Thank you, sincerely, for your votes that got me through to Challenge #2. I was so nervous checking the site on Friday. When I saw the little trophy next to my name and the Congratulations e-mail I was ecstatic! I shrieked and leapt around my office like a lotto winner, and by the end of the day my cheeks hurt from grinning so much! It really means a lot to me to have received your votes, so thank you again!
Voting for challenge 2 begins today (Monday, Sept. 27th) and will remain open until Thursday, Sept. 30th at 6 PM Pacific Time.

Christo, who did a great Morrocan lamb.
