Year In Review: 2021, a variant of 2020.

Hope. Anxiety. Depression. Confusion. These are just some of the words I would use to describe my experience of the past year, which, to be honest, are the same words I would have used to describe 2020.

But there were a few differences from the start of the pandemic, which made this year marginally better than last. Being able to eat in a restaurant for my birthday, or traveling out of state for the holidays are top of mind for me.

I am engaging more with my friends on Instagram, connecting with those I haven’t seen in a long time (seriously, we are coming up to 2 years now!). And, of course, I have decided to actually start blogging right here.

“Free Sniffs.” Our very first gift fair was held at Windward Mall (Kaneohe, Hawaii) in November. This event launched our business to the community where our candles are made.

The one difference this year that really made a big impact on me was successfully launching my candle business in the midst of a shipping and supply chain crisis. Second to writing is my desire to create with my own hands and to share my creations with others. Candle-making allows me to do both.

And the best part? I get to do this with Mike, who has been my number one source of comfort, encouragement, and inspiration throughout the year.

So, here we are, at the end of a second year of uncertainty. But one thing is certain: we can make 2022 a better year.
