Celebrating Easter…

easter3

Easter is always one of my most favorite Holidays. I love the idea of welcoming spring, spending time with family and the self reflection over why we celebrate Easter. Plus I LOVE the old Easter Hymns that we usually sing in church on Good Friday and Easter Sunday. My parents and middle sister came out to visit us this weekend. It was so nice having them here. I always miss them so much!! I wish we all got to see each other more often. Sunday morning I had to wake up super early to go and decorate the church for Easter. I love getting to pick all new decorations for special services. This year I went with vintage glassware, fake succulent plants, rocks, a pretty floral print and the words “Oh Happy Day”. I was really happy with how it all came out.

Whenever we get dressed up I always try to make it a point to take some pictures because well, it doesn’t happen very often. I was so excited for all our new easter outfits. We were looking dang good if you ask me. Ha! We were pretty much a walking Gap advertisement. Can you blame us though? Everything is so good in there lately!

I think I’ve decided that Finley looks just like my Dad, which in turn makes her look just like me! Between my Mom and Dad, I look way more like my Dad. I think Finley is a little Mini me of him. I was feeling quite blessed by our wonderful families this weekend. Wish we got to see Kev’s parents as well.

  12. You all look beautiful and super festive! Would you mind please posting the lens you use? I’m trying to get into some outfit photography but my lens isn’t quite wide enough. If you get a chance, that would be lovely. Great to see baby Finley growing so beautifully.

  13. That photo of Rowan with her hands in her pockets, so cute!

  14. You did a beautiful job, Jen. Love the tables you put together at your church. And yes, we love Easter around here too… our service was SO good this year and it’s such an amazing time to be with family + reflect. Love seeing photos of your parents/clan… you’re all the cutest. And your dress?! Fabulous, love it paired with those boots! xo

  15. Beautiful family!! The church spread turned out very nice! Wish I had an area in my house decorated like that all the time LOL

  16. A dress perfect for nursing- sold! You all look great

  17. Your family is too cute!

  18. Y’all look so cute, and I love the sentiment behind this post.

    I also think it’s really cool that you use your talents to help decorate your church. What a great, unique way to get involved. 🙂

  19. You should really think about blowing up the first pic the last and the one with the girls you and your mom. Good job on the Church decorations they look like they came from interior decorating magazine.
