I feel grateful this Thanksgiving for many things.
For my family – Thank you always for your love and support. Distance changes nothing.
For our readers – Three Village is such a great community. Thank you for continually inspiring me to be the best reporter I can be.
For Nick Sambides Jr., Katahdin-Lincoln Lakes Region reporter, Bangor Daily News – You are a terrific journalist. Not sure if you know this, but I look up to you for that and many other reasons. Thanks for all you do, and thanks for always believing in me.
For Henry Powderly, Patch Regional Editor – Thank you for being a great boss; I've learned so much from you over the 2+ years we have worked together. Thanks also for your encouragement during NaNoWriMo. I'm halfway there.
For AnnMarie Accetta – Thank you for being my best friend. Few people understand me quite like you do and I want you to know I appreciate having you in my life.
For Rich Wong – Thank you for helping me remember my roots, and for not making me feel crazy about needing to keep my food separated on my plate.
For my friends and Patch colleagues – Thank you for being awesome.
