It’s that time again—Thanksgiving Day! Whether you celebrate with a mile-high plate of food or go and volunteer your time, Thanksgiving is a special time of year. There has been a lot of hard work and dedication that has gone into this year, but our team always likes to take a moment to remember how much we have to be thankful for.

Take a look at what some of the FastSpring team is thankful for this year.

“I’m thankful for my little community of amazing colleagues, friends, and family. I’m also thankful for my cat and dog, and that this year they finally became best friends.” – Priscilla Figueroa, People Operations Specialist

“This year I am thankful for all of my family, friends, and The Great British Baking Show. I am looking forward to spending time with niece and showing her how awesome Paul Hollywood is from The Great British Baking Show is.” – Caitie Gonzalez, Marketing Communications Manager

“This year I am thankful for good health, my friends, marrying my amazing wife in April, moving into an awesome new house and that my career took a challenging and fun turn, landing me at FastSpring with great people!” – Pete Puttmann, Account Executive

“This year I am immeasurably thankful that my wonderful fiancee said yes in July, that she and I found a beautiful little house to move into, that everyone I love is healthy, that I have a job I enjoy, a boss I respect, and a team I have fun with.” – Kelson Sebring, Senior Sales Operations Manager

“I am thankful for my health, August of last year I had a really bad bike accident so I’m thankful to be healthy again. I’m also really grateful for my community both here at FastSpring and in the larger Santa Barbara community.” -Timur Nasafi, IT Manager

“I am thankful for so many things this year…the people I’m surrounded by every day of the week, whether it be my fun, smart, and passionate coworkers, or my goofy, fun-loving, healthy family. I’m thankful to get to live in a place where my kids can play outside 360 days of the year, where I can feed them food that is grown locally, and where nothing takes longer than 12 minutes to get to.” – Sarah Bottorff, VP of Marketing

“2019 has been such a great year that it’s hard to put it into a handful of words! This year I’m grateful for the people who lift me up and remind me to be the best version of myself, the beautiful place I call home, and the personal growth I’ve experienced.” – Claire Shuman, Sales Development Representative

“I’m thankful to be able to spend Thanksgiving surrounded by friends and family. Being far away from home makes me appreciate the time I get to spend with them over the holidays.” -Hannah Juley, Marketing Coordinator

The FastSpring team truly enjoys this special time of year where we can spend time with loved ones and give back to our local community. Whether it’s inviting C.A.R.E 4 Paws to the office, or raising money to donate to the Boys & Girls Club. Giving back is a core part of our values, and we’re thrilled to have an amazing team that always lends a helping hand.

On behalf of our FastSpring team, we wish you a fun and safe Thanksgiving!
