With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away, there’s a lot to plan. Organizing travel, seeing family and friends, shopping, cooking, and of course, giving thanks.

Before you sit down to the Thanksgiving table, we want to give you an opportunity to reflect on the past year and share your story. What are you grateful for? Tell us about how someone or something helped you along the way. Maybe a beloved karaoke bar changed your life or maybe you’re simply grateful for the unconditional love from your cat. However big or small, we want to hear about it.

Here’s how it works:

  • Let us know what you’re grateful for in 500 words or less by emailing your story to
  • Please include your name and a photo with a brief description.
  • We’ll publish your story, and share it on throughout November.
