As 2015 comes to a close and we open the doors to a New Year, we can’t help but reminisce on some of our favorite moments of the year. A lot has happened at the Jonas Paul Eyewear office this past year and we want to share with you a few of our most memorable moments!
Adding a new member to the family: If you didn’t already know, this past July we welcomed a new member to the Harrison family. Jonas gained a little sister named Sophie Ruth Harrison. Her smile lights up the whole room and so blessed to have her as our own. She is too young now, but we are sure she will ask what company will be named after her!
Moving into an office space: 2015 was a year of milestones for Jonas Paul Eyewear, but one of our favorites has to be when we went from working at our home to an official office space. Located right in Downtown Grand Rapids, MI - everyday we are reminded of how lucky we are to be where we are while continuing the mission we have for Jonas Paul Eyewear.
Jonas’ trip to Disney World: Throughout the year, we have traveled all over the states to speak about Jonas Paul Eyewear and hopefully leave an impact on some listeners who were inspired by our story. Out of all the traveling, we loved our visit to Orlando, Florida. Not only was Ben awarded the Krider prize for creativity from UCDA, Jonas was able to experience his first trip to Disney World! It was an unforgettable experience from going on multiple rides to seeing the Lion King show, Jonas’ smile and laughter is what made this trip one of our favorites in 2015.
Our first Christmas party: For our company only being a little over 2 years old, 2015 was our first year of having a Christmas party for the whole team at Jonas Paul Eyewear. A night full of food and board games – it was a perfect evening and reminded us how far we have come this year.
Jonas visits the office: During Christmas break, Jonas stopped by the office for half the day to hang out with everyone. Or, watch television on the iPad and play with his cup full of colored lights. Either way, it was an enjoyable afternoon and as Jonas calls it, “Jonaspauleyewear.com,” the whole office was happy to see him!
2015 Office Favorites…
Favorite snack: What’s an office without any snacks? While working, we can’t help but have snacks to refuel us throughout the day. From pretzels to veggie sticks to peanuts – our most favorite snack to munch on is currently pretzel nuggets. Pretzel on the outside with peanut butter on the inside, you can’t help but instantly smile with each bite of deliciousness. Give them a try, you’ll thank us later!
Favorite music: While busy working throughout the day, our current music obsession of 2015 is definitely elevator music, or what we call it at the office, “twangy” elevator music. The perfect mix to help us stay focused, motivated and relaxed.
Favorite activity: To take a break and reset the brain, the men of the office love to play darts – sometimes to work up an extra sweat, push-ups will be involved.
There has never been a dull moment at the office and we love what we do! It’s been a great 2015 and we are looking forward to 2016 and all that it brings.
We are so thankful for you all and hope you have a happy New Year!
