    Kiawah Resort

    I went to Kiawah Resort, SC almost three summers ago with my family and cousins. One night we took pictures along the beach and I got wonderful results. Last April in their brochure they send bi-annually, they asked if anyone had pictures from their vacation there. That they would likely use them in their upcoming brochure. So I sent several of our photos into them. I heard from them a few days later and they loved one that I sent. They have since used it on not only their brochure but they made a huge postcard from it. Whenever a resort guests returns home a week later they receive our postcard inviting them back.
    Today I went to their site. It's been updated. Guess who's picture is on the front page? MINE! Check it out here: Kiawah Resort It's the one of the kids facing the beach. My two girls are on the left side. *Sigh* my how they've grown.
    Just wanted to toot my own horn. TFL!
