the miscellany & the lovely.

It's been a miscellaneous & beautiful week filled to the brim with sunlight, jelly donuts, camera clicks, Cadbury chocolate eggs, new chicks, fresh flowers and bike rides down quiet country back roads.  Easter weekend was all azure skies and balmy breezes, and my camera was out almost every second.

On Saturday I helped photograph the annual Megga Easter egg Hunt at our local county fairgrounds. The midday sun was bright and un-photogenic, but the kids were beyond adorable (dang, there were over 1,000 to choose from). It was my first shot at event photography, and I have to say I'm pretty smitten. I wandered around at my leisure into the petting zoo, the face painting and the egg fields taking pictures to my heart's content.  This is the type of thing I could get used to.

On Easter Sunday we had some family over for a full spread, and basked in the warm sunlight. Food + sun are my "one weaknesses," as Miss Lane of Lark Rise to Candleford would say (just FYI: favorite.show.evah.). We talked and laughed and played around in the glowing embers of dusk, just like we used to when we were little. That's the funny thing about family; you can always, always be yourself with them. Even if you change.

Maybe that's why the miscellany and even the mundane are always the loveliest.

What did your Easter look like?

ps- never fear, the march photo challenge finalists will be announced soon-ish!

    My Easter was lovely. We went to church at our home fellowship, had communion, came home and had a family dinner with my sister and her family and my grandparents. We missed my brother who lives on the other side of the country. We had an egg hunt for the little kids, rib roast, four desserts (Yea, our family knows how to do it right. Our one weakness. ;)

    Thank you for your sweet words of congratulations, Lucia! Actually, I am currently hosting a giveaway here — http://365daysoftitanic.blogspot.com/2012/03/march-april-giveaway_14.html — to win a copy of Violets Are Blue.
