This looks pretty messy, but it's controlled chaos. Anything for the actual wedding is sitting here. The reception items are all in the bonus room. See? I have a system.

My mom gave me some deer steaks from a deer my brother shot. (Thanks Caleb!) So, we ate two of those. (Yes, the former vegetarian went from not touching any meat to eating Bambi. Forgive me.) I very simply seasoned them with salt and pepper. I also made mashed potatoes and tomatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper. (Really only an effort to add some fresh non starch produce to the plate.)

4. Pollen. Any Memphian can tell you, we've had a greenish-yellow tint about us this week. The pollen is out in full force. (Not as much anymore after the storms last night.) But, pollen means the blooms are coming out. And just look at this bouquet of dogwood flowers.

Here are a few photos of the spring beauty that I'm seeing these days. The first is of my dogwood tree right outside of my window. It brings me joy every time I look outside. The second is the only remaining hydrangea from my Pascha basket. I think it looks so sweet alone in the mason jar.
(PS- I'm glad to report, there will be an increase in photography on this blog in the coming weeks. I have finally replaced my camera!)
And, in light of my friend Esther's death this week, I was reminded of this portion of St. John Crystostom's Paschal homily in my friend Hannah's facebook status.
"O Death, where is thy sting?
O Hell, where is thy victory?
Christ is risen, and thou art overthrown!
Christ is risen, and the demons are fallen!
Christ is risen, and the angels rejoice!
Christ is risen, and life reigns!
Christ is risen, and not one dead remains in the grave.
For Christ, being risen from the dead,
Is become the first-fruits of those who have fallen asleep." - St. John Crystostom, Paschal Homily
