as with any new venture, there is a certain amount of uncertainty. will it survive? maybe even thrive? i'd like to think we have passed the infancy stage, chugged into the toddler phase and there we sit in the midst of the sandbox. observing, learning, and anticipating our next steps. it has not all been easy. we have certainly had our share of growing pains. we've identified somes obstacles. questioned the intent of a few. had our hearts broken a time or two.
we've had our vision questioned. our mission doubted. there have been temper tantrums, by both us and a visitor. we've had checks bounce and products stolen. we've been lied to and had untrue rumors spread.
but in the end, the challenges do not come close to the fun we've had and the laughter we've shared. the greatest gift of all...sarah is still by my side...alive...which i am grateful for each and every day.
thank you so very much for helping to make our dream come true. thank you for sticking with us. we look forward to the excitement of a new year!
