Photographic Evidence

Not sure how I ended up with two weeks between posts (unless I think back over the crazy busy that has been the last two weeks, and then I go, "Oh, yeah.").

When I wrote about the Whitney gala last time, I didn't have any pictures yet. Here are a few. I'd planned to post pictures when I had more, since flashes were all over the place, and I know there are more out there I don't have access to right now, but it's been long enough, so here's what I have.

First, the award itself. It's lying flat here, but it stands up and opens and closes like a real book:


Isn't it purdy?

Below: Before the gala, with critique group member (and 2-time Whitney winner) Heather Moore along with novelist and Deseret Book editor Lisa Mangum. We thought the red theme would be fun for a picture.


Tristi Pinkston and Danyelle Ferguson presented the award to me. Here I am, right after I got onto the stage, with Tristi, hugger extraordinaire:


The pics above and below were taken by dear friend Kimberly. I won't post the one where I'm totally blubbering, but you can tell here that I was emotional.

(No worries; these were happy tears.)


After the gala, with the amazing THREE-time Whitney winner, Stephanie Black. You can just make out the gold box that has the award inside:


I'll be back to my regular posting schedule soon, including Word Nerd Wednesday and other fun stuff.

Promise!
