Ah, Thanksgiving. It’s already one of our favorite times of year, with the cooler weather, adorable sweaters, and holiday-themed coffee drinks. Not to mention the most delicious meal of the year! But Thanksgiving is about so much more than that -- it’s also a reminder to be appreciative of the greater things in life that we’re so, so happy to have. Check out what our Cutliners are most thankful for this year!
Nena - I’m thankful for so many things! Thankful for family and loved ones, thankful for finding an adorable apartment in the Sunset this summer (with windows...SF apartment horror stories are true), thankful for amazing technology that gets me way too excited, and so thankful to be a Cutliner every day!!
Shaq - There are no words to describe how grateful I am for this past year. Not only did I graduate college, but I also was able to speak at my graduation commencement with NBA star Damian Lillard. I then moved to the most amazing city to live with my best friend in the ENTIRE world. I also got a beautiful apartment in a great location in the Mission district and met a very handsome man who makes my days so much cheerier. And to top the cake - I got a job with Cutline and work with most incredible beings in the entire galaxy. 2015 has been a year of blessings and my cup has been overflowing with love and happiness.
Esther - I’m thankful to have a roof over my head, a warm bed and a handy husband who likes to cook and eat all the same delicious foods as me. Not only that, but a husband who makes me more curious in the world and a more thoughtful person. Thanks Kevy. I’m also thankful for my three furry babies who greet me enthusiastically every single day at the front door. And last by not least, I’m so thankful for my coworkers at Cutline who make me excited to come to work every day; Erin, Megan and Darah for believing in and encouraging each of our unique talents; and our amazing partners who make us smarter and better at our jobs.
Megan - In a world where there’s too much violence and hate, I’m thankful for every moment of peace and happiness, and hopeful for more of it.
Mishri - I’m thankful for this beautiful life, and for every teacher, family member, friend and colleague who has helped shape it.
Katie - I’m thankful for my amazing family always supporting me, my loving boyfriend, my adorable dog and all of my new colleagues that welcomed me with open arms when I started at Cutline this year.
Hyeri - I’m thankful for New York City and all of its quirks, like the delayed 6 train, BEC (that’s bacon-egg-cheese for all of you non-New Yorkers!) on a toasted bagel, and the tiny bodega around the corner from my apartment. This city inspires me every day to dream bigger and aim higher, and I’m grateful for all of my loved ones that I can share my dreams with.
Camille - I’m thankful every day for my incredible husband, family and friends, our military, wine, HGTV, double stuffed oreos, bulldogs and of course, my Cutline team! Thank you for creating an awesome culture and allowing us to work with some of the coolest clients in the biz!
Rachel - Among many other things, I’m thankful for random acts of kindness, laughter, my wonderful and off-the-charts supportive family, friends and colleagues, and the exceptionally beautiful city of San Francisco which I’m proud to call home.
Sarah - How much time do I have?! Thankful for the Trader Joe's wine store in Union Square, the short bits of sunshine we're still getting in NYC, Seamless for coming to my rescue on many a lazy night, my cell phone insurance, finding yet another awesome Craigslist roomie who's not cuckoo...! All jokes aside, the recent tragedies in Paris and Beirut are brutal reminders of how fragile the days are, when it's so easy to get caught up in them. I'm grateful to have started a new job this year that's continually rewarding, for my family, who are so forgiving when I forget to call or to let them know how much they mean to me, for my friends who are my support system and forever my second family, and for all the moments we remember to stop and take in all the good in life.
Jordan - I’m thankful for everyone I surround myself with. I’m truly grateful to be connected to such big hearts, gigantic smiles, warm hugs and strong love.
Shelby - I’m thankful for my family, my amazing friends, my dog, my health, good coffee, Instagram, music, living in beautiful San Francisco, working with awesome people, and way too many other things to list out!
Darah - I’m thankful that I have people to love and to feel loved. There is so much to be thankful for, but nothing matters more than the people that make us smile, laugh, hug, dance and love a little more.
