January 2016

Welcome, 2016!

2015 was a year not unlike others: it had its share of ups, downs, stillness and chaos. 365 days, 52 weeks and 12 months filled with happiness, sadness, laughter and tears. Looking back, it feels almost fleeting… time gone by so quickly.

And here we are, back to another January to begin a fresh New Year. We know it will happen and yet, it’s a surprise when it catches up with us. Soon, a childhood has gone by, an adolescence has been survived, and a lifetime passed.

We think January is the perfect time to bring clarity to your life. It brings about a new perspective, new goals. Be kind. Spend time with people who love and respect you, and who respect and love you in return. Take risks. Delight in contentedness and comfort. Have fun!

For times gone by, my dear
For times gone by,
We will take a cup of kindness yet
For times gone by.
We two have run about the hillsides
And pulled the daisies fine,
But we have wandered many a weary foot
For times gone by…
And there is a hand, my trusty friend,
And give us a hand of yours,
And we will take a goodwill drink
For times gone by!
—Auld Lang Syne, Modern English Version

One of Angela Kowieski’s favorite sayings is, “It’s not a fad — it’s a lifestyle!” For her, it’s more than a seemingly lighthearted phrase to encompass an alternative idea. She has taken it to the next level for herself, her family and for all who appreciate her vision for the…
