Thursday at work is Quarterly Briefing where associated at Bath and Body Works gets the low-down on how sales are performing ect with the brand. They also hand out awards to associates who perform well - called the Reflection Award. Contracted people cant go - me, Im a contract freelance graphic designer - for the past 3 years. No sweat for me not being able to go, it gives me more time to work!
Well we had our dept touchbase that afternoon and what a surprise! The directors and my senior designer (Julie) decided to create a "Contractor Reflection Award" and I was the 1st reciepant! It was soooo sweet. Julie had a speech talking about what I do to contribute, my dedication, blah blah blah (not to mention organize birthday parties for my co-workers). I got flowers, a giftcard to Easton mall and cupcakes. Brenda (my art director) teared up a little which made me. Oh and I got an ugly tiara thingy.
It was so special that they thought about doing that for me. I love what I do and I guess they see that.
PLUS today I get home and Danny brought me sunflowers! He is starting to spoil me with all these flowers lately but Im fine with that!
