Easter Egg Hunt

We planned a little Easter egg hunt for Gwen before church on Sunday. We hid the eggs in plain sight and she loved it, just as I suspected. When she'd find a new egg, she would quickly open it to see what treat/toy/sticker was inside. Her first egg had a Cadbury chocolate egg inside, which I gladly helped her eat. It was just the cutest thing to watch her walking around our little "front yard" with her basket. I debated on whether to take a video or just photos. I'm glad I took these photos, but a little sad that I didn't take a video! I feel like sometimes you can catch emotions much better with a video, and it would have been neat to capture her calling the eggs "eggies", bending down to pick up the eggs, opening them immediately after finding each one, and all that cute stuff. Alas, I'll just have to keep those memories to myself, locked up in my brain.

He is Risen

This is my favorite Bible video. Imagine how amazing it would be to be Mary in that moment. She's speechless! I mean, who knew how she actually reacted all those years ago, but I'm betting that she was probably speechless.
Christ's resurrection sure is something to celebrate. We had fun celebrating Easter with Gwen this year. She had her first egg hunt! It was the cutest. I'll post the photos soon. How did you celebrate Easter? I'd really love to know.

Easter is My Favorite

It wasn't until a couple of years ago that I decided Easter is my favorite holiday. In the past, my favorite holiday may have been Christmas. While I still love Christmas and the story of Jesus's birth a whole lot, Easter just seems to have a different spirit. It's also wonderful that Easter is in the spring- a time for renewal. I often feel at peace on Easter. The story of Jesus coming back to life three days after His death is miraculous, a true miracle, and it always gives my testimony of Jesus Christ a boost. My heart is full.

Fitness Challenge, Days 3-5

Hey! If you're interested in how this fitness challenge I participated in played out, give these videos a watch. I ended up only filming days 1-5, and then took a break from vlogging until the last day, day 10. I'll be posting that video soon. I'm thinking of making a more formal video about what I learned about myself during the challenge, how I feel physically/emotionally, future goals, etc.

Exercise? Diet??

The horror!

Yup. I'm taking part in a "10 Day Tune Up" challenge. It's actually almost over, but I've been slow about getting these videos edited and posted. I am definitely not the type of person to do this type of thing, but I felt compelled when my friend added me to her Facebook group. Thanks, Mae! Here are the first two days of the challenge!
