As I was researching Thanksgiving for this blog post, I was most surprised to find out that turkey wasn't even served at the first Thanksgiving. Tough to imagine, I know! This year, I'm giving thanks for leftovers, because turkey sandwiches are far and away my favorite thing about the holiday. Besides pie.
I'm also giving thanks for being my own boss, setting my own hours, and generally being able to work from wherever I want, whether its at home with my trusty canine by my side or a coworking space in a city across the country from my home.
