June's Write-Away Winner

I love reading travel stories and you did not disappoint me this month. Thanks for all of your wonderful entries, the variety and creativity of your posts is great.

There were 48 entries this month and Lei from My Many Colored Days read them all. Carefully selecting and judging, she's done a wonderful job which is exactly what I'd expect from a musician, mother and writer of her talents. Come back later this month when I'll have a chance to give her a proper introduction. Thanks also to Soapier.com for the lovely prize of a $50 gift certificate--that's going to buy a lot of soaps and lotions! (I need to get more of that bergamot-coriander stuff, it was wonderful!)

. . . And the winner is:

Fluorophore with Detours into the Eternal

This 30-something mother has been blogging for about a year and has an obvious passion for science. Beyond that she is a bit of a mystery--you'll have to read her wonderful winning post to see what other interesting tidbits you can discover.

Honorable Mention:

Celita at The Spices of Life with The Longest Journey

Congratulations to the winner! I will have to check this out.
Now, when am I going to find the time to read every entry, I wonder? Good thing I've added Scribbit to the new BLOG LIST provided by Blogger.
