I interrupt your regularly scheduled programming so that I may take a moment to brag.....about myself. That's right. I don't often take big chances in life. I will take that leap if I'm pretty sure of the outcome, and this was one of those times.
I was talked into entering some photos at the Western Idaho Fair this year. Not something I would normally do, but hey, I thrive on competing and figured it was time to see how my stuff did. So I went down and entered my photos - I chose the professional category because I fit within the parameters. One photo that I knew would place was my bridge picture. I haven't met a person who doesn't like it. My brother had it framed in his house. My parents have it framed in their house. And I have a huge print of it framed in my house. It's awesome....if I do say so, myself. ;)
So when I went down yesterday to place my business card on my photos for some free advertising while the fair is going on, I noticed a shiny ribbon hanging from my lovely bridge picture. A red ribbon, signifying I had earned second place. Second place!!! Out of all the people in the state who entered their photos in the specific category, I won second! I stood there, pretty shocked....and yes, I cried. I think people were wondering if I was okay because it's just a photo, ya know. ;) So I snapped a quick picture with my phone and skipped off, back to work. Here is the phone pic......we're going back on Monday with Carter for family day, so I will take more formal pictures and post them later.
