The Scariest Write-Away Winner

Thank you to all who joined us this month for the Write-Away Contest and thanks to Shalee at Shalee's Diner for judging the 45 submissions all about "things that scare me." Go have some ice cream at her diner and tell her you love her. She'll like that.

. . . And the winner is:

Mopsy at Lifenut with Fear

Gretchen is mother to Aidan Elizabeth (10), Ryley (8), Sam (7), Tommy (5), Joel (3) and Beatrix (1) which may leave you questioning how she has time to write award-winning posts but somehow she's pulling it off. Married to Lee and living in Denver she also happens to know all about Casa Bonita and their world-famous all-you-can-eat sopapillas punctuated by cliff diving, escaping gorillas and cowboy shootouts (I'm married to a man from "The Springs" so I've lived with stories of Casa Bonita for 15 years now).

Honorable Mentions:

Robin at Around the Island with Nut of the Month Club
Tracy M at Dandelion Mama with Drops of Heaven
Nannabee at My Thoughts on Life with A World Without Love
