Happy Easter from all of us at CK! We hope you’re enjoying this magnificent day and the beautiful spring weather! Each year the start of spring, and particularly this very day, symbolizes all things new. New beginnings. New life. New hope. New strength. It’s the season that embodies the joy and triumph we can experience through dedication and commitment. It’s the season to celebrate life and the undeniable hope we have! And it’s the season where nature cries out this very song.

Congratulations to our winner, SNIPP! Watch for an email to claim your prize.
SNIPP says: Thanks for the post, and reminder to appreciate the freshness of spring. Little buds appearing on the trees and the sound of ice cracking up and down the river are sure signs of renewal for me. Happy Easter!!
Our first winner didn’t respond, so we’ve chosen a new winner. Congrats, SheriK!
Sheri K: Gorgeous photos–thanks! Happy Easter! I saw lots of signs of new life on my drive to church–blooming trees and flowers and in church a couple of very cute little babies! I also try to spend time each day with my little flower garden next to my front door–my family thinks I’m crazy because I “talk” to them most days–but it gets really hot here in the summer and most things die–so I enjoy checking them out, my violas and have really grown and spread and I have several rose bushes in my front yard. They are wild with color and lots of blooms (and yep–I have several in vases around the house) and all the neighbors tell me how much they enjoy them too!
