In anticipation of Easter, I want to share with you two of my favorite Easter stories from Living.  One is a story on Sugar Eggs that ran in April 1997 and the other is A Rainbow of Easter Baskets that appeared in the April 2006 issue.  I hope you find the images and ideas from these stories as beautiful and inspiring as I do.  Wishing everyone a wonderful, happy Easter.
