The year 2012 has taken many twists and turns in the news and in our lives here at Patch.
When we take a moment to reflect at who and what surrounds us, we realize that there is an abundance to be thankful for.
We are grateful for our friends and families, our neighbors and colleagues. We are thankful to live in the beautiful cities that dot the Peninsula and San Mateo County coastline. And we are very thankful for you - the community we cover daily and for whom Patch would not exist without.
There is so much to be thankful for this holiday season, and we would love for you to share your thoughts with us.
