Dunkin' Donuts on a Sunday morningAlmond milk latte from Not Just Coffee in Charlotte, North CarolinaChuys has the best tortilla chips and salsaLunch at Chuys with Adam

Easter and Adam’s birthday occurred on the very same weekend this year and this called for celebration, like a quick trip to grab a half-dozen donuts before I put a lick of makeup on my face on Sunday morning. It called for lunch with my favorite guy at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in Charlotte. It called for a visit to our favorite brewery and our favorite coffee shop which seems to be becoming a birthday tradition that we’re totally on board with. It called for a sweet Easter service the night before Easter Sunday. It called for many sweet moments with my favorite guy. I really do love him and am so thankful for him and the fact that he was born.

I am so incredibly thankful for all that Easter means, not just on a Sunday, but every single day. I am thankful for Jesus, thankful for grace and the fact that a perfect savior died for me. It’s too much to comprehend, really.

I hope your weekend was just as celebratory as ours. Perhaps for no other reason than the fact that it was the weekend. T-minus four days until the next one!
