11/24/2012 - Mountains to Climb, Winner

There are Mountains to Climb: An Inspirational Journey, by Jean M. Deeds

Welcome to our newest, wonderful reader, Kim – aka Kimbopolo.  Kim is a Nurse Practitioner and she has a wonderful blog, The Travels of Kimbopolo.  I especially love her Good Deal Bus, GDB, a 2010 Roadtrek.  In fact, reading about her GDB excursions, has me rethinking the size RV I want.  I’m convinced, smaller is better.  ;)

Kim has an adorable Chihuahua mix, Doris, adopted in December 2009; and true to her sense of humor, she’s happily married to John, "adopted in September 1983".  LOL.  If you haven’t already met her, hop on over and check out her blog.  I highly recommend it.  I’m happy you’re here Kim!

NOTE: Kim recently posted a book giveaway, and I am happy to report that I am next in line to get the book pictured above.  She recently emailed to tell me it’s en route and I can’t wait to read it!  I am 4th in this wonderful tradition of passing it on, and when I have finished it, I will post the next giveaway here on my blog.  Stay tuned!  You could be the 5th recipient!

In Kim’s words, “It contains a soulful, deeply reflective account by a 50-something year-old woman who through-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 1994. It's one of the best books I've read about the Trail experience.” 

If you can’t wait, or want your own copy, you can order it online (here).

Blessings abound.  I hope you and yours continue to have a Safe, Happy, Healthy, Wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.  HugZ from Texas!
