I love The Kentucky Derby. It’s a dream of mine to go experience this southern tradition known as The Run For The Roses that takes place the first Saturday in May. But until we can actually go, we do the next best thing–we prepare a traditional meal from either the Oaks or the Derby, and enjoy their traditional food and drinks. Recipes can all be found on-line. This makes for an awesome at home date too!
We are entering the home stretch of our own race of sorts, The Ultimate Blog Challenge. Much like the last stretch of a race, we are tired, but the finish line is in sight. This is not the time to give in to rest and relaxation; it’s time to push hard and give it our best.
So here I am. Seven more posts worth writing for the good of marriage. Seven posts that will each reveal a letter (highlighted in BOLD) Seven letters that when unscrambled, will spell one word. And seven chances for you to win a prize for finishing this challenge with us.
The prize? It is a signed copy of our book, Cherishing Us. If you already have a copy, we can send it to someone you know on your behalf.
Once you know the secret word, Send it to us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will select the winner by using random.org on Saturday, May 4th–the day of the 145th Kentucky Derby. (FYI, Race time is 6:50 ET.)
Let the Race begin… (Hint: Look for the words that are bold to get today’s letter)
This is our 24th post in the Ultimate Blog Challenge to post everyday in April.
