weekend recap

Thanks for all the birthday wishes on Friday! I had a wonderful weekend which started off absolutely perfectly:

Since entering my work in Expressions for the first time eight years ago, I've won several Student Awards and Purchase Awards, but I've never won anything in the actual Photography category. Well, on Friday I won Second Place in Photography for Wizarding World! I can't tell you how surprised and how happy I was! It felt so good to finally win after all those years...

And so the rest of the weekend continued to be wonderful... the weather was perfect (sunny and in the 90s), I ate delicious food and delicious cake (white layer cake with blackberry buttercream), I bought some spice jars and storage boxes at IKEA (I'm obsessed), and, best of all, I got to spend time with my family (particularly my brother and sister whom I rarely see)!

How was your weekend?
