The night had finally arrived and I was pretty calm… the Limo arrived and we all made our way in, it is very difficult to enter a limo and even more getting out 🙂 We had such a great time traveling in style. they offered cocktails and hors D’oeuvres, we chatted with folks, then the lights dimmed and we were invited to enter the Theater!
All was going well till they started calling the names of all the fine folks who were finalists for Photographer of the Year… “please stand when your name is called” David, Dale, Linda, Joe and Tess, he paused, opened the envelope and uttered the words “Linda Ford, Linda’s Lenses Photography!” OMG I was shaking like a leaf and yes, for those of you who know me, I cried 🙂 If only I could remember what I said!
The venue was excellent, and all along we were wondering where they would serve a couple 100 folks a sit down dinner, well to our surprise on the stage, quite a spectacular job was done by CBC Magazine, Playhouse Square and A Taste of Excellence for the delicious food that they had prepared and an awesome event!
Thank you to all my colleagues, friends and family who voted for me. It is truly an honor!
Check out the fun that was had by one and all…
