Last night was such a blast, I want to thank everyone who came out to support not only me but all of the new nine that are currently hanging on the wall! It was a great crowd of people and I had so much fun with my family and friends... so thanks everyone!
So I brought my camera because I SWORE I was going to document it this year but Miss Amanda Harris Herzberger stripped me of my D3 and did the honors! Which was kind of nice for me to just focus on the people's reactions as they saw themselves being unveiled... ends up I couldn't really see but Amanda did a great job of catching them for me, so thanks honey!!!
There were people asking where they can buy more copies of their prints- follow this link and sign up, they should all be up by Friday from the past four years!
Here are some highlights from the night!
My right hand gal Robin Dini and the illustrious Robert Norman, MD... pre-unveiling
Miss Krystyle double fisting it with not one but TWO Canons!
Mike has stepped over to the Canon dark side, momentarily.... it's OK he had some cocktails, he made a mistake. He is forgiven! ;)
I am clearly laughing at something Robert Norman just said!
My big guy Jack Bibbs
Jack just loves to make fart noises and was demonstrating his skill
During the unveiling Jack couldn't tell me enough that 'this is SO BORING Mom!' Like a thousand times! Thanks big guy! It was his and Georgie's first year coming... and maybe their last! ;)
