It was now Easter 1997, and my wife has always baked a traditional Easter cake for coffee and cake, and decorated the dining room to make the event memorable and special for all of us.
Our family has always lived a quiet life with seasonal traditions that have carried on through the years, especially because they work for us and we enjoy them – and Easter is no different!
Our family has always had china and porcelain items for both daily use and as seasonal decorations around the house, and all the years David was growing up he never broke or damaged a single item.
Many of the Easter eggs displayed on my wife’s crocheted lampshade date back to David’s early grade school years, where he decorated Easter eggs both at home with his mom as well as at school.
Traditions are important to families, and after 26 years of marriage many of our family’s traditions began in the very first years of our time together as a family and continue on unchanged even today!
