Easter in the North














Although my family is one for tradition, this year we ventured northward to visit my lacrosse playing brother in Philly this Easter. Easter, not only is a time of celebrating Jesus' resurrection, has developed into a full-fledged family fellowship holiday, full of egg-dying and ham baking. This unconventional year served as an opportunity to celebrate in a completely different way. 
I was quite surprised to step off the plane and not be frozen to the bone.  Native to Florida, the cold and I tend to not get along. And seeing how the 2014 massive winter storm invaded and made a home for itself up north, I was fearful of a frosty experience. However, this past winter's seemingly endless polar vortex transformed into a glorious sixty degree weekend, which provided the perfect weather for watching a lacrosse game. But still, I found myself shivering. 
 Even though the holiday was not filled with homemade desserts, or colored eggs, we managed to make a weekend of it. We met my brother's friends, attended his lacrosse game, and dined in some fabulous restaurants. Overall, it was a successful weekend.
