giving thanks: a very cabi home office thanksgiving

November 7, 2019

With Thanksgiving around the corner, it’s a great time to start thinking about the things we’re grateful for. Maybe it’s your new job, coming home to a meal cooked for you by your loved one, that stranger who held a door for you, or that barista who complimented your jacket. There are so many reasons to be grateful, and it’s great practice to regularly consider what those things are.

We decided to interview some members of the cabi Home Office Team to find out what they’re thankful for this year. And, in light of our Fall 2019 Campaign, we asked them to share something that makes them unique because we never get tired of hearing people’s stories and celebrating diversity! Read the interviews below to learn more about what cabi team members are grateful for this season.

After two years of living apart because of my husband’s work, we’re back under one roof as a family (and we got a new puppy!).

What makes you unique?
I really enjoy stretching myself in areas that are uncomfortable, and I constantly like to shake things up! Whether that’s reading a new book, listening to a public speaker who makes me think differently, or trying activities I’ve never tried before.

I love supporting Stylists who leverage their cabi business to make a difference in their communities, while also providing for their families.

In the last year, we bought out first home, had a baby girl, and got a puppy. It’s been so much fun watching my family grow!

What makes you unique?
I’ve been told I have a huge personality in a small package. And I’m more than happy to give people directions even though I don’t know my left from my right!

What do you love about working at cabi?
The freedom to think big, act fast, and make mistakes without consequence.

What are you thankful for this year?
I’m thankful I’ve fully recovered from my foot surgery and can now get my foot into any pair of shoes I desire! Oh the joy of shoes—one can never have enough!

I can control chaos in all forms. Whether it’s organizing the thoughts that are in Daniele’s head and making them come to life or wrangling my two kids, hubby, dog, tortoise, and elder parents.

I absolutely love the sense of family that exists at the cabi Home Office. I always feel supported and celebrated in everything I do.

What makes you unique?
I grew up in the South West, East Coast, and West Coast of the U.S., so I have a smattering of regional influences within me.

What do you love about working at cabi?
Topping the list is the incredible people—they’re fun, loving, full of character and integrity, hard-working, humble, and creative. Cabi’s culture is a beautiful mix of both high-support and high-challenge, which means we’re accomplishing great things while having each other’s backs. Additionally, cabi deeply benefits the lives of so many women around the globe—it’s a privilege to contribute to that impact. 

What are you thankful for this year?
I’m thankful for my incredible husband who serves our family selflessly every day in ways big and small. And so thankful he’s become open to the possibility of someday, maybe, somehow getting a dog!

Let’s take it one step further…how can we help make space for more gratitude in the world? Something you say or do can be someone else’s cause for thanks. Small acts of kindness go a long way, so as you think about the things you’re thankful for, start thinking about how you can contribute to someone else’s gratitude. Not only will it feel good to do (yes, being selfish here is actually a good thing!), but you’ll be spreading generosity and helping others get into the spirit of Thanksgiving. With that in mind, we want to know what you’re thankful for this year—share your thoughts in the comments below!
