Thank You All! We Did It!
As I refreshed my Facebook screen for the umpteenth time this morning, I saw my profile picture next to an update from Whole Foods. It didn’t register at first, but as the realization hit me that I was the winner of Whole Food’s national food blogger contest to win a trip to Europe, I screamed and started running around the office, hugging everyone and jumping up and down! Here is that update:
And on the contest page, the win was confirmed!
Thank you to everyone who voted for me — especially those dedicated enough to try to vote every 24 hours! My votes totaled over 1800 in total over the 11 days of the contest thanks to each of you who voted.
Special thanks goes to Rebecca and the team at the Whole Foods Lamar store for allowing me to shoot my video on site, to Whole Foods Market for creating this contest and giving me the opportunity to try something new, to my colleague Rene, who shot and edited the video, and to the friends who let me borrow costumes, brainstormed ways to promote the contest, and are always supportive — no matter if I win or lose.
For those of you not on Facebook who haven’t seen the one-minute video, here it is:
And I know Adam thanks you as well since he is coming with me to Berlin, Amsterdam, Bruges, and Paris, BABY!Tags: contest, Europe, foodie fantasy, Whole Foods
