Happy Belated Easter!!
I would have to say Easter is my favorite holiday. When I was young, my family would drive to my grandma's for the the annual Easter Egg Hunt. I was a fun time where all my cousins and I would hide in the house while my aunt would hide the eggs. We would then leave in age order (youngest to oldest) and race out to find as many eggs as we could find. I remember being super excited during the day and crashing really early at night meaning I fell asleep at my grandma's and woke up in my bed at home.
I will say even though I don't make it every year anymore, there still is the annual Easter Egg Hunt at my grandma's and I miss it when I'm not there. Just like this year I missed it. Being from six hours away I tend not to go home unless I have more than a four day weekend. My dad and I talk about it every time and both agree every time that it isn't worth the travel home when I have work I could be productive on. Generally a friend or two are on campus so I have company but this Easter no one seemed to be around.
I was especially grateful for my Family in Faith for inviting me over for dinner and making me an Easter Basket. I was on campus for Friday and Saturday and wasn't too lonely. I did get a bit fidgety on Friday afternoon when the power was out all day. I did use that time to clean out my papers and catch up on some reading but I still became a bit stir crazy. I debated on going to Burlington but I kept trying to convince myself to be productive.
Sunday was the best day of the weekend. I got to see some of the community members I come to know over the past 2 years. It was so nice to see families at mass and receive hugs from friends. I even got to see a friend of mine and her family whom I haven't seen in awhile. Mass at the Chapel was beautiful and I helped out by Alter Serving. After mass I had brunch with my friend and her family and then went over to my Family in Faith. I felt and overwhelming amount of love by receiving 3 Easter Baskets from different areas of my life. I would like to say thank you to them for making me feel loved.

It was so nice to see everyone come back to campus and hear how everyone's Easter's went. Down to the final 3 week crunch before summer. Hopefully I hear back from an internship soon!!
