Watercolor Easter Eggs

Instead of Easter egg dye, this year we had fun with watercolor paint. No plan, no experience, just a lot of fun figuring it out as we went. What I initially thought was a watercolor fail has become some of our favorite Easter eggs. If you decide to try it yourself, build up layers of color by letting the paint dry between layers. Embrace the imperfection and create swirls, drips and unexpected color combinations.

Have a blessed and Happy Easter!


The Boardwalk at Santa Cruz, California

Honestly, this is a hard week for my family.  This weekend marks two years since we lost our sweet Rachel, my sister's 19 year old daughter, in a car accident.  Sometimes, we all just want to leave town to get our minds off of how hard it is. To be distracted and let the day pass.

I'm a "let me get my purse" kind of girl.  You want to go somewhere?  I'm in. 

Last summer we went to California for our family vacation.  I gave the boys an old digital camera of mine to shoot with. Just today (over a year later)  I went through the entire file of images and was floored over the things I saw.  The things that they saw at 10 years old.  I love them for paying attention, for noticing. For seeing the beautiful place we were in.

Thank You R-Man for these great vacation memories.
