Easter Recap & a Blogger Date!

As promised, here's a quick recap of our Easter Sunday! Coincidentally, Ashley, from Adventures of Newlyweds, and her husband moved into town the day before Easter, so we were lucky enough to spend Easter together! Talk about a special blate :) {blogger + date/meet up = blate} 

The morning started with a beautiful church service. It was titled "Hope". Perfect!
Ashley and I at church:

Then we went back to my house and my family prepared a delicious array of food! So.much.food.
Don't forget dessert!! I think we had about 5 different desserts...yum!
My grandma made this lemon meringue  pie:
Pretty Easter Flowers! 

In typical blogger fashion, Ashley and I headed outside to take some pictures with our cute pups.

Ashley brought her darling little Bella to our house, so Bella and Hope were able to meet! Hope was ready to play, but Bella was a tiny bit unsure of my hyper little maniac.

In the end, they became friends and even got close to kissing :)

What a blessed Easter it was! I was so grateful to be able to spend it with my family, as well as Ashley and her husband. Both of them are such sweet and genuine people and my family was so excited to have them over! {They're used to the whole "blog friend" thing now:) } Meeting Ashley was so wonderful- not only is she totally gorgeous, she's also one of the sweetest girls ever. I love her love for adventure and travel.  I can't wait to spend more time together after I'm done with school in June. First, though, I'm going to see her in Michigan in a few weeks. I'm going to visit my boyfriend the same weekend they are going to visit family...crazy! So fun. I heart blogging!

All photos were taken and edited by Ashley. Visit Adventures of Newlyweds to say hello :)
