Yep, I’m thankful too

Playing around on all the new social media sites – Twitter, Seesmic, what have you – I have seen a lot of “What I’m Thankful For” posts. Of course, I’m thankful for a lot of things this Thanksgiving, so I thought I’d follow suit:

  • Two incredible sons who keep reminding me not to take everything so seriously.
  • A fabulous husband who makes an amazing pumpkin cheesecake and keeps me laughing all year long.
  • A close knit family and in-laws that rock, too.
  • My grandfather, who is an amazing testament to living the good life. He just turned 83 and is still in the gym every day. He also spent the last 15+ years by my grandmother’s bedside while she struggled with Alzheimer’s. (I’ll be posting about that amazing story sometime soon.)
  • My oldest brother (a brilliant NYU film student) who drove up from NYC with his girlfriend to spend the weekend with us.
  • My new social media friends! In a very short time I’ve felt welcomed to a whole new world of Boston tech enthusiasts – and I keep learning from them every day. Amanda Mooney, Scott Monty, Chris Brogan, Sarah Wurrey, Jeff Pulver, Nate Burke and more. Thank you for all the tips – and laughs!
  • The opportunity to be a working mom. Some days it feels overwhelming but I love both roles, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Now, back to the family.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    That’s one swell thing about this whole new realm of social media meets telepresence: people can be parents *and* contributors to the business world. It’s a nice blend.

    Glad you’re around. It’s nice pointing to your organization as quite a successful one, and I am looking forward to this coming year, as I’m sure we’ll have more opportunity to hang out at various social media events. : )

    And thank you for the shout-out. The last few weeks in the Boston social media scene have been great (thanks in no small part to Mr. Pulver). But I’m glad to have met you and the wonderful people of PerkettPR. I hadn’t heard of your group prior to the Blogger Dinner, but now you’re everywhere!

    Here’s hoping that 2008 brings us all even closer.
