Holiday

Saying Thanks This Thanksgiving

We’re well into November, and as the weather cools down, the holiday gift guides publish and the baked goods make their grand entrance, we’ve been reflecting on the past year. 2018, you’ve been an exciting year of opportunity and new beginnings. As we make our way into Thanksgiving, we’re taking a moment to share what we’re most grateful for this year.

My health and the health of my loved ones, that strong inner power we call resilience, the people around me who share their love, inspiration and knowledge with me everyday, and libraries. PS - if you share my love for libraries, you can donate to the Sunnyvale public library or find a local library near you! --Mishri

I am incredibly thankful for my Mom. I’m thankful for her love, support and advice. She means the world to me and I am extra thankful I get to spend this Thanksgiving with her. --Katie

I’m grateful for my family, which officially got a lot bigger after getting married this summer.  I’m thankful for all of the love and extreme thoughtfulness wrapped around me. I’m also feeling blessed to reflect on travels to new places over the last year, and to start new adventures on the West Coast! --Kyra

This year and every year I'm thankful for my entire family. This year I'm especially grateful for my mom, who is driving up to San Francisco from southern California with my pup so I won't be alone for Thanksgiving. (Important to note that she is driving the seven hours because my dog is 14 years old and wouldn't be able to handle a flight. She didn't want me to spend the holiday without my fur child.) --Bree

I’m most thankful for my family, their health and happiness! It’s the most important thing in the world to me and I couldn’t ask for anything more. --Camille

I’m of course the most thankful for the people in my life, both family and friends alike. But I’m also thankful for the opportunities I’ve been given to explore the world - it’s something I’ll never take for granted and am confident will keep me young forever. --Chloe

At a time when there's so much anger and divisiveness in the world, I’m grateful for moments of kindness and peace, for friends and family, for the laughter of my kids, even for snow in November! And every day, I come to work grateful for the smart, funny, kind souls who make up our fierce Cutline crew. --Megan

I’m constantly thankful for the health and happiness of my family and friends. Knowing they’re safe and sound keeps me sane each and every day. --Elizabeth

In the midst of devastating California wildfires, I’m grateful for the firefighters, first responders and volunteers who are working 24 hours a day, putting their lives at risk to help others. I’m also extremely thankful for my health, which allows me to do the things that I love every day. --Carrie

A lot of my family members have been affected by the California wildfires, so this year in particular, I’m grateful for the health and happiness of my family. I’m thankful we’re able to spend this holiday together. --Courtney

I’m thankful for the health, love and support from my incredible family and friends. I am who I am, because of them. I’m thankful to have a career I’m proud of, and to work alongside talented, hard-working and fun colleagues and clients. I’m thankful I get to call San Francisco, one of the most beautiful cities, home. I’m thankful I live in a place where I don’t fear for the ongoing safety of myself or my loved ones. And, like my dad always says, I’m thankful I woke up today. --Vineetha

I struggled to figure out how to start my contribution to this post. Not because I’m not sure what I’m thankful for, but because -- even though it’s been an incredibly hard year on a lot of levels -- there’s so much to be thankful for that I don’t even know where to begin. To start, my family and friends and friends who are family. The extraordinarily smart, kind and funny people I work with every day, both Cutliners and clients. My career. My fur babies, who remind me every day what unconditional love means. The roof over my head. Clean water. Strangers who help others with random acts of kindness. The military and first responders who keep us all safe. And every single breath I take. --Erin
