It didn't really feel much like Easter around here, what with the upper 30 degree temperatures and all the snow on the ground, but at least we had some sun. We went to the Episcopal church in our neighborhood. We had no idea what we were in for. The service was a bit quirky - nothing like the beautiful traditional service we're used to from attending Trinity in Tulsa. After the initial shock wore off (the rector literally acted out the Gospel, complete with pretending to peer in the tomb), it really grew on us. In fact, we are thinking of going back next week to see what a normal Sunday service is like.
After church, we met our friends, Scott and Nicole, for brunch at Bin Cafe in Bucktown. I had a mimosa flight (I think there were 4 different kinds), so that was really fun. We really have had a nice, low-key Easter. It would have been nice to be able to spend today with our family, but Easter just isn't one of those holidays that justifies the super expensive airfare to Tulsa. Hope everyone had a nice Easter!
