I Found My Southern Peeps at an Easter Egg Hunt

I feel so wrong admitting this but you know what’s worse than finding a worm in your apple? Finding nothing in my childhood Easter egg hunts! But hey, all that egg-citing training taught me some valuable life lessons. For starters, I now know that there are people out there who would crawl through a field of cow patties just to get their hands on your golden egg.

Easter Goodie Greed

Well, I guess it’s true what they say – “the yolks on us” when it comes to basket envy! Who knew that eggs could be such a source of power and greed? But hey, let’s not judge too harshly – we all have our weaknesses. Some people prefer to scramble for their share of the egg-citement. As for me, I like to take things sunny-side up and not worry too much about who’s got more in their basket. After all, when it comes to eggs, it’s all over-easy if you just crack a smile and enjoy the hunt. 

I found something far more valuable than any old golden egg. I called it “peeps for keeps” – a blessin’ of a lesson on the sweetness of true friendship.
