It’s harvest time! Many of us are getting ready to tuck into a bountiful Thanksgiving feast and spend some quality time with our nearest and dearest. It also tends to be a busy, demanding season, which can make it tempting to simply devour a mountain of mashed potatoes, while watching back-to-back football games. Before you know it, the occasion has passed–without much thought to actually giving thanks. So, this Thanksgiving, we’re turning the blog over to our team, for a mindful celebration of what we’re most grateful for. 

Here’s what we’re thankful for, now, and all year long:

“I’m thankful for the people around me, near and far – it’s been their kindness, generosity, support, and love, that they have been able to wholeheartedly provide, makes me who I am today.”
– Kristine, New Product Development Manager

“Besides being thankful for my health, I’m thankful for my family and friends–being surrounded by people that bring you love and joy every day is the most important thing in life. I’m also thankful for the people I work with every day and what we do. Standing for a brand that helps people live healthier lives is incredibly rewarding and fulfilling.”
– Lawrence, Vice President, Digital and Brand Marketing
