Happy Easter to those of you Dear Readers who celebrate. Our oldest daughter, Alyssa, could not come home for Easter this year and it was our first a part. In her honor, we decided to watch the 1964 Disney Mary Poppins. Mary Poppins was Alyssa’s favorite movie as a toddler. She would wake up and call out ‘P Poppins Mama!’ I would start the VCR and we would act out the movie together. When the tape finished, we rewound it and began the movie again. Tonight we had a gorgeous meal of rib roast, roasted potatoes, steamed asparagus, creamy, cheesy bean dish, Tsoureki and lemon meringue pie. I told Mia stories of how her sister and I danced around the house just as Mary and Bert do during the Step in Time routine and laughed as we reminisced. Holidays are for making and sharing memories and I hope yours are beautiful. Wishing you all happy times.
