We'll admit, we're not much for the mushy stuff. And we're not talking about the Thanksgiving mashed potatoes we've been dreaming about all week. While the holiday cliches are sweet and all, we prefer to get our dose of cheese in the form of baked brie. But this year, we've got a lot to be thankful for, so we just had to share. From being named #1 on Inc. Magazine's Inc. 500 List to co-workers expecting their first little ones and everything in between, 2011 has been a good year! Check out what some ideelists are thankful for this year:
"Besides the obvious (my wonderful family and friends, good health, a roof over my head), this year I am grateful for all the possibilities of growth that it brought and for having found the courage to take on them. Not easy for an introverted techie!" - Eduardo, VP of Engineering
"Family and friends who have passed through NYC and visited always bringing a piece of home with them to me. I moved halfway across the country so I'm thankful for the chance to start over in an incredible city that will never cease to amaze me while being surrounded by interesting and generous people." - Elizabeth, Merchandising and Event Operations
"I am so thankful to be able to share my table and American traditions at Thanksgiving with friends from all over the world - Germany, Ireland, England, St. Lucia and Australia." - Elisabeth, Editorial Sale Producer
"I am thankful for a work from home position with an amazing company. I am thankful that I am happy when I work everyday. I am thankful for all of our members, because without them, we wouldn't have the jobs we love. I am thankful to live in a country that protects my freedom to speak my mind. Our service men and women who are away from their families receive my heart most felt thanks. But I'm also really thankful for $29 Seven jeans." - Diomira, West Coast Customer Service
