The 2015 Joshby Awards — WINNERS!

joshbybanner

The 2015 Joshby Awards are coming to an end — it’s been quite the week. It’s been a fun week. I’ve been able to honor and celebrate the many people in my life — family and friends. On Tuesday I shared the nominees for the Friends category then, yesterday, I shared the nominees and winners of the Family category.

Today is all about the winners for the Friends category. I will be announcing the result of the Running category later this afternoon — so make sure to stay tuned for that.

But, I just want to reiterate how thankful I am for EVERYONE in my life. In my eyes a nomination is practically a winner. Then again — just having YOU in my life is a winner. I don’t say that lightly, because I take every relationship, friendship and encounter with others as an opportunity to learn and grow. We all have something to share and teach — and I want to listen and grow.

Anyways — here are the 2015 Joshby Friend winners!
