What I've Learnt this Easter

It's been awhile.

Where I live; we broke up for Easter last Thursday and are currently fishing the first week of the holidays. I planned a blog post for last week, but didn't feel like the post had enough umph. I was posting just for the sake of it, and that didn't feel right. So here I am, one week later, sharing with you what I've learnt through a week of beautiful chaos. Enjoy!

I started my Easter after work on Saturday night by going to my friend's confirmation. It was a beautiful service, and really brought the meaning of Easter to my heart. What I loved most was seeing the Cathedral full of people showing their support to friends and family confirming their faith.

We had a meal on Sunday with my family and visited the grandparents, which of course meant an egg hunt ;) I went to an evening service later, followed by deep meaningful chats over ice cream. You really do learn the most over ice cream ;)

In summary: I've learnt that it's the little things that matter most. We often measure life in years, when really it's measured in moments. 

Something to think about.
All my love,
Marti xxx

P.S. Meet Donovan!


  1. Really lovely post.😀 I'm glad you decided to hold back your prepared post another week in order to meet your satisfaction. It's better to make yourself happy then upload and deep down feel remorse for not being satisfied. Unfortunately, for my family, we didn't get the opportunity to attend a church service. However, we did watch the grand church service on Songs of Praise. Hope you had a great Easter.😊

  2. Honestly, that couldn't be more true Marti! I'm going to have to start paying more attention to the little things in life that mean the most. Definetely think this message was worth waiting an extra week for xxx
