How Do You Like Them Eggs?
I do have to share a lovely little tradition that I started a handful of years back, and which I am sure some of you have possibly heard of before. If you hide Easter eggs (the plastic kind as most people do these days) for your friends and family, why not include a couple of eggs with some money in them? It doesn't have to be much...some change, a dollar bill, a five, or ten...but just a little something makes the search oh so fun!
I learned of this tradition from a boy I dated. When we went to celebrate Easter with his family, he informed me that EVERYONE participated in the hunt (eggs were hidden higher and in harder spots for adults), and that there were eggs with money in them...and ONE egg with a $100 bill inside. You should have seen the adults searching for the eggs, me included...it was a total hoot! We were all looking for as many as we could find in hopes that we found THE ONE. You bet your buttons, I grabbed one just before his brother got to it...lucky for me, as it had a $20 bill inside. Oh, I will never forget that Easter and the fun we had! However, I think I had beginner's luck, as I ended up coming home with $35.00 in my pocket ;-) Either that or I just have really good egg hunting skills. A skill that I am sure everyone wishes they had...hehe!
So my darlings, I wish you a splendid Easter! Maybe you will even start a new tradition. And if there are no little ones involved in your celebration, have an Easter egg hunt for your friends. Yes, I believe that adults should have Easter egg hunts too! Whatever it is you do - be safe, enjoy, and I hope you find lots of eggs ;-) As always, I'll see you back here on Sunday for some sweetness.
