Easter has always had a special place in my family's heart - especially on my Mom's side of the family. As early as I can remember, my mom always took us to Easter church at Manteo Baptist Church where often we would have a huge church picnic afterwards. There was a muscadine grape vine in the church yard and all of us kids would play hide and seek. Good memories. When we traveled to visit family in Arkansas, all of the families got together - Mimi, Grami, Aunt Julia, Aunt Merethyne...all the leading special women in my life and of course my mom.
Many of the photos in the gallery below are at different times of my life at Easter. I miss those egg hunts in Manteo and I miss the large family dinners at Aunt Julia's. Cherish those moments while you can, kiddos.
