Giving Thanks

At Alicia K Designs, the Thanksgiving holiday signifies one of the first times all of us are able to sit down and relax after a busy season.  This allows us to be even more thankful for the time off and to reflect on all of the sweetness of the year! Without further ado, Alicia K Designs is thankful for....

Alicia: I am thankful to be surrounded by so many people that love, support, and encourage me everyday to not give up on my dreams. I am thankful for Team AK, for believing in my vision and working so hard to accomplish it.  I am thankful for my friends, for making me laugh and smile anytime I'm with them.   I am thankful for my mother who gave up so much of her dreams so that I could accomplish mine. I am thankful for a husband who doesn't believe in "roles" and who reminds me of what is important.   I am thankful for my beautiful babies - for their love, snuggles, and giggles - and for making life so much better.   I am thankful for this crazy but beautiful life.

Jessica: There are many things I am thankful for thus far in my incredible/ crazy life, way too many to list but I will name a few!  At the top of the list is of course my loving and supporting family, friends, and boyfriend- I don’t know what I would do without any of them.  Also at the top of the list is being able to work at my dream job, in the city that I love with such an inspiring team of women- so thankful for you all!  Being able to travel to countries all over the world has made me thankful for a lot of things, but especially freedom, nature, beauty, culture and of course food (and wine!).  I am thankful many, many things but I can not forget to list my health and being able to live my life with a lot of laughs, love, happiness, and salted caramel...

Marguerite: I am thankful for my grandchildren who give me so much joy and happiness. Their kisses, hugs, and sweet conversations make me thankful to be a grandmother. I am also thankful for Alicia as she has given me so much love and support her whole life and my late dog, RD (rat dog) who is now at peace. Most of all, I am thankful for a good (and large) cup of coffee- and a top notch parking spot near my home on Nob Hill (so I do not have to drag my grandkids up the steep hills).

HazelI am thankful for my family and friends who love me unconditionally and always pushes and inspires me to become a better person. I am thankful for my health which allows me to do what I love most: explore the outdoors, play volleyball, go to my bootcamps and my burn classes.  Also thankful for some of the beautiful fall days we've been having-another reason why I love California. Thankful for my ability to travel as much as I have this year, to see the world and eat all the delicious food each location offers. Thankful for AK, and how lucky I am to work at a job I enjoy/love with a boss and colleagues who are as amazing as they are. Also thankful for small, but essential things that make my life happier and brighter: macarons, donuts, books, my comfy bed, movies, ice cream (in a sugar cone), freshly made french press coffee, warm blankets and red wine on a cold day.

Amanda: I am first and foremost eternally grateful for my family and friends who love me through thick and thin, and who never cease to make me smile and laugh. I am the most grateful for my mom & pop for instilling a crazy work ethic(blessing & a curse...) and reminding me that I always have two biggest fans. I am thankful for those who inspire me artistically, and who inspire me to become the best version of myself that I didn't even know existed. I am thankful that Team AK allows me to design the crazy stuff I see in my head, and have the courage to allow me to execute it (you guys are crazy for letting me do this!). I am SO SO thankful that I get to work with my hands on a daily basis, and that I am reminded daily of the most important stuff--that flowers are small gifts that remind me that everything around me is growing, breathing, and living in the most utterly beautiful way. I am so thankful to still have the gift of movement & dance, and am so lucky to have friends & family that support this extension of my artistic expressions.  Last but not least, I am forever humbled by the great gift of the Gods: Good coffee. You have allowed me to do more in a day than I have ever thought possible.

LexiI am thankful for the love and constant support of my family and friends. I am thankful for my husband who lets me be my crazy self and loves me anyway.  I am thankful for my new friends at AKD and the fun memories we've already had. I am thankful I get to experience love everyday. I am thankful my family can cook a mean turkey.

Gloria: I am always thankful for spending time with family and friends.  I am blessed with two extremely mellow, grounded and intelligent teenagers- sometimes a bit smarter than Mom- LOL - and I am thankful to have the unconditional love and support of so many of my friends.  As I have gotten older I have realized that it takes a village to do almost anything! Team AK is just awesome what more can I say.  I feel extremely privileged to be able to work with a friend and colleague I have know and respected for many years.  I cant think of a better way to spend my day than working alongside an incredible group of women all contributing to the growth and success of Alicia K Designs.

From our family to yours, the team at Alicia K Designs wants to wish you and yours a fabulous holiday full of happiness, warmth, good food, good people, and laughter.
