Yay! Spring has finally arrived! It is amazing how much happier I am when the weather hits 60 degrees and sunny! I take evening walks with my husband, and my neighbors are all starting to come out of hibernation, so in the evenings it’s to hang around and chat. I have my windows open, and the heat off! Ahhhh life is good! Spring also means Easter is almost here, and Sara Ruth Today was nice enough to bring Hersey’s Better Basket Blog Hop to my attention!

What is that you ask? Well, Hershey’s is giving back to the community this Easter season by making a donation to The Children’s Miracle Network. For each blog post giving virtual baskets to our friends, Hershey’s will donate $10 up to $5,000 to the charity. I was so happy to participate!

I am choosing to give my Easter Baskets to some great bloggers who either have children, or who are pregnant because I figured they couldn’t/wouldn’t turn down the opportunity to raise money for Childrens hospitals! (dirty trick I know)
