We had a low-key Easter this year but it was really great for us. The weekend started off with sunshine and warm temps! i love riding in the car with the windows down, holding my man’s hand. He picked me up from work early on Friday and we went to French Meadow Bakery for a coconut steamer and a late lunch for him. We sat talking about the future and filtering through things life has thrown at us but in it all celebrating how God is moving in our life. Then we went for a stroll around Lake Calhoun because it was such nice weather.
On saturday we both worked in the morning and the afternoon was spent relaxing and making this video of us playing the song, Christ is Risen by Matt Maher. It was a beautiful thing to make music together. this was the first song i learned on the glockenspiel he got me for my bday. enjoy watching!
Justin led worship at Valley Creek church on Sunday (Easter morning) and i got to come up on stage during the end of the service to play the glock during that same song. Played my first Easter service ever!
after church we had brunch at a restaurant called Pier 500 which is in Hudson, Wisconsin (a cute little town right on Lake Saint Croix) – the food was amazing! (the best he’s ever had, according to J) The view was gorgeous and there were cute little tulips on every table. we loved it being just the two of us.
after brunch we took a veeerrrrry long nap! it was great. the afternoon turned out sunny and 48 so i went for a quick run to workoff all that food and in the evening we hungout with some very dear friends. it was a wonderful holiday for us, even though we were away from family.
but now WE are a family, me + him.
