Winter is over and spring is here. Easter is coming and it is such a time of hope and renewal. Eggs will be looked for, candy eaten, pretty dresses and hair bows and snappy suits will march their way into churches to praise God for Jesus and the hope He brings. It's spring in the mountains and life is spectacular.
Our calendar has grown this month and we are celebrating the arts and Habersham County. We decided that this year in April and through the end of the year we would celebrate the counties where you find the Laurel. We will be coming to your town and shining the spotlight on all that makes your county great. We appreciate all of our advertisers and our readers in each of the 8 counties where we show up and this year we'll recognize each of you. If you are a business owner you won't want to miss your county's issue!
The end of the month is Celebrate Clayton, one of my favorite festivals. I will join the 100+ vendors and have my booth; make sure you visit the event either on Saturday, April 29th or Sunday, April 30th, rain or shine. Please pray for shine! Next month Clarkesville will host the Mountain Laurel Festival so mark your calendars and don't miss it!
The dogwoods will soon be blooming and the days will get a big longer. It'll soon be planting time and spring break will find kids and parents enjoying the outdoors. Ahhh the joy of spring.... don't you love it? Wait, my nose is itching.... someone hand me the Claritin!
