Abundant Harvest – Reaping benefits from seeds sown

May I blow my own horn?  I recently was honored to receive an award from ASID's Awards of Excellence competition.  I won First Place for Residential Kitchens under 200 sf!    This is the 2nd year in a row that I have won a first place designation, last year for Bathrooms  under 80 sf, and previous to that, a first place award for Kitchens under 150 sf.

Contests give you the pat on the back, saying that you are a ‘good’ designer.  Contests that are judged by your peers, as in the ASID Awards of Excellence, are doubly welcome.   It seems abundantly clear that the time and effort to research and specialize in Kitchens & Baths have been well worth the effort.  The seeds of learning have grown into a wealth of knowledge that benefit all my clients.

And the basket of pears?  A person, ten years ago, planted fruit trees.  For ten years, the orchard was left untended.  I looked up (many of you know that I only look straight ahead) and saw a tree with yellow fruit on it.   ‘Wow, we have a lemon tree!’ then immediately realized that lemon trees probably don’t grow in the pacific northwest, ‘or round yellow apples?’  Turns out to be the sweetest fruit I have ever tasted, Asian pears.  Looking up again, this time to the right, I found yet another fruit tree, this one bearing large ‘regular’ pears.

 I have to give blessings to this unknown person that lovingly sowed the seeds of this orchard, an orchard that is now giving us an Abundant Harvest.  THANK YOU
