Gearing up for the big day!

Now with another first behind us (Easter Sunday) we gear up for the biggest of all firsts.  Little Miss’ first birthday.  But before we get to that, one of the biggest lessons I have learned this year is that as much as all of these firsts are important to us (my husband and I) they are also important to so many others.  Her grandparents, uncles, aunts and close friends all take part in each of these special days whether they are in the room with us or celebrating from afar via FaceTime.  We are lucky to soon be able to have many of these people together for a weekend-a late Easter celebration, an early birthday celebration- a time to have many of our favourite people in one room celebrating love and family.

No Easter Sunday is complete without attending the Αγάπη Service at church where we lit her first Easter candle also known as the lambatha (thank you Nouna and Nouno).  And since it was a first a wardrobe change was in order for the yummy Easter meal γιαγιά prepared.

Χριστός Ανέστη!!

A little ditty about Jack and really in all seriousness I'm a daughter, sister, wife and mother. I'm a Greek-American, who has transplanted in Canada. As a first time mom I'm sharing some things as I go along.
