What Are You Thankful For?

During this holiday season, we are reminded of what we are thankful for at BAERING and at home. We asked our team to share what they are most thankful for, and what Thanksgiving traditions are their favorite!

 Miles Clark, Graphic Designer

 What are you most thankful for at BAERING? I am thankful to have fun clients who are willing to step outside of their comfort zone and do something crazy and creative. It’s cool to work with clients who have an impact on our community and we can help make that happen.

What MUST be on the Thanksgiving dinner table? If there’s no ham, I’m leaving.

What’s a favorite Thanksgiving memory? My favorite memory is when I had to identify the parts of a turkey that link it back to the dinosaurs as part of a college project. You would be surprised at the things a T-Rex and a turkey have in common.

What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition or memory?  My favorite Thanksgiving tradition is to go around the table and have everyone share what they are thankful for.
