It’s been a year of great loss for me both personally and professionally. We lost my brother to Covid at the beginning of the pandemic and as a family are still processing that. Oakland has been closed for 10 months now and that’s a painful journey to navigate. Even though this has been hands down the most stressful year of my life, I am still grateful. Thank you so much to our clients who have kept us afloat with product orders. Thank you so much for the kind messages you send me, they don’t go unnoticed.
Finally, my staff, you guys have helped me so much to keep my head up this year. I truly can’t thank you enough for lending an ear when I needed to vent, for being optimistic in these tough times, for being strong when I wasn’t.
I am looking forward to happier days with all of you.
