One of the perks that has come along since starting Phickles is being invited to speak at or serve people at some really awesome events – like this one! My husband and I were set up at Club Magnolia in Augusta during the Masters Golf Tournament where we mingled and served patrons our pickles. The various bars and restaurants set up at Club Magnolia used our pickles in many different dishes and drinks. We had a blast!
This might be the most MasterPHul memory ever! The day…at the Masters Golf Tournament 6 years ago… when a Phickle Chickle fan asked Annika Sorenstam to take his picture with me! Everyone around was giggling at the scene… I mean…ANNIKA is way more of a superstar than me. Haha!!!! She said that had never happened to her before- but she was a good sport about it. 😍 Love my life!!!
My first memory of Annika was seeing her on the David Letterman Show. She read the ‘Top Ten’ list for the show – remember those lists?! That was in 2008 …the same year the recession caused my family quite a pickle which led to me selling pickles off my front porch! The rest is quite a PHUN history!
Remembering this memory reminds me to be thankful for all God has done in my life – especially since 2008. If you’re going through your own personal financial struggle – have faith. God won’t allow your circumstance to keep you from His blessing and purpose for your life – just as I know He catches me every time I slip! He can turn the darkest times around for good and our struggles and hardships are not a waste of our time or His. Pay attention, Friends! God is here with us and whatever we face… if we let go and let God have a hand in our day-to-day plans… whatever comes our way will turn out to be good and shine light and glorify our Heavenly Father.
“Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands…”
Drive for show and Put for dough, y’all!
