Nugget of Knowledge

'Happiness is not the absence of problems; it's the ability to deal with them.'- Steve Maraboli

Sometimes the things that cause us the most strain, often becomes the most beloved parts of our life. As a parent, this could not be more true. The innagural edition of Puget Sound was truly a labor of love, but offered many challenges since we did not yet have a full time person on staff to focus exclusively on the new guide. BUT- the Puget Sound edition broke every goal we had for our growth, made us appreciate our current staff more, and helped us find our newest team member, Dale. We could not be more happy, proud, or grateful. -Amy
