There is so much to be thankful for this time of year (and all year). As a team we are thankful for all of you! We work with the most amazing clients, which is something not all businesses can say. Our clients have turned into friends; friends that inspire and motivate us daily and for that we are truly grateful.

 

REBECCA

“The past few years have been some of tremendous growth. I opened the studio, watched the neighborhood around my building transform and thrive, and have expanded my business to create more custom jewelry and work directly with clients. This year, I am most thankful for my team around me that has allowed me to get to this place. I am reaching a point in my life that I have the time to be as creative as I want to be, and focus more on the charities and community work that my heart has longed to do! Without a strong team behind me, it is so easy to get bogged down in the minutia of running a business, and they are giving me the freedom and gift of time. Thank you RLD Team!!”

PETE

“Life is good. There are so many things that I am thankful for: squirrels, my brother Jack, fuzzy blankets, my daily dog massages, and Rachael Ray dog treats. But all of these things pale in comparison to evenings with my mom, my squeaky ball, and the saltwater pool that she built me. Every night, my mom throws my squeaky ball as many times as I want into my custom, 8” deep pool (I am a little afraid of deep water, so she had it built to my specs) and I go completely nuts. My brother, Jack, couldn’t care less about the squeaky ball, but what does he know?! I just think it’s the best. There is no place I’d rather be than my backyard, and I am so thankful to have it!”

 

HANNAH

“There is so much to be thankful this year, where do I begin? On October 27th, I married the love of my life, Alexander, in front of my family and friends. This year in particular, I am so thankful to have a supportive, intelligent, kind, and funny partner to share this life with. Getting married has also put into perspective how important my circle of family and friends are to my happiness and success in life. So overall, if I have to narrow my list – it’s the people (and pets) in my life that lift me up and make life so worthwhile – that I am most thankful for this year.”

 

 

STACIE

“I am thankful for joy! I have an amazingly positive and loving family, a husband who makes me laugh and feel cherished, friends who rejoice with me, and coworkers who have me looking forward to coming to work every day. Even with all this, life can be messy, scary and hard; but I give thanks for a joy that endures the suffering and a hope in something much larger than myself. Plus I have a really cute pup.”

 

KRISTIN

“As I focus on what I am most thankful for, it is overwhelmingly my husband Joe. This has been one of the hardest years of my life and Joe still brought a smile to my face every day. I am thankful for his unconditional love and support, his sense of humor, how he loves our pup and when gives me “mom hugs” when I am missing my family that is so far away. He makes me excited about the future and growing old together. I couldn’t ask for anything more.”
