Happy New Year!

Hello Friends and Happy New Year!

2020, a year that we will never forget. Through the ups and the downs, my family and I did our best to see the silver lining of each situation.

It wasn’t always easy, and we all had times we struggled. Our children were home from school for months, and we worked from home instead of heading into the office. While this wasn’t always easy, it allowed me to be more involved in the girl’s studies, and they learned a bit more about our business, they even helped at times!

In lieu of heading home to Poland, we spent part of the summer becoming certified sailors in the US-a hobby we’ve enjoyed in Poland which was much more challenging not being a native speaker! Our daughters enjoyed being on the water, even becoming honorary sailors. We all loved seeing the dolphins in the bay!

As the year came to a close, the highlight was certainly our second annual {Save} Angel Night benefiting The Laurel Center. I learned about The Laurel Center and their mission last year, and I was so touched and impressed by the amazing resource in our community. While we were not able to have an in-person event this year, the awesome staff suggested a virtual event. I was so impressed with how it turned out, and how many of you attended! We can’t wait to have our third annual {Save} Angel Night in-person in December 2021.

Speaking of 2021, we have big plans that we wanted to share with you.

We are excited to be increasing our presence in Berkeley Springs, WV at our lab and studio. We hope that our lab will be operational this year, which will allow us to develop and manufacture some of our products in the US instead of in Poland. Of course, we will maintain the EU’s strict product standards while incorporating the healing waters of the Springs. 2021 will also bring more giveaways, more collaborations and a growing team! We have a few other things in the works, but it’s still top secret!

I am so hopeful for the year ahead. Wishing you all good health and peace for this new year!

Xoxo,

Joanna
