Everyone knows the sweet feeling of eating wholesome food, bonding with new additions and reconnecting with family members during celebrations like weddings, Christmas, Easter and birthdays.
This weekend, families across Australia got together to celebrate Orthodox Easter, which likely resulted in thousands of smashed red eggs and suburbs wafting with the smell of lamb.
Home and Away star Ada Nicodemou was one of the many finding themselves in a food coma this weekend as she celebrated Easter with her Greek-Cypriot family.
The Home And Away actress shared an inside look into her celebrations by posting pictures from her epic get together on her Instagram.
On her story, she posted a mouthwatering video of lamb on the spit and a sweet picture of her son, Johnas, embracing his baby cousin, Sofia, the family's newest addition.
She also posted photos of herself holding a red egg with her son and niece.
Ada looked gradient and content in a stylish white dress by Aje, and her hair swept back in a low ponytail.
She captioned the post, "Sofia's first Easter 🐣 #xristosanesti."
It was a jam-packed weekend of fun for the star, who rings in her 44th birthday on May 14 and was treated to some birthday month festivities.
Ada's partner Adam Rigby surprised the actress with a helicopter flight over Sydney as an early birthday present.
She dedicated a post to Adam on Instagram to commemorate the moment, she wrote, "Adam surprised me with an early birthday present yesterday, an amazing sunset helicopter flight over Sydney."
"It was so beautiful seeing our city like I've never seen before. @blueskyhelicopters."
Clearly, still feeling smitten by the gesture, Ada made another thankful post this morning to reiterate how excited she is for the coming month that is sure to be full of more memorable moments.
"Thank you so much for my surprise, loved it. Looking forward to my birthday month 😂❤️😘," the mother-of-one penned.
It seems like a weekend surrounded by her loved ones has left Ada feeling grateful and centred as she enters her 44th year.
