On Being Thankful


Our company is run by deadlines. Commercial clients have website launches, presentations, marketing campaigns, and bosses they report to. Restoration clients have funerals, birthdays, and (our favorite) the “I-stole-this-from-my-family-member-and-you-have-to-hurry-before-she-beats-me” deadline. Time is valuable, and we try to spend it as wisely as we can.

Thanksgiving has been on our minds since late-August. We were in a staff meeting and realized that the holiday was only 12 weeks away. Mary Lou put her head in her hands and said, “All of our work needs to be caught up by Thanksgiving.” Holiday orders start rolling in at the beginning of November, and we needed to be prepared.

No pressure or anything.

If you could power our studio with the energy created from the hard work, anxiety, and (sometimes) sheer panic that went (and goes) into completing these orders, then we would have zero need for BGE.

This year, we have so much to be thankful for.

We are thankful for preparedness and teamwork. Without forethought and our excellent team, we wouldn’t have our studio, and we wouldn’t be able to serve our clients.

We are thankful for deadlines and that feeling you get when a job is not only completed, but done well. That prideful feeling is one of the things that keeps us going.

We are thankful for clients who appreciate our hard work and are proud to display that work on their websites, on their walls, or in their albums. We love working with every single one of you.

We are thankful for having a business that we love and creating memories for our clients.

We are thankful.

Over the past few days, we’ve heard a lot of people say, “I can’t believe Thanksgiving is this week. Where does the time go?!” These people giggle playfully and smack their foreheads. Statements like these drive us insane. It’s hard not to turn into Larry David and say, “Don’t you people look at calendars? Do you float through life?!”

You see, we have so much to be thankful for, and that shouldn’t sneak up on you.
