Okay, so I’m legit

If you happen to be connected with my on Facebook, about a month ago you might’ve seen a post where I mentioned that my supervisor named me the Speaking on Business employee of the year during a luncheon we held.

Since we’re a department of two (her and me), I thought it was really cool, but not something to take too seriously. I was touched by the gesture because it always feels nice to be appreciated. And after my status update, I thought that was all there was to it.

Nope, I was wrong. And here’s the proof:


Yes, we had an entire luncheon with a few close friends from the office (as an includer I pretty much wanted to invite almost everyone on the floor, but we do have budgets to consider, so it was just a few people), complete with a lovely lunch, celebratory cake and this plaque. I didn’t expect the plaque, believe me. Again, I think it’s really cool, and it was so kind of her to do that for me. Pictures from the luncheon:


We waited a few weeks after the fact so it could be a congratulations/birthday lunch. So here’s my congratabirthday cake with large candles. Aren’t they cool? It tasted great too, in case you’re wondering. I enjoyed sharing it with my family last weekend.


Finally, the woman who made this all possible, my supervisor, Chris. She’s been my supervisor for a year and a half now and my work experience has improved dramatically in that time. Where once I felt trapped, bored and that I was getting nowhere fast, now I feel appreciated, valued and that I am a talent. So, for that I thank you, Chris, and promise to always do my best to live up to the trust you place in me.
