The boys dyed eggs with my mom on Good Friday - something I look forward to every Easter.
You guys all know what a big fan I am of the every day moments, but traditions hold a big place in my heart, too.
And so, it was important to me to film it. To create this living memory of my little boys and my mother doing something I had done as a child, and something they'll do one day with theirs.
(Plus, Easter eggs are so, so pretty.)
To be perfectly honest, though, I wasn't sure how it would go this year, or whether it would be worth filming at all.
The three of them had been bickering all morning, and my mom was not psyched about being filmed.
But something about those eggs, immersed in color and tradition, turned it all around.
I already treasure this film.
Even as a tradition, no year will be exactly the same.
I'm glad I stuck it out, and created a time capsule of THIS one.
(I managed to get in a couple times, myself, too. Keep a look out. :-) )
If traditions and every day moments speak to your heart, reach out to me. I'd love to create a time capsule of your family's life, just for you.
