My Favorite Childhood Memories of Easter
My fondest memory of Easter time takes me back to when I was a kid still living in Arnold, Maryland. My mom had yellow daffodils and tulips planted in our front yard.
When they would bloom she would paint whiskers and a nose on my and my sister’s faces’ and we would sit with our arms tucked in and pose like rabbits. The pictures are equally adorable as they are hilarious.
I’ve posted one below of this amazing memory. I remember being so excited to sit like a rabbit and to have face paint on! I am Blondie on the right and my sister Kate is on the left.
I am so excited to decorate eggs. I remember as a kid, the ultimate goal was to see who had the prettiest stained hands afterward. I am also looking forward to our Easter baskets + the egg hunt we will have with my little nieces.
The Best Easter Candy
Growing up, our Easter baskets were always plentiful! The night before we would be in charge of putting the layers of colored fluff to coat the bottom and by morning they would be filled with Reeses PB Eggs, Jelly Beans, Cadbury Mini Eggs, Almond Joys, and a Chocolate Rabbit.
As a kiddo, sugar is sugar, and refined or not, I loved it. But, as an adult, I’ve become a tad picker with my sweets. Here are several ways to amp up your Easter basket game this year with candy options that are a little fancier. Some of these options are organic, gluten-free, and/or preservative-free.

So go ahead, explore these gourmet options, and add your personal touch. After all, Easter is about spreading joy and what’s more joyful than a basket full of deliciousness? Happy Easter, candy lovers! Here’s to an uneggspectedly gourmet-filled celebration!
