It’s that time of year again – the All Points PR team is taking a moment to reflect on what we’re thankful for this holiday season. Whether personal or professional, our team has plenty of things to give thanks for. Check it out below.
Mackenzie: I’m thankful for the support of family and friends and the gift of a strong intuition.
Lauren: I’m thankful for the journey.
Sydney: I’m thankful for my beautiful daughter, always supportive husband and of course my cuddly pup.
Gautier: I’m thankful for the All Points team. We’re a fun, smart bunch who are dedicated to supporting clients and each other!
Amanda: I’m thankful for my incredibly supportive loved ones who are always there for me.
Bailey: I’m thankful to have a great support system — whether it’s my awesome colleagues or my family, I’m lucky to be surrounded by people who encourage me to rise to the occasion every day.
Kate: I’m feeling especially thankful for not just my health but also the health of my friends and loved ones. This includes the health of my two very old 18-year-old cats, which I am very thankful are still around for yet another Thanksgiving!
Cole: Besides my family and friends, I’m thankful for getting to work with an amazing group of people here at All Points (who are friends now too)! Even if I’m having a bad day, I know that I’m bound to smile at some point because of the positive vibes sent out by our team. Big shout out to Alex, Allie, Syd and even stepmom Bailey on Pod 2 for always being supportive and making the workweek easier to handle.
Marin: I’m thankful that I recently moved closer to family and get to reconnect and spend more time with them after four years in Iowa. I’m especially grateful that I’m able to spend this year with my sister before she goes off to college next year. She may borrow (and “forget” to return) all of my shoes, but I still love eating junk food and watching bad reality TV with her!
Gillian: I’m thankful for the opportunity to learn new skills this year, like how to grow mushrooms and learning to play hockey. And, I’m thankful for my sweet, loving family and friends who are always supportive of my new hobbies, no matter how unexpected.
Tracey: I’m thankful for my husband (we got married this year!), moving back to Lake Forest to be closer to my family, starting a new job and, of course, our amazing pup Bayley. Oh, and getting to enjoy Chicago-style pizza again!
Spencer: I’m thankful for long-sleeve, button-down flannel shirts. They’re a staple in my wardrobe and are perfect for when the office gets a little chilly.
Rachel: I’m thankful for family and being able to catch up during the holidays after being apart for so long.
Alex S: I’m thankful for my colleagues here at All Points — and for having a team that can work out/run together, but can also eat lots of bundt cake and Cafe Zupas together too!
Nicole: I’m thankful to have so many creative and supportive friends surrounding me. We push each other to do better and occasionally convince each other to make impulsive purchases, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Katie: I’m thankful for my friends, family, health and awesome team at APPR!
Annie: I’m thankful for living in Chicago – the city has provided me with an abundance of fun activities and restaurants to try, close proximity to family and friends, plenty of professional development opportunities, passionate sports teams and snowy winters that make me appreciate beautiful Chicago summers even more!
Mia: I’m thankful to be participating in two Thanksgiving celebrations with my family where I’ll get to indulge in endless mashed potatoes and stuffing all day long.
Jessica: I’m thankful for my supportive family and the opportunities I’ve been given.
Alex H: I’m thankful for my family, friends and, most importantly, Harry Styles.
Meredith: I’m always thankful for the support of my family and friends — including my coworkers who have become great friends!
Jamie: I’m thankful for the opportunities that I have to experience new adventures, both personally with my family and professionally with the APPR family. I’m grateful for the journey.
Jonathan: I’m thankful to have the best parents in the world, and to have a brother that I can call my best friend. I’m thankful to have friends from around the country that I can also call my family. I’m also thankful for the whole All Points PR team for providing me with the opportunity to begin my career.
Maddy: My family has been so supportive, and I’m thankful for all the help that they have given me. This season, I’m thankful for getting to spend this holiday with them.
Allie: I’m thankful for spending time with my loved ones this holiday season and for snowboarding season to be back!
