Easter with Blake & Stephanie

Easter is a time of year that brings about beautiful pastel hues, celebration of the sacrifice that our savior made for each and every one of us, and quality time spent together as we welcome the blossoming new year. 

Although we may be college graduates with actual responsibilities and what-not, Stephanie and I just couldn't resist the urge to break out the easter-egg kits and dye a few eggs as we had done for so many years with our families growing up. 

After I had boiled the eggs (with substantial help and guidance from my mom at every step I must admit), and once Steph had drawn the multi-colored baths that our eggs would soon plunge into, our eggshell canvases were ready to decorate.

The time that followed was complete with both joyful conversation and silent moments of utter concentration while we painted and dyed our eggs. It was an afternoon spent with the person I most deeply love, unburdened by the stressors that would be tackled after a day of pure contentedness. We are so thankful that God has allowed our lives to intertwine into a single path, and are forever appreciative for the sacrifice that will make this path an eternal one.
