Always an eggscellent Easter


“But who will I dye eggs with?”

Those were the first words out of my very saddened mother’s mouth when I informed her that I will be missing out on this Easter’s festivities due to work. A tradition for many, my family always seemed to take the egg-dying part of the Easter holiday to the next level, thanks in large part to my mom’s passion and hunt for the perfectly decorated egg.

Each year it was something new.
