H A P P Y E A S T E R !
Easter is filled with spring flowers, eggs dyed in bright pastels, and candy. But most importantly Easter is about Jesus. Easter is about love, pain, and life. Jesus died for me. Jesus died for you. He was painfully tortured and brutally murdered so we may have life. That is not the end of the story though. The tomb is empty!! Jesus rose and made the impossible possible and the unbelievable believable.
“..but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed with lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ Then they remembered his words.”
Luke 24 : 2 – 8
“But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.”
1 Corinthians 15 : 20 – 22
Weekends with my parents are the best weekends filled with lots of yummy food. The past few days have been packed with delicious meals and awesome fashion shows. Fashion week is a pretty exciting week for Charleston. Marion square is filled with fashionable people, loud bumping music, and fancy drinks. This year was my first year actually seeing a show which was pretty exciting. Two years ago I was back stage working as an intern for the model team so it was really nice to have the opportunity to sit and watch the girls strut their stuff on the runway in beautiful clothes [[including my gorgeous roommate]].

Throughout the weekend we ate incredible oysters at Hank’s seafood, hung out at the Charleston Fashion week bridal show, and got some soft serve from Leon’s. and then there was Sunday..
This rainy Sunday was full of coffee, shark socks, and reading. There is nothing better than walking around in your pajamas all day and wrapping up in a blanket every chance you get.
Excited but not completely ready for this week to get rolling.
I think I’ll just crawl back in bed with my shark socks
Currently — the fried oyster sandwich from Leon’s is my favorite meal for lunch.
Perfectly fried oysters with lettuce, tomato, avocado, and comeback sauce on a soft golden brown bun. I am drooling. It is THAT good!
A little bit about Leon’s.. It used to be an old auto body shop so the outside seating and inside seating are separated by a garage door that is lifted during open hours. It has quite the unique atmosphere. The “Leon’s” in the painted sign on the building is pretty much original, kept from “Leon’s auto body shop.” The inside of the restaurant is the coolest and scruffiest restaurant in Charleston by far.
AND they have soft serve ice cream in cones for dessert. That’s all.
