It’s Friday! Good Friday, actually. Do you have Easter plans? We’re having a few people over after church. It will be the second time I’ve hosted for Easter, so I feel a little more confident this time around.

I’m excited for Miles’ first Easter and have been furiously working on his first Easter basket. Mark and I colored eggs last night and I love the results. If you celebrate Lent, the coming of Easter morning feels a little bit like Christmas – the waiting, the anticipation, the traditions. And I so love the traditions associated with Easter.

If you haven’t decorated eggs yet, it’s not too late! Here are some easy, beautiful ideas. (via Style Me Pretty.)

A yummy spring pasta recipe. (via Cup of Jo)

I’ve been struggling to find the right lyrics to put on a canvas for my March project. But then I saw this gorgeous canvas in the new issue of Covet Magazine. I love the idea of blending several short beautiful phrases! (via Covet via Alanna Cavanagh.)

Learning to be ok with being last. We all struggle with this one in different ways, don’t we? (via Darling Magazine.)

An essay on friendship – are your friendships twigs or trees? (via Coffee + Crumbs.)

Surprises help babies to learn. This is why they like bubbles! (via The Atlantic)

A hilarious personality quiz based on Easter candy preferences. (My true favorites, those horrific marshmallow eggs, weren’t even on the list!) (via The Kitchn.)

I sort of think this kind of post deserves a hashtag like #problemsnoonebutabloggerhas but seriously, are you a slow blogger? Would you try it? (via decor8.)

Speaking of Easter, these cute egg-cups make excellent desk organizers. (via Better Homes & Gardens.)

One writer on entrepreneurship. (via Kinfolk Magazine)

Have a blessed Good Friday and Easter!
