You Like Me!

Hi everyone, hope you all had a wonderful Easter with family and friends! I myself enjoyed my Easter Peeps! You know they don't just make Peeps for Easter anymore but that's the only time I eat them know! I had a friend who thought no one actually ate Peeps - but I do and so do a million other peeps, I mean people!

I'm not sure you can tell but i am a little excited today (who's kidding who, I am ecstatic!), you see I won a writing contest! Yes, I know whaaaaat? Allow me to explain...

The lovely Anita at opened up her heart and left Act IV of her beautiful play La Diva to her blogging audience. Four of us picked up the gauntlet and wrote our hearts out. We waited one whole week for the results and on Saturday all was revealed. As you can see I was elated to discover the results...

I am humbled and estatic at the same time! I really feel like this girl.... like me, you really like me!

I would like to honor the other contestants for their blood, sweat and tears, you see this was no easy feat....

The sweet and talented Sherry from

The inspiring and noble Cathy from

The whimsical and creative Dutchess from

Lastly and most importantly, thank you Anita for opening your heart and sharing your creativity with us. I can't imagine another author who would leave the climax of her enchanting story to the blogging public to complete. Bravo! Awesome! Thank you! You have inspired me to put pen to paper once again.

BLESS YOU TODAY AND ALWAYS IN YOUR ENDEAVORS and all that awaits you!!! Don't forget to send me your address via the email I sent you so you can get your book!!
