Mother’s Day Contest (Pssst…it’s our first ever!)

by | Mar 30, 2018

As you might know, Mother’s Day is a very special day at Tillie Moon. Tillie, our Mom and Grammy, was part of the inspiration for our blog and on Mother’s Day more than most days we remember her and try to honor her. Our blog’s birthday is also on Mother’s Day in tribute to her.

For this coming Mother’s Day we are going to do two things we have never done before on the blog. We are hosting a contest AND the winner will also be our first guest blogger!

We are asking for YOUR stories about your Mom and what she means to you (food and delicious life tie-ins encouraged, but not required!). We will then choose the winning story to post on our blog the week of Mother’s Day.

The winner of the contest and lucky guest blogger will receive a free copy of Memoirs of a Delicious Life, with a personalized inscription, and free shipping to anywhere in the United States as their prize (to be a gift to themselves or for anyone they choose) arriving in time for Mother’s Day.

The Tillie Moon gals will share their own Mother’s Day posts as well. Our three posts and the guest post will all pay homage to our moms and all moms. The week of May 6 to 13 will be filled with posts about cherishing our moms or their memories; we hope you will enjoy it!

I am Judy and David’s daughter and Mel and Tillie’s and Fred and Luella’s granddaughter. I am the beaches and coast, lakes and steams and mountains of California. California is in my heart and soul, where I grew up, and it will always feel like home. My family and my oldest, cherished friends are there and dotted around the West. But, I am also downtown Chicago where I walked to work in knee-high snow and the shores of Lake Michigan where my husband and I strolled pulling my son behind us in his red wagon so he could learn to pump a swing and build sandcastles at the playground on our local beach.Read More
