A German Easter Sunday

First off, a very happy Easter to all of you! I hope you’re having a wonderful time with your family, friends, good food and loads of fun!


After spending the last two years celebrating Easter the Danish way, we headed down to Germany to try a German Easter for a change. We celebrated my mom’s birthday on Friday before it was Easter time earlier today.

As is a tradition in my family, my mom had colored some hard-boiled eggs and my dad had hidden them for us “kids” to find. As my parents have a very lean-and-clean interior style, hiding eggs is quite the challenge, even though my dad has almost thirty years of practice. While he still manages to find some tricky spots, most of them are… well, not so challenging!


After that short adventure, we were ready for some serious Easter brunching action! The rest of the family arrived, and we poured ourselves some bubbly to toast before digging in.


My mom is an expert at color-coordinating to the tee, and she put together the most beautiful and inviting Easter brunch table.


She even baked these little Easter eggs and bunnies, and had all sorts of cute little Easter-themed decorations and sweet treats.


I mean, how adorable are these speech bubble pins?! I love puns, so I might be biased.


After we had stuffed ourselves and made German “Soleier”, my family style (cut a hard-boiled egg in half, carefully remove the yolk, and put in a few drops of oil, vinegar, a tiny bit of mustard, salt, and pepper, pop the yolk back in and voilà!), it was already time to head to the airport again - these family visits are always over way too quickly!

On the way back, we were rewarded with the most beautiful flying conditions (which totally made up for a very bumpy descent into Frankfurt on Thursday), and now the rest of Easter will be spent relaxing at home.


How do you celebrate Easter? I hope you had a great time!

For your daily dose of wanderlust and stunning shots of planes.

Even though the weather is not that bad the planes still need de-icing. Our photographer caught this beautiful moment at the airport ❄️

I met Charlotte last year when she taught the iPhone photography workshop at The Hive conference. Her account is full of amazingly moody and artistic photos.

How insane lucky I feel today.
