I don’t know about you, but I love the breaks between the extreme seasons (winter and summer). Spring and Fall are probably my favorite seasons. There’s just something about a change in temperature that gives you that feeling of a fresh, new start. With spring, comes Easter! I was born on Easter Sunday, so this holiday holds a special place in my heart.
While we don’t do the whole Easter Bunny thing at our house, I do make Easter baskets for my kids. I have a 7-year-old girl, and a 4-year-old boy. My mom is the master of celebrations and makes any occasion so fun; I learned a lot from her. To this day, she always put together such fun Easter baskets and Christmas stockings.
I want to celebrate holidays with my kids, but I also don’t want to bring random crap into my house either. So, when I put together Easter baskets, I like to focus on things that will get used up or be beneficial to my kids.

I’m a book lady, so obviously I am going to use this opportunity to buy more books for my kids! A few of our Easter titles are already sold out for 2019, but here are some others that would be perfect!
