Time really flies by, I feel like it was just yesterday that my girls Shoush, Hera and I decided that we were going to officially fast this year for lent; we gave up chocolates, junk food, pepsi/coke and beer. I had never noticed how much I loved these foods, until I couldn't have them. It was my first time fasting ever, and it was different from what I expected. There were days when it was super easy, and then days when everyone I saw was eating a Nutella crepes and drinking coke. Forty five days later though, I'm alive and well.
Armenians are reallllyyy into making lot's of Easter cookies, beriosh, ma3moul and other sweet sweet things, and this year my mom went all out. She made around five different types of sweets, and we're only three people in the house! So if you'll excuse me, there's a yummy beriosh calling my name.
Have you guys ever fasted?
Happy Easter to all of you celebrating this week, or the next.
