The Perfect Easter Brunch: It’s Okay to be Fancy part 2.

First of all, I want to say thank you to all of you who read and responded to my story. It’s not easy sharing “reality” on this virtual space—but I am so thankful I did. While taking some time away from blogging… I enjoyed spending an Easter weekend with friends. Easter is one of my favorite holidays for so many reasons, most of all because it celebrates Jesus’ total victory over our total depravity. And if that’s not something worth celebrating… I honestly don’t know what is!

So we’ve started this unofficial tradition… Easter Brunch on the porch. It’s the one day out of the year that I like to get all fancy…

Easter Brunch Menu

THE MENU:

TO DRINK:

  • old fashioneds (thanks to Rob and Em!)
  • J. Lohr wine and more (thanks to Sam!)
  • Bulleit Bourbon (thanks to K. Falk!)

We pulled out the china, the silver, and my new chalkboard (that’s going to go in our new kitchen)… basically… we pulled out all the stops.

So what if it was absolutely freezing? So what if we pulled out a space heater to keep on the porch?

It was great. Check out more pictures below the fold …
