Easter Joy Away From Home - Shari's Berries 6-B

Happy Belated Easter! I apologize for the late post but being inadvertently unplugged for a week has its drawbacks. Not to mention the whole traveling across country on Easter Day aspect.

I find that most stem from our upbringing or cultural backgrounds do you find the same to be true. No matter what the holidays will forever symbolize home and family in my heart. Being out of town this Easter I worried a little about which traditions we would still be able to recreate.

It has been one heck of a week. One where you wake up in the morning with burning ribbons slicing trails of pain behind your left shoulder blade. The following morning greets you with the inability to turn your head any further left than 10 o’clock. What you don’t use clock face scales to explain […]
