Last Friday, our entire team sat down together over a warm, delicious Thanksgiving potluck meal. Everyone brought a little something and it turned out to be a full-on feast. We recently had two new employees join our team so this was also a great time to get to know them better.
The cool thing about our agency is that aside from our actual work, we enjoy each other’s company. Everyone goes to lunch with everyone. We have game nights. We make bets on football games. We pick each other up when someone’s car has stalled. We make each other laugh with a relationship ends. We all care for each other as family would. Having that type of relationship with co-workers only makes our work stronger and I know that we wouldn’t trade it for anything.
So, with Thanksgiving less than 12 hours away, we all decided to share what we are thankful for this year.
Amanda (social media specialist)
I made a big transition this year when I moved to OKC and left my friends and life back in Nashville. I’m thankful for the opportunities OKC has given me. Moving 10 hours from home can be tough, but I was offered an incredible job at liquidfish. I’m thankful to have good co-workers who are inviting, accepting and enjoy having fun in life. (And no, I’m not just saying this because it’s on the company blog.) *** I’m thankful for my earthly treasures such as money to afford shelter and transportation. I’m thankful for my family, my boyfriend and for supportive friends that have shown me that miles apart can’t break a true bond. But, i’m also thankful for things that are not seen and are only felt: forgiveness, unconditional love, acceptance, favor, unwavering support and faith. I’m thankful for the one who orchestras it all for me – My Creator. I’m thankful that I know Him, and that He loves me even when I don’t feel lovable.
Billy (lead developer)
I’m thankful for my amazing wife. Our baby that is on the way. Having a great place to work, Liquidfish, boom. But, I’m most thankful for John 1:17.
I’m thankful for new beginnings.
I'm thankful for best friends, love, dogs, and family.
Christopher (graphic designer)
I’m thankful for my very supportive and loving family. And also ice cream.
I’m thankful for my wonderful wife and my healthy 18-month-old son!
I’m thankful for my girlfriend, dogs and rats. And champagne.
Jennifer (project manager)
I’m thankful for my sweet husband, our beautiful little boy, our growing family (baby #2 due next year!), wonderful friends and family, a job that I love, the undefeated New England Patriots, and of course, J.Crew.
I’m thankful for being given a chance this year. I was accepted at Liquidfish with close to no real web design experience but Cody gave me a shot of which I’m grateful. I’m learning a field of design that is very valuable (and enjoyable!) and I get to work at a super cool agency with a fantastic group of people.
Katylee (account executive)
I’m thankful to have found a guy that wants to spend the rest of his life with me and for working at a company where everyone cares about each other on a deeper level.
Maddy (executive assistant)
2015 has given me lots to be thankful for. I'm thankful to be a proud orange-wearing alumna of Oklahoma State, for OKC that continues to surprise me with new adventures, for my family, friends and community who love me well, and for my school of fish at my wonderful job here! And lastly, I'm thankful for my 10-1 OSU Cowboys! Go Pokes!
Matt (business & technical analyst)
I’m thankful for my dogs and rats. And champagne.
Melissa (senior copywriter)
I’m thankful for life's little luxuries: coffee, tacos, Netflix marathons, good eyebrow days, to name a few.
I'm grateful for any opportunity, big or small. You just never know where an opportunity will lead! Like working for Liquidfish… then going to Chicago!
I’m thankful for the new Star Wars movie.
Wendy (social media specialist)
First of all, I'm most thankful for the freedom I have through Jesus. I'm thankful for my husband and the life we've built with our two beautiful children. And I'm very thankful for caffeine because without it, I would be unable to care for said children.
Zack (design director)
I’m thankful for my fiance, Rebecca, my amazing family and friends and having such a kick-ass place to work.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Liquidfish!
