Blown Away...


I won a writing contest! I just received the email and could not have been more surprised! The Write-Away contest hosted by Scribbit requested submissions on the topic of love. The moment I heard about this from my pal Megan, I knew which one I would enter. The entry, A Lime Popsicle was written in honor of my Mom and a wonderful memory we shared while she was battling cancer. It happened just a few months before she passed away which makes it all the more special to me.

I am honored that this post was chosen as the winner and hope you enjoy reading the story as much as I did living it. It's definitely a "restore your faith in people" kinda story...that's for sure!

Thank you Michelle at Scribbit and guest judge Sabine. I'm genuinely surprised at being chosen!
