This blog is dedicated to Kimberly Ponsky (Shilo)…
Many of us probably don’t like interacting with our bosses on a daily basis, however today is the day we recognize them for all that they do. Just to give you a quick fact on the day, Boss’s Day was officially announced in 1962 by Otto Kerner, the governor of Illinois. Today is meant for you to show your appreciation for your boss and thank them…so go do it! Ok, it’s Saturday, so maybe give a belated thank you on Monday :)
As I have said before, Kim doesn’t like the word BOSS. That in of itself describes her as my “boss”. She sees us more as friends who have a working relationship with one another. I guess I would say the same thing too. I’m not the type of person of who likes to get all dazzled up for work. I mean, I like to look nice but a suit and a pair of heels are left for interviews in my book. I’m also not the type of employee that likes to sit behind a desk behind a 4 sided, grey cubicle with no windows (who does?) I know that the dress code and environment that I just described does exist for many of you in the working world and I’M SOOO SORRY! Just to rub it in…on an average day at the studio, I get to wear a comfortable pair of jeans, cute top, cool boots or sometimes in the winter, which is just around the corner, I get to pull out my favorite pair of Uggs. I walk into a warm and inviting space, where although I don’t have windows, I do have a big space to work in with a Macbook Pro on a fun IKEA desk and I can listen to Pandora (without headphones!) and have lunch from Presti’s while editing photos :) If I need to take a day or two off last minute, not a problem. Need to come in late, not a problem either. Oh and she also brings me delicious treats, like Prestis’ famous doughnuts…yummm! The only reason I get to do or have those things is because of Kim.
For those of you who don’t know Kim, let me tell you a little about her.
nice, funny, outgoing, caring, charismatic, smart, personable, considerate, ambitious, flexible, generous, honest, optimistic, patient, kind, loving, encouraging, forgiving, talented, appreciative, energetic, confident, understanding, respectful, fashionable, and beautiful from the inside out.
Thank you Kim for all that you do and for just being you! and for the sake of the holiday, Happy Boss’s Day!
Kim!!! Can I come work for you!! So sweet you are, Michelle. Love your writing!
