We here at Adafruit would like to wish each and every one of you a Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you for your support and thank you for being a part of our community – Adafruit exists because of all of you!
We asked our team to share all that they are thankful for this year! You can see some of their responses below.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Adafruit!
I’m Thankful for the mind blowing opportunity to work at the robotics company I’ve ordered parts from! In my time spent working at Adafruit, I am no less than mind blown every day to learn what goes down in Adafruit and I’m forever thankful that I get to live my dreams through every day of work.
I’m thankful for my new rescue dog, who’s an adorable wiggly cuddle bug.
So thankful to be doing this work with these folks in this city. Thankful and hopeful that we will all keep looking out for each other in these times.
I am thankful for my family and my health.
I am thankful that while I might not have everything I want, I have everything that I need.
I’m thankful for my work team here at Adafruit, my family and friends, Bach’s Goldberg Variations, cold cans of seltzer, and that searing, New York specific, late-November afternoon light.
This year has been one of many challenges and joys. New house, new spouse. Third time is the charm for Artemis 1. New team members. And the Adafruit family has been there for it all. May we all continue to thrive and live well.
I’m thankful to be able to do work that I enjoy with a group of awesome people!
