In the spirit of Thanksgiving, this week we’re sharing the things we’re thankful for. Happy Turkey Day, y’all!

Debbie is thankful that I still love what I do after 25 years in marketing communications – Every day I learn something new and I’m constantly entertained by the creativity that defines our industry. And, of course, the biggest reason that I love my job is the wonderful people I get to work with every day. I’ve had the good fortune to work with a very talented crew of creative thinkers, writers, designers and Internet experts over the years. For their hard work and great sense of humor, I’m truly thankful. Happy Thanksgiving!

Nathan is thankful for my Macbook Pro – I love working from a laptop as it allows me to be portable, giving me the ability to work from anywhere. But I guarantee I wouldn’t love it as much if I wasn’t working on a Macbook. When it comes to working on a laptop, I can literally work 5x faster on my macbook than I can on any other laptop because of Apples multi-touch technology. So nice!

Shawn is thankful for great clients – Over the years I have worked with a lot of them. Too many to possibly try to count or recall off the top of my head. But then, out of the blue, I’ll come across an old file or a name will come up in conversation and it instantly triggers working with that client. The good, the bad (usually minimal), and the fun. All of it. Fortunately, this year I’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the best clients yet. Not because they are easy to please, but instead because they are fun to please. Open to ideas. Interested. Excitable. All the things that are fuel for a creative type such as myself.

Susan is thankful for my Blackberry Curve – I’ve finally come into the smart phone age. After resisting the craze for years because I didn’t want to spend the extra money, I finally gave in and got the Blackberry Curve at Verizon. And I’m so happy I did. Not only can I check my email on the fly, but I can update my Twitter and Facebook status while on the road this holiday season (well, not actually on the road because I still can’t stand those who text and drive!). But don’t be surprised to see me talking about the Long John Silver’s at Exit 172 on I-20 or (hopefully) a fun lunch the Chick-Fil-A in Madison, Georgia with former Talker, Ashley!
