Vivid Image Team Shares Their Thoughts on Thanksgiving

With the Thanksgiving holiday next week, we thought you’d like hearing from our staff on some of the things for which they are most thankful. We hope you enjoy getting to know the unique personalities of our staff; the team who is very thankful for YOU.

After working at Vivid Image, I now have an appreciation for…

“The varied abilities of our customers and how a kind word of encouragement can make a world of difference.” Deanna

“People who enjoy managing the details.” Steve

“Our excellent IT staff.” Margaret

“Teamwork! So many things simply cannot be done by one person, or at least not done well!” Kori

Some of the technological advances I’m most thankful for are…

“The wireless router; while older than my first generation iPad, it is still the best advance in my book. Think how confined we’d be if we had to plug in every device into the wall.” Michelle

“Running water, electricity, modern medicine, and automobiles. I know these aren’t new, but where would we be without them. I’d hate to take a horse and buggy ride for two days to get 60 miles down the road.” Beth

“Spellcheck and cell phones” Sarah M

“Software developed with the idea in mind that other developers may want additional and different functionality.” Mat

“Computers, email and Internet…I’m pretty sure I’d be lost if any of the three are not functioning! In addition, Remote Car Start and Online Banking and Bill Pay are essentials.” Sarah S

“Smart phones with syncing calendars, grocery lists, and to-do lists!” Jackie

“A fast Internet connection and endless iPod apps for my daughter.” Margaret

The last thing I was sincerely thanked for was…

“My son for taking him out for dinner for his birthday” Barb

“For helping with fundraising and promoting a local early childhood organization.” Jackie

“A good @$$ kicking in one of my Small Group Personal Training sessions” Sarah S

“Dinner at Tokyo Grill which I took some of my family to on Saturday.” Mat

“The Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti I brought to the office.” Kori

The last person I sincerely thanked was…

“My best friend Marlon…Last week we went to a movie and the ending just made me think how important he and the rest of my friends are in my life. They always have my back and are there to give me a boost (or kick) when I need it.” Karlie

“Hank, the car salesman, for his patience as I slowly re-familiarized myself with driving a manual.” Eric

“Marc Vaillancourt for helping me dream bigger.” Steve

“My child’s teacher for going the extra mile to ensure that he was understanding the lessons of the week.” Sarah M

What I’m looking forward to the most over the Thanksgiving Holiday is…

“My mother-in-law’s cooking. She’s an amazing cook and it will be fun to have our foreign exchange daughter try so many American traditional dishes and see what she thinks.” Beth

“Hunting for the perfect Christmas tree that will fit in our house with my family. My husband sometimes overestimates the size of our living room, and I feel like the Christmas Vacation movie is coming true in our house when Clark cuts open the Christmas tree and it is way too big.” Deanna

“Time with my family and my sister-in-law’s cooking.” Kori

“Spending time with family.” Sarah M

“Uninterrupted time to geek out at home” Mat

“Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Love getting the family together for a great meal, and not having the added pressure of decorating and gifts that comes with Christmas. Although I love Christmas too!” Sarah S

“Wine, cheese, relaxing with family, and a long weekend.” Jackie

“Time with my kids” Steve

“Spending the evening with my family playing games and grazing on wonderful food.” Barb

“A long weekend off to spend with my family and friends and my very first Ugly Sweater Party!” Michelle

“Turkey, mashed potatoes & gravy, and a nap.” Eric

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us to you!
