Hippity hoppity Easter's on its way, as my grandma would say! What are your plans for this special holiday? I can’t wait for the Easter Bunny to arrive, along with Peter Cotton Tail! My favorite part of Easter has to be eating all the candy in the baskets (chocolate dipped Peeps and Reese's Easter eggs)!! Who else still receives Easter baskets as adults? My parents and grandma always carried out the tradition of doing Easter egg hunts regardless of how old my sister and I are. OH, and its not the adult version with little liquor bottles, we still prefer money in ours, haha. Whether its gathering with friends and family at someone’s house or heading out to have a nice meal, I hope its super special day! I’ve found some local spots for brunch and dinner to enjoy this holiday.
