Isn’t it nice that Passover and Easter are coinciding again?  We are away from our ‘alley egg hunt’ this year, so I’ll miss creating bunny prints – but back soon with photos from this amazing season of renewal.  Enjoy and Peace, Paz, Pax, Happy Passover, Buona Pasqua to all…

We had a relaxing weekend with friends in Connecticut again, and had a chance to visit a chicken farm and collect eggs! I was surprised by how patient the chickens were around small kids, and not a single egg broken!

I feel like my quest for Beautiful Things has been hampered lately by chasing kids, their schedules, an upcoming ballet recital, a huge homework packet … you know the mamma drill. But I did manage to find some things that evoke spring before frolicking with the kids (both of them, now that Ezra has some time off from school finally).

Enjoy!

— Favorite spring picture books.

— Some beautiful spring colors and eggs (for Passover or Easter or just as a symbol of renewal.)

— More lovely lively colors to take my head out of winter.

Colorful coats for the end of the season, and don’t forget the red lipstick again!

— It’s fascinating to see children around the world with their favorite things.

— And just cute kids in general, on film, saying some great stuff (love the one about Valentine’s Day!)

A great lunch option, I’m about to Google whether or not bulgur wheat is kosher for Passover.

— What do to with your cherry tomatoes when they go past their prime.

— Pretty macaroons!

— Do you remember when Banana Republic Merchandise looked like this?

— A kosher-for-Passover treat and favorite at our house.

I think because I use to celebrate Easter in the past, I get a little excited when both Passover and Easter happen or start on the same weekend – and I’m not even certain why. Maybe because in my mind there’s the opportunity to mix them both somehow – or there’s the chance to feel a kindred spirit with others who (despite our varying religions) are also braving holiday traffic, traveling, baking good things to eat and seeing family. Last year Passover and Easter were a week apart so we had a chance to catch some egg hunts — something so very Pagan and spring-themed that we let the kids enjoy it without worrying about blurring any religious lines. This year we might miss the egg hunts while starting Passover, but the same sweet feeling of renewal and spring are in both holidays.
Here are some scenes from last year – and we hope you enjoy your Good Friday, Passover, Easter, start of spring break… :
