In honor of Thanksgiving and the feast it entails we’ll have a week full of funny, thoughtful and just plain awesome blog posts. Check it out daily to see how our staff plans to “StayThankful”. To kick off the first installment of “StayThankful”2013 our Restaurant Manager, Lacey Cole  starts us off with the reasons to be thankful for family!


This year has brought many new changes to my life. The most important being that in August I became a mother to a beautiful baby girl. Her name is Hadley and every day I am so thankful that I get to be her mommy. I am thankful to have such a loving and supportive boyfriend and family. I am also very thankful for my job here at the Holiday Inn. I am blessed to work in a place that allows me the time I need to spend with my daughter and works with the hectic schedule of a first time mom. These days there are not many places of employment that truly allow you to put family as a top priority, yet that is exactly how it is at the Holiday Inn. I am lucky enough to have a boss that truly cares about me as a person as well as an employee. We are more than co-workers here, we are a work family and I am very grateful for each and every one of my colleagues. I am truly thankful for all of our staff, every day they try to provide our guests with a comfortable, warm and welcoming atmosphere. From our family to yours, Happy Holidays!!
