Happy Easter!

As you may remember, Easter is my favorite holiday. My family has so many traditions that I look forward to every year.

Easter 2011
Along with the happy thoughts of Easter comes some sad ones. Easter always reminds me of my Dzia-Dzia (grandpa in Polish) who passed away. We used to make a huge fruit salad together until he passed away. I carried this tradition on and make it myself. It is something that I would never stop doing and means a lot to me.
My fruit salad!!
This dietitian LOVES fruit!
My brother and Busia (grandma in Polish) make a lemon coffee cake. My Busia and sister make potato salad. Dad makes ham. Mom makes a lamb out of butter. Then, we take the food to be blessed at church. We have followed these traditions for many years now and I love them!

Easter also means the start of decent weather (usually) which is always a happy time for me.

I wish all of you a wonderful Easter with your families!
