Season's Greeting Berlin Natural Bakery Family!
Wow! What a year it has been. Just when you think you’ve dealt with all the “unprecedented” the world has to offer and then BAM! 2022 appears with its own unique set of challenges and circumstances that leave you upended! It seems impossible to get through and then suddenly you end another year amazed that you made it through and so incredibly blessed by a year of learning, repositioning and a new richness in relationships.
We’ve tried to be transparent with our struggles this year but as we get ready to close the chapter on 2022, I’d love to write about all we are grateful for.
First, we are so grateful to have recently added some incredible GEMS to our Berlin Natural Bakery team. We have obviously been understaffed but we made a few new hires that have given some new liveliness to both our packaging and baking departments! Change oftentimes seems scary and there were definitely moments this year of “yikes! We need more hands. How are we going to do this?” But thankfully we’ve got a spectacular group of people on our hands and we’re so incredibly close to having a full roster once again!
To piggyback off of that, I’d be remiss not to highlight and honor our incredible leaders who literally stood in the gap while we were on the lookout for new hires. Our General Manager Cindy and our Operations Manager Karl are truly examples of excellence and honor and commitment and extraordinary leadership. They spent a lot of time in the trenches - this year and many others - and their presence was inspiring and uplifting even during the Cyber Monday avalanche sale!
Speaking of Cyber Monday - WOWZA! Now that was one doozy of a sale and we couldn’t be more in awe of the response to it. A record breaking Cyber Monday that leaves us feeling humble and grateful. It wasn’t without its challenges but we couldn’t be more grateful for your support, your kindness and your patience as we dug ourselves out of that incredible avalanche!
This truly is the type of year that creates refinement and resilience. The kind of year that develops leaders and confidence and extraordinary faith because despite the odds, we’ve made it through. We’ve weathered literal storms, we’ve gotten creative, we’ve grown, we’ve dug deep and we’ve made it to the holidays. We have continued doing what’s right even when it isn’t easy and we excitedly look forward to 2023.
So we raise a “toast” to you and your family! To your health and your growth and your peace! May you have a gentle holiday season that ushers in a New Year of happy memories and joy!
With all our best,
Nicole & The Berlin Natural Bakery Family
