Easter Preparations | Kayla Lunde – Documentary + Lifestyle Photographer | Chicago + West Suburbs

Every year since having kids I feel like the holidays get closer and closer to what I remember them feeling like as a child. I feel like once I was ‘no longer a child’ but before I had my own, the holidays had lost a bit of that Magic. Sure they were still wonderful and beautiful and filled with new memories with family and friends, but something was missing. There is something about viewing holidays through the lenses of a child that adds so much to those extra special days. For example, the simple act of taking an egg and changing the color of its shell… for years my husband and I didn’t even bother. Once our oldest was at an age in which he could engage in the activity though we jumped at the chance and low and behold probably had more fun than he did! Lol. Every new year seems to bring a little bit more of that magic back for us. Now, watching our children experience the holidays together, well I truly can’t think of anything better than that. There was so much squealing and giggling and giddy excitement on Saturday when we dyed our eggs for Easter morning breakfast. Of course, there were a few tears shed, mainly by the wee one who still struggles to wait his turn and understand the flow of the activity.. but we had an absolute blast together. We dyed 2 dozen eggs but I believe the boys could’ve easily done 20. Next year we may have to do more, or maybe start earlier in the week, we shall see! I’m already nostalgic looking back on these images from just a few weeks ago. I can’t imagine how I will feel in 20 years time, but I am so very thankful to have these images to rummage up past memories for me. I hope your Easter was as blessed as ours.
