easter envy

Easter is not a big holiday in my family. We hardly notice it.

It was different when I was a kid. My family were practicing Roman Catholics, so it was a big holiday for us back then.

Our usual Easter routine was Mass on Sunday morning, dinner with the whole family at my aunt's house Sunday afternoon, and an egg hunt for the kids after dinner.

In preparation for Easter, Mom would get new Easter outfits for herself and my sister. My Dad and I wore whatever suit was the most recent addition to our wardrobes.

I was jealous of my sister. She usually got a new dress, new shoes, and a new hat for Easter. My female cousins got dolled up for Easter, too, meanwhile I was stuck in a boring suit.

Saturday, I will make up for my Easter envy and get dressed to kill for my support group's annual banquet. I can't wait!


  1. Hope you are having a lovely weekend. Just wanted to stop by and see how things were going in your life! :)

  2. I would have LOVED to be able to wear a really pretty dress to church on Easter! Well, it didn't happen.

    But I live fulltime as a woman NOW!

    ciao ciao


  3. I had a very quiet weekend and I did not go to church, nor did I wear a dress!
