Happy Thanksgiving!

November 23, 2021

During this time of year, we reflect on all that we are grateful for: from our fantastic clients, to our wicked-smart team who makes all the magic happen, and most of all, those “No edits!” emails at 4:30 p.m. on a Friday. But in all seriousness, this Thanksgiving, we are reminded that it’s a combination of the big and small moments that makes us grateful to wake up each day to do what we love. 

By day, The Abbi Agency is made up of full-time, kick-a$$ marketers, creatives and PR pros, but outside of those office (or Zoom) walls, #TeamAbbi is grateful to spend their free time as outdoor adventurers, travel enthusiasts, wine connoisseurs, Netflix critics, pop-culture fiends and of course, professional pet snugglers (you should see our #pets channel on Slack.)

Here’s what our team members had to say when asked what they are grateful for this year, both on and off the Turkey Day table.

Abbi Whitaker: I am thankful for my cats and cat videos. I don’t know what I would do without them. And of course, my kids and my hubby. And dry shampoo!
