I received my 2007 Small Business Sucess Award tonight from the Small
Business Development Center.  It was AMAZING!  I'm not sure
what I expected, but this wasn't it.  There were 14 businesses
through the state that won the award.  The ceremony was at the
Heard Museum.  I had to speak...that was scary!  The food was
delicious...there was a native american flutist playing throughout the
mixer portion....we had professional photos taken...I met the vice
president of the Coconino Coummunity College (Kitty) who was really,
really nice...Rick came (yeah! and he brought fresh bagels!)....I got to
know my new business counselor...Annette--she's super cool...ooohhh,
and the bronze sculptures on the grounds were beautiful.  It was
such an honor to be chosen! 

Here are a couple of pictures....I'll have the statue at the store
for you all to see.  I even got a certificate from the  US
Congress.  How amazing is that? 

My dear husband Don & I.  I was dressed by my friend Audra
(I felt like I was at the Oscars)...if it's not yoga clothes, I don't
really know how to pick clothes out.  You can't see them, but she
had me wear these 2 inch 11:00 pm boy were my feet sore!114_2534 114_2533_1


Afterwards, we went to this very mod resturaunt called "FEZ".  I
had a really yummy pomegranatini.  The light fixtures were a
little weird.  I'll leave them to your imagination.


  1. I am so happy for you. This award is VERY well deserved. You are an
    awesome business owner and an even better friend. I consider myself
    lucky to still get to be a part of your business with you (even if it a
    very small part). Congratulations!

  2. Again, Congratulations my dearest friend! Nice to see your hard work
    finally getting recognized! Love the lights, and I see their
    significance based upon the other details you shared about FEZ.
