One evening of two years ago (Nov 2015) I found Julia M. Usher’s videos and discovered royal icing to decorate cookies. That evening I kept watching the series of her cookie decorating videos and the next days I caught up with all of them. I had so much to learn! I then found out Cookie Connection and signed up: that was the beginning of my cookie journey. I couldn’t have imagined to start writing my own tutorials for the site one year later. Surely I couldn’t have never imagined that two years later, “the same lady in the video” would have sent me a Milestone Award as a recognition for my contribution to her site. . . nor to receive it in Dubai, where I am living at the moment! That’s why I thought I’d take a picture of this beautiful crystal vase framed in “the Dubai Frame”, which happens to be located nearby the post office. This building, 150m tall, soon to become another landmark of this city, opened last January when I got to know about this recognition.

Thank you so much @Julia M. Usher, it means a lot to me.

It's amazing, Manu! Congratulations again! And that building is amazing too, I thought it was a framed mirror or something...

Thank you, Zara @carouselselsel !

Although I have this crystal vase with me the whole day (I keep moving it between living-room, kitchen and bedroom!😊) I really wanted to take a meaningful picture to look back at one day. The Dubai Frame is a huge building and it wasn’t easy to fit everything in this picture. I had to lift the vase, lean it toward the camera and hold it still. . . and believe me it is heavy! In person The vase is way bigger than how it looks in the picture (tricks of perspective!). I am happy!

Oh, I love the pic! And, I know, that vase is HUGE - I may have to downsize for future Milestone winners, because I imagine it is hard to fit in most homes!  Enjoy it; you sure do deserve it. I am so honored and thrilled to have you continuing to contribute to the site as marvelously as you do!

Thank you, once again @Julia M. Usher! It has been very easy to find a place for it, but I kept moving it from room to room because I was so happy that wanted to have it in sight every minute! I am truly enjoying it!
