We’ve got a lot of people to get even with! For all the months and, now, years, that we’ve been at this… building our dream job… we’ve come into contact with so many people. So many. And in the words of John E. Southard, “the only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you.” For us, that is a big number. Family, friends, friends of friends, mentors, volunteers, and even enthusiastic strangers have bolstered us and helped us make each next step with Eklund Griffin. It gives us warm fuzzies to reflect on these relationships, momentary or enduring, and let our hearts buoy with love and amazement at the communities we find ourselves a part of.
So, as Thanksgiving is upon us- we’re taking the opportunity to express our gratitude to all who have bumped into us, intentionally or accidentally, and shared your time with us. It means the world.
May you have a very happy Thankgiving and may your heart swell as much (or more!) than your stomach! Blair + Hayley
