It’s Sunday morning, and soon I will be celebrating the last Christmas from 2014 with Mike’s family. It sounds a bit crazy, but you gotta do what you gotta do to get the whole family together.
It’s a funny thing, but my proudest moments overlap with my favorite memories of 2014. Even so, I’m going to start from the beginning of 2014 to show you some of the best moments.
March 2014: Attaining my first “real” job.
After a long stint of underemployment, late March finally brought a secure position in St. Louis. It was the first step taken to Mike and I finally being able to build our lives together, and it came with a pay increase.
May 2014: Having my own place again.
Along with underemployment came crashing on a friend’s couch for seven months. In late May, I was finally able to move to St. Louis into an apartment of my own (I share it with Mike). It seemed as though things were finally moving in a positive direction for us.
Sept 2014: First big PR moment of my career.
In September, I pitched a reporter to cover my company and she agreed. Sometime in Spring 2015, Entrepreneur magazine will publish an article about my company, and it will be AWESOME.
October 2014: Second big PR moment of my career.
Not long after my first PR success, I pitched a New York Times reporter about how our company was using content marketing, and they decided to include us in a story. That story was published in late December. For me, it’s a huge deal. For others… Not so much.
December 2014: Getting engaged to my best friend
On December 26, Mike asked me to officially spend the rest of my life with him. It was something I had wanted for a long time, but had patiently been waiting for Mike to feel ready. He made it a surprise, and everything about that moment was wonderful.
There you have it! Those are my proudest moments of 2014. I cannot wait to see what 2015 has in store, but I know it’s going to be amazing. What were your proudest moments of last year?
