At long last, I’m thrilled to announce the winners of the “I love this Country” Working Mother photo contest – the theme of this summer was “Disconnect to Reconnect,” and hotel guests and WM readers who submitted pictures of their family “disconnecting and reconnecting” at a Country Inns & Suites By Carlson property were eligible to win some fantastic prizes. 

Read on to enjoy the winning submissions:

Third prize goes to Lauren Cenac, photo taken at our Merridian, MS property.

Why does she love this Country?  “I Love this Country because there is never a dull moment!”
Caption: “Where’s Gusley??!! There he is on the luggage cart!!”

Second Prize goes to Linda Henderson, photo taken at our Houston, TX property.

Why does she love this Country? “I Love this Country because it’s just one big kick after another!”

Caption: “Mr. Energy doing some karate moves before the long ride home.”

And last but certainly not least (drumroll, please….), our GRAND PRIZE winner comes to us all the way from India — Jaipur, India, to be exact– by Deepti Uppaladadium. 

Why does Deepti love this Country? “I love this country.. Made us feel at home, back at home!”
Caption: “In the picture, my two daughters are posing on a rikshaw-cycle, in front of the [Country Inns & Suites by Carlson hotel]…, where we stayed during our last trip to Jaipur (INDIA). We had the time of our life.. Lovely staff, Wonderful service & Awesome food! My family still has the memories fresh from then…  So badly looking forward to go back there again… That’s one place we felt as though we never left the Country… made us feel at home ;-)

Have a wonderful weekend, wherever your travels may take you.

I love this Country,
