And The Winner Is....

To precede the announcement, I just have to say that this was seriously a super hard decision! I could feel the love that everyone had for the person they nominated. Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who participated. I hope you participate in our future contests.

I have chosen Tanya, nominated by Michelle.

Michelle wrote a 3 page short story about her friendship with Tanya. It was hilarious and I loved reading it. I was able to catch a true glimpse of Tanya through her best friend's eyes. The story was entertaining and endearing. I'd like to share a few snippets with you all (I hope that is ok with you Michelle and Tanya).

"When we get to the parking lot, she can’t remember where she parked. We search among the rows. Luckily, it’s not hard to find her car. It’s a tiny red truck that already had a Tasmanian devil on the tire flap.

I call Tanya a few hours later to ask her about weekend plans. She always seems to be driving when I call her. “What is he doing!? This guy just pulled in front of me! I swear I’m a magnet for lousy drivers!” I shake my head and smile as I picture Tanya driving. She may be one of those people who isn’t outgoing until you break into her shell, but she is one aggressive driver. She doesn’t realize that she tailgates and that the people who are supposedly cutting her off are really getting followed by someone who speeds up when they want to change lanes.

We talk about all the places we want to go to some day, all the food we like, all the books we want to read, and the boys we’ve dated or who we wish we were dating."

I am excited for your upcoming photo shoot together!

You are so fun. I cannot believe someone sent in a 3 page letter! That is awesome. Can't wait to see the shoot.
