Today I had the best cup of coffee in a long time and I have been drinking Lacombe for well over a decade. We are trying to celebrate the little victories in my home and at Valley Financial Group. The last few weeks have been some of the craziest in recent memory. It seems anytime you flick on the news, log onto your computer, or even just glance at your phone, there is more horrible news about the insane events that have taken over our world.
