Rhythm & Roots Photo Competition Winners!!!

Last night was GREAT!!!! My super awesome friend Cheri talked me into entering the Rhythm and Roots Festival's Annual Photo Competition and I never dreamed that out of all of those entries that I would get a ribbon for one of my photos. I knew Cheri would because she is very talented and has a great eye for photographic opportunities. Cheri and I met for the reception last night and we browsed through all of the amazing photos and then we spotted one of mine with a 3rd place ribbon on it. I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT!!!! I was so excited! Then when we wandered into the back room where they were serving refreshments we saw the Blue Ribbon winning photos and there it was...my friend Cheri had done it! So she took home a blue ribbon in the monochrome category and I took home a 3rd place ribbon in the Best of Bristol category. It was a great night for 2 amateur photographers and friends.


Summertime Flew By

Wow! Where did the summer go? We have been so busy with remodeling the house next door that before I blinked the summer is now gone. And I have some catching up to do on this blog. Hmmm...where to start? Ok...we've enjoyed spending time downtown this year with family and friends. Love the concerts and Border Bash and can't wait for the Rhythm and Roots this weekend. My friend Cheri and I are walking in the 2 mile walk in the morning then going to have a blast downtown for the rest of the day and night on Saturday. I love it! My neice Taylor turned 16 years old and got a really sweet Toyota Avalon! My neice Courtney made head cheerleader! The company picnic was this past weekend...we had a blast...Pat K. took his son Emory and we took Noah...the kids have a blast at this thing and so do the parents. I even won some money this time...woot! Woot! Also Noah has become a huge Dukes fan and on the way to the picnic his uncle Brian took him to a car show and he got to see the General Lee up close and personal. He was in awe!
