We canceled our annual egg and beer hunt this Easter, due to rain and Tom’s impending 40th birthday party in a couple of months. (There are going to be two bouncy castles, people – we need to stay focused.) It ended up being a lovely, quiet, rainy day and we had a lovely brunch with our neighbors. We actually hit the jackpot there, because Joan and Hank had us over at the beginning of the week to celebrate their Passover Seder with them, and then at the end of the week to celebrate Easter. Perfect bookend events.

I’ve never shown you this unbelievable bowl that Joan gave me (ok, us) for Christmas. It’s simple and delicate and perfect. Filled with Cadbury eggs, this one goes to eleven.

This photo actually cracks me up, because the eggs are these gorgeous pale blue eggs from Finn and Susie’s chickens, and the nest was abandoned in our back yard – I like them together, even though the nest is woefully small for the eggs. What would happen if they were real? It would be like swaddling a baby in a washcloth. I still love looking at them together though.

    Laura, this message is more for Tom I guess, but jeez, you know you’re getting old when you can’t handle two parties in three months! I never thought 40 would affect someone of good Australian stock so jarringly.

    I know Joe – it sure sounds shocking. But in all fairness to Tom, really it’s not so much his stamina being tested as our savings, for all the birthday bevvies we’re planning to purchase. Turns out forty IS the new thirsty after all…

  5. Ok, I can’t just sit back here and watch the rumors whirl about. Here are the facts:
    1. I love parties

    Anyone who thinks otherwise clearly hasn’t seen my party hat. In addition, my party hat is always ready for immediate departure for any and all party destinations.
