I love cute, cuddly bunnies!

I couldn't resist these fluffy little guys at the Swissotel in Istanbul where we had brunch this morning. Unfortunately, they were fenced off to prevent children (and big kids like myself) from playing with them.

I grew up having rabbits as pets my whole life in Nebraska. First, there was Bugs Bunny, then Snowflake (who lived about 15 years) and then a floppy-eared rabbit my brother named Pepper. In college, for some reason, I thought it was a brilliant idea to buy a dwarf bunny. I named him Spaz because he would hop around my apartment so fast. Needless to say, Spaz went home to live with my parents after less than 2 years.

Wherever you are today, I hope you find some joy in either real Easter bunnies or some chocolate covered ones.

Happy Easter from Istanbul!

@Joyce, Happy Easter to you and your family back in the U.S.! It's a beautiful sunny day here and about 70 F. A lovely spring day. I don't think my parents were too thrilled about the bunny, but they took him in anyway. ;-)

@Annie, same to you! Do you have the Turkish bunny fortune tellers down in Bodrum? I always want to take one of them home here. ;-)
