Winner of A Signed Copy of The Threadbare Heart

Congratulations to Lori, the winner of a signed copy of The Threadbare Heart by Jennie Nash! Of course you all know how much I love The Gilmore Girls so Lori caught my interest with that and I love how she compared her own situation to the fictional family to show why she likes them so much.

"This was really tough. I wanted to say Vivi and Sidda from Ya-Ya Sisterhood, but they don't have a tremendous relationship. So I had to go with my standby. I love Lorelai and Rory from The Gilmore Girls. Their relationship is so natural and comfortable to them. I wish that I had that with my own mom. I guess ours is more like Lorelai and Emily, but in the later seasons, after some level on understanding is found. We get along for the most part, but it can turn really quickly. I think that my feelings towards Lorelai and Rory are because I find so much of myself in both of them that I can't help watching and loving them. "


Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers, mothers-to-be, and everyone who has ever mothered a child in some way!

  2. My winner also chose the Gilmore Girls (and so did my other entrant). I wonder how many entrants in this contest chose them...

  4. Oh boy -- Lorelai and Rory! Love them. While my mom and I aren't quite the witty wordsmiths that the Gilmore girls are, I'm thankful we have an easy, comfortable relationship. :) Enjoyed Lori's thoughts!
