I hope everyone enjoyed Easter yesterday. I sure did. The sun was shining, the service was meaningful and joyous and I spent time with loved ones. What more can you ask for? 🙂
My neighbor and I talked about how we wished it was like this every Sunday. People were smiling and greeting each other. I even donned my Easter hat. I come from a long line of church-hat-wearing-women, so I decided to pick up the mantle this year. How did I do?
As the honey and I walked down U Street, one woman said we looked like an Easter parade! 🙂 I also had several older ladies tell me they were going to steal my hat. Ha! Ya’ll, I think I had the biggest hat at church. 🙂 I did notice that the hats were far and few between. I however refuse to believe that the Easter hat is dead. It is definitely a tradition of older generations, but I think it is one worth preserving. You walk a little straighter and smile a little wider. For me, it conjures up a time of sophisticated ladies and chivalrous gentlemen. And I don’t think anything is wrong with that.
Also, tonight get a sneak peek of Julie Dexter’s new album at “The Listening” at Marvin from 7-9PM. Her album, New Again officially drops tomorrow (4/26).
