i won a prize! BEST OF HOUZZ 2018 SERVICE. this past year and half or so of running my own business has been a roller coaster of excitement, learning, joy, shock, fear and fun. since i never did team sports (or any sports really) winning a prize is new to me. aside from a lovely pair of bar method socks i won about three years ago (and didn’t take out of the package for at least nine months because i had them proudly displayed on my bulletin board) this may well be my first prize. i am so thankful to my wonderful clients, family and friends for all of their support and encouragement. i’m sorry if this sounds like an oscar speech (it IS awards season after all) but i need to milk it a little since this may not happen again. you have to eat a special diet for the current bar method contest and i can’t do that, even for a great pair of socks!
