Give Thanks 2016

POSTED ON

Give Thanks   As is our tradition, we like to express our gratitude this time of year. This year the Brilliant Ink team is thankful for: Sara: I’m thankful for fiery feminists, deep friendships, family, baby giggles and the Gilmore Girls revival. Anna: I’m thankful for the 5 slices of pie I intend on eating tomorrow, 4 years working with this incredible team of inspiring women, my 3-legged dog Boomer, 2 fantastic little boys, and 1 wonderful husband. Kate: I’m grateful for my trusty running shoes, a phone charger and the smiley face emoji. They've been there when I needed them most! Jackie: I’m thankful for family (especially nieces and nephews), friends (especially the Brilliant Inkies), HGTV (especially Chip and Joanna Gaines), and microwaves. Ann: I have SO many things to be thankful for - two healthy, amazing kids, the opportunity to lead an incredible team of Brilliant Inkies, living in my favorite city in the world. But one thing that really stands out for me this year is how thankful I am to meet so many new and wonderful people through my work. I've recently been working to expand my network, and have realized how exciting it is to connect with like-minded people. Every person I meet teaches me something new, pushes me to think differently, and expands my worldview - and hopefully I do the same for them! I believe that by networking and helping each other, we all win. Particularly when the world feels like an uncertain and scary place, it’s comforting to know that there are so many awesome people out there! To all of our friends and families, Happy Thanksgiving!
