Today is Easter Sunday ... a day that provides a 'sigh of relief' for me and signifies that Spring is on the way (among a few other things).
I grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland, just 2 miles from Washington, D.C. Though this area is never quite thought of as The South, it certainly is compared to where I live now ... in New England.
Growing up, Easter always meant the traditional Easter basket filled with goodies ... AND church. Mixed in with all this were the pretty new dresses,
Here in New England, not so much!
