easter twenty sixteen

March 27 2016. 001 (3)

we woke up easter sunday in southbeach at uncle DD’s house

Lily, Savannah and i met DD at his house on saturday, spent the morning at the beach, afternoon on lincoln road and the night at DD’s house

once awake and showered, the girls and i headed back to the district to help set up for the traditional easter brunch

that also allowed for sleepy and tired DD to get a bit more rest

the girls decorated the garden, the grown ups set up the food stations and slowly neighbors and friends (the usual suspects) started stumbling in

it felt right to be in miami for easter surrounded by good friends in the same garden for the third year in a row

Will was desperately missed

by everyone

but mostly by me and Lily

happy monday friends

hope you all had a happy weekend

previous easters: twenty fifteen, twenty fourteen, twenty thirteen, twenty twelve, twenty eleven (all miami easters. that sort of hurt a little…)

ps- it has also been tradition for Lily to go through her eggs with DD once the hunt is over. this year was no different but unfortunately i didn’t grab the moment with my nikon. the moment is here though. this year Lily even shared a handful of african animals with her DD

and also, this
