We all love this time of year. The dogwoods and azaleas are blooming. It's a time of reflection and renewal but also a time for Easter egg hunts and Easter baskets full of chocolate-covered marshmallow bunnies and pink and yellow Peeps. We've collected some funny and some more reverent quotes for this special time of year. Take this time to enjoy your family, to laugh, smell the fresh grass and fragrant flowers, and most of all, give thanks for the little things in life that we take for granted each day. Happy Easter!
