Happy Easter!

The Greek Orthodox celebrate Easter today! I am sending all those who do my best wishes; and to all those who celebrated last week I hope you had a great time!
Also I welcome some new followers and hope those who still read me are enjoying it!
As you have noticed I don't write as often as I used to. I realised it was stressful for me to blog every day so I decided to do it only when I feel like it or when I have something to say!
Lisa and others made a comment earlier that last year I put so many spring flowery photos and found beauty around me. The truth is that I was in a better mood at this time last year and due to the situation in Greece I am rather down. The weather hasn't helped much either and we still haven't got too many flowers around. Still there are things to be grateful for and I assure you I am.
 Easter eggs from Romania.(Yes I was there a couple of days ago, posts will follow!)
 Handmade (by hubby) Easter candle with Karaghiozis shadow puppet for my Godson.
 Chocolate Easter bunnies and Steaua Bucarest chocolate for my Godson brought from Romania.
 My Godson Elias and me when we visited them for Easter.
 Lovely lilacs, Easter tsoureki(sweet) and bunny filled with Easter eggs from my best friend Gia, mum of my Godson.
 Easter eggs.
 Lilacs smell wonderful.
 Easter tsoureki.
 Our Easter candles bought from charity.
The cake I made for my brother's family for Easter. Caramelized hazelnut chocolate cake.
This post will be edited later when we have eaten it!!!!!!

The Easter dinner at my brother's was excellent.
Here are a couple of more snaps.
 Lilacs and beautiful handmade sequined eggs made by my sister-in-law's cousins!
 My sister painted beautiful red eggs. I didn't paint any eggs this year.
 Beautiful flowers in their balcony. My brother has better green fingers than me!

Happy Easter! I will always remember the Easter I spent in Crete a few years ago.

Happy Easter to you and your family. I hope the flowers start to bloom in your part of the world soon.

Happy Easter, Ariadni. I love the tsoureki ring, so different from the braided ones we make.
Love, Frieda
