Spring for our family always includes a hike at Highland Springs. One would think that with the combination of warmer temperatures and readily available water, I would be prepared for the spontaneous rope swing swim. Yet year after year I bring home soggy kids and, yes, you guessed it, a soggy car. I guarantee towels will be in our trunk before we leave the house again! This week we’re excited to promote the second week of the NCO/EPIC Poetry Competition. Enter a poem, and you could win a $100 gift card and be eligible to win a night away at the Tallman Hotel. And if your Easter weekend isn’t already scheduled, be sure to check out the Bloom’s calendar for some fun ideas.
