~~My friend read through the responses and decided Keli to be the winner. She found her response to be compelling and said, “Had I not seen the picture I still would have been able to visualize this girl.” I’ll mention that I loved how Keli described the girl’s eyes as the “color of forget-me-nots” and the “dusting of freckles.”
Terri Tiffany comes in a close second. I couldn’t stop thinking about that marble description all day. Thanks to all who participated!
Congratulations, Keli! I’ll send you new Southern Living Christmas book soon. Please email me your address.
One of my favorite parts about games, watching and playing them, is seeing how excited people get when they win.
And just a tidbit to stay with the color theme of the week, my favorite board game growing up was Trivial Pursuit. We kept a box of questions behind our toilet so I memorized more than my share of answers. I also liked (and here’s where the color aspect is fulfilled in my post) the wheels with their multicolored wedges (my sisters and I used to call them wedgies. It was one of the few times I wanted more wedgies.)
Anyway, way to go Keli. Have fun the next time you witness how a winner reacts. I bet Keli’s doing flips. :D
I’d love to have feedback about this contest. Do you want me to host more in the future or not so much?
