Easter Weekend

| Leave a comment

We had a wonderful Easter weekend filled with family, fun times and of course, good food.

On our way to my parents, we stopped by this coffee shop in the quaint little town of Black Mountain (where Randy and I were married ๐Ÿ™‚ ). I ordered the nutella mocha and it has forever changed my view on coffee drinks! It was fantastic! The barista took a large spoonful of nutella and mixed it with expresso. As she was mixing she asked me how much I like nutella, I replied that I loved it. She then proceeded to give me the espresso drenched nutella spoon. Oh my goodness! It was heaven!

I picked these pretty flowers up for my mom. I believe I am going to plant some blue thistle in my backyard. I love that intense blue color!

The next day, all the ladies got a mani & pedi. I haven’t had one since before Italy. It definitely was a treat!

Later that day we had a family get together with all of my family at my grandparents. I just love how silly and funny my brother is.

Looking at all these photos, I am remind how blessed I am. I have a beautiful, talented, funny family without whom I would be lost. I have the greatest husband a girl could ask for and to top it all off, I have amazing shoes! ๐Ÿ˜‰ โ€œGive a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.โ€

But seriously, I feel truly blessed and I know exactly where all these blessings come from. So all my thanks goes to you, Lord! ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope your Easter was filled with joy and relaxation surrounded by all your loved ones.
