This picture is exactly what my Easter weekend felt like. Although I don't personally celebrate holidays because of what they are based around (not my story, not my truth), I do celebrate what many holidays inspire - food, family, love and gratitude. And since most people I know do celebrate each holiday, I like to insert myself into their experience so that I can share feasts and good vibes with those I love. Here's one example:
Every year I publicly and privately invite myself to other people's holiday feasts. I've never cooked a feast in my life so this food-loving hottie does what needs to be done. And I always bring Too Good Triangles to each gathering which no one seems to mind. Just look at what my friend, Bobbi (the hottie I'm hugging above), created with TGT! Chocolate pudding, whip cream and toffee bits with a slice of heaven. Yummers!
Even beyond holidays and beyond any glorious feast, I'm grateful for the wonderful humans in my life and the way they include me in their families. Or maybe it's the way they let me invite myself in.
I have many sacred heart families surrounding me each year. Both in real life and online. It means so much. I love all of my adopted-by-heart mothers, sisters, whippersnappers and furry friends, and I will never ever tire of delicious shared meals and drinks, and hugs and dancing and all the laughter and sacred moments in between.
That's the sweetness of life in a nutshell. My life is pretty sweet.
I addition to Bobbi's Easter pow wow, I also spent an Easter meal with my love, Andrea, who decorated her table in my honour. An owl centerpiece just for me to take home. So sweet.
For dessert I brought Too Good Triangles (of course!) and Andrea's mother, Gert, got to try them for the first time and said, "They're better than sex!" and she ain't lyin'! I asked her if I could quote her publicly and she said yes. Awesome!
For dessert I had cheesecake because ummmm cheesecake! And I even had a slice for breakfast the next morning thanks to Andrea's son, Mark, sneaking a slice in along with the leftovers his mom packed for me. I felt so loved.
If you celebrate Easter, and even if you don't, I hope you had a wonderful time this weekend with the things and people who mean the most to you.
