Happy Easter!

We decided at the last minute to head to D.C. for Easter, and be with family! (It feels so good to say that, living so far away from family makes us appreciate moments like this.)

The weekend was filled with an Easter Egg hunt, movies, tennis, reconnecting with one of my dearest friends from law school, a gorgeous Easter dinner, and an Easter service.

The 4:1 parent to child ratio on the Easter egg hunt was comical, but none of us were complaining with these two.

This is how the whole hunt went, Tillie would find the eggs then bring them to Pierce. Clara unfortunately (or fortunately?) slept through the whole thing, so Jane had plenty of adults to dote on her as well, including our cousin Jane Elizabeth (and if our Jane turns out as beautiful inside and out as Jane, we'll be lucky parents).

The grand hosts, and my idols.

And of course we had to (try) to take some Easter pictures on Sunday.

I can't help but say how blessed we feel, especially on Easter. The knowledge that we have a Savior and that He lives, has changed our marriage and our family in every way. The more we center our lives on trying to become like Him, the better life is. 

And last, getting out some energy before the drive home.

Happy Easter!

General Conference Weekend

What a wonderful weekend. My heart is full of gratitude, and sings with David's in Psalm 136, "O give thanks to the Lord!"

Lately I've been yearning to feel centered again, and this week I've been able to do that. Everything has found it's proper place, and even the sun was shining!

General Conference brought me so many answers, and funny enough (after my post this week) steered me in a very different direction than the questions I had written down! I guess that's the beautiful thing about revelation.

I am ready to yet again turn over a new leaf, start a new chapter, and realign my life more closely with the best version of myself. I'm grateful for eternal reminders and heavenly tugging that come when we try to do those things that bring us closer to God. And I'm especially grateful this weekend for the messages that seemed to be sent from Heaven just for me.

Here are a few pictures of what was a very good day!

How to carry two babies at once

Just in case you were wondering.

And doesn't he make it look too easy?
