Happiest of Easter Weekends to You, Dear Friends!

Hello sweet friends!  I am writing on this beautiful, sunny spring day to wish you the loveliest of Easter weekends!  And just for you, I set up a little photo shoot this afternoon!  I hope these photos leave you feeling warm and fuzzy and ready to celebrate one of my favorite holidays!  Incidentally, these little friends are on loan from my mom's lovely coop!  It is fun to have them here in our home for the Easter weekend and I see this becoming a family tradition for sure!  Enjoy!

I used the cross process application in Picnik's photo editing program to give these images a soft, vintage glow.
Amidst the baskets of chocolate bunnies, fuzzy chicks and egg hunts, let us not forget the real reason why we celebrate Easter! 

1 Peter 1:3
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead... " 

 Thank you for your sweet visit today!
Best Wishes and Blessings,
Amanda
