In the famous words of Albus Dumbledore, “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” Even though he’s a fictional character, he makes a good point. Considering how 2020 has had its ups and downs, we wanted to share some of our bright spots with you. Enjoy these highlights from our team, and feel free to send us yours; we would love to hear them!
