Russian Easter

Life has been really busy around here with my parents visiting and the launch of my new site. I finally managed to post photos from our Russian Easter celebration. Enjoy!

I think I'm becoming more sentimental with age. We haven't celebrated Russian Easter in about ten years, since my great grandmother Zoya was alive. My memories of it are mostly of the recipes and I realized how important it is to keep those recipes alive. I was so engrossed in the party that I didn't get to take as many photos as I would have liked. But it was a lot of fun. We shared Russian recipes with our mostly non-Russian friends, played a lot of croquet and enjoyed Lee's garden. Susie brought buckets full of roses and though it wasn't as warm as the day before, the weather cooperated and we were able to spend most of the day outdoors. Thank you to all who made it happen, it was so nice seeing friends we don't get to see often enough. Hopefully it won't be another ten years before the next celebration.
