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.
