First Ever Tell Me Tuesday

With all of my recent giveaways in mind, I put this question to some of my writer friends:

What's the best and/or most fun thing you've ever won?

I got some great answers, including this one from author Carrie Turansky...

"The best thing I’ve ever won was a four-day African Safari in the Massai Mara, Kenya. The year our family were missionaries in Kenya, I entered a contest at the grocery store in Nairobi and we won! The trip was for two, but we added on so we could take our five kids with us. We stayed in fun luxury safari tents and took two drives each day to see all the animals . . . lions, zebras, giraffes, monkeys, gazelles, warthogs, ostrich, hips, and amazing birds. What a fun blessing!"

I'd say that sounds like one amazing win, and it couldn't have happened to a lovelier family.

Speaking of giveaways, Carrie is having a great one this month herself. Visit her blog for more info.

Finally, be sure to check out her latest book, Refuge at Highland Hall, and the rest of her popular Edwardian Brides Series:


So, what's the best thing you've ever won? Let us know in the Comments, below.


  1. I think my Kindle Fire is the best thing I have won. It gets used every day and is a blessing.

  2. I won a doll house when I was younger. I don't win often but enjoy winning books since I love to read. Blessings!

  3. Awesome prizes, both the Kindle Fire and the doll house. It's so much fun to win stuff, especially when it's something you really wanted. :)

  4. Thanks for letting me share this fun memory! : )
