It was a privilege to be a part of the Sydney Market Fresh Awards 2017 as a finalist for the best blogger story on a florist. I wrote a story about my local florist, Jackie’s Floral Gallery which made it into the finals. I didn't win this year’s awards but big congratulations to We Are Scout for taking out this year’s award and to my fellow finalist for their engaging stories. You can read all the stories on the Fresh Awards website. It was an awesome night at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney with delicious food and drinks catered for by Simon Fox and his team at Graze MCA and Culinary Edge. Although I didn’t take home the prize, I felt honoured to be recognised for my achievement in making it to the finals and to have my blog profile up on the big screen for an audience to see, which seems to validate what I do as a writer and a blogger.
