{ Easter Dinner :: Grandma's Garden }

Every Easter, and every holiday for that matter, The Messick family joins together at Grandma & Grandpa's house to celebrate the season. And over the years we have celebrated together in some pretty amazing homes. There was the house on the sand in Capo Beach (everyone's fave!), the incredible ranch house in San Juan Capistrano that was home to chickens, goats, and acres of fruit trees, and even a Spanish Colonial perched high on The Bluff. Each home was special in it's own way and each holds many memories near and dear to my heart.

Currently my grandparent's live in the seaside town of San Clemente, one of my favorite coastal cities in California. But what makes this home so special to me is the tender touch my Grandma & Grandpa have put into their garden. I find it fascinating to walk along the brick path that my dear Grandpa painstakingly stacked brick by brick for his sweetheart. Together they have made it a sanctuary for birds, butterflies, and even their grandchildren. I think everyone will agree that their favorite thing about Grandpa & Grandma's house is Grandma's Garden. Here's a little sneak peak into their backyard oasis, where we all enjoyed our Easter feast this year.
