute I know!

And lastly, we hung a hummingbird feeder outside and it's pretty much my favorite thing in the world. It's amazing how much joy the little things can bring!

See him!? so cool!

glad you had a good weekend despite not being with your family. I keep meaning to ask you about your juice diet you did awhile ago. Did you follow something specific??

Also, I absolutely love our hummingbird feeder. They are such interesting little birds.

I'm sorry that you guys didn't get to spend Easter with your families...but I'm sure seeing your sister helped a little :)
