Being away for school has its upsides and its downsides. One major downside is missing out on holidays with the family, and in particular, Easter. Last year, Easter happened when we were in the thick of exams, and this year, just before exams start. It’s never practical to fly home for it.
This year, we went to Good Friday service at a nearby church and had a great Easter dinner cooked by my roommate, but I really missed Easter service at my church and all the yummy things my house is filled with during Easter: chocolate hot cross buns, pastel cupcakes from Butter, and dozens and dozens of canélés and financiers. And of course, all the Cadbury mini eggs you could ever want.
Stella, of course, was there to enjoy every sugary bite on my behalf.
