Hindsight is 20/20 👀.
The only reason why we critique our past is because we’ve arrived at a state of heightened awareness.
Use that heightened awareness as a guide to live with more intention and unapologetic purpose (self-defined, that is).
You’re at this point in your life for some reason. Even if it doesn’t feel like it. Be open to the lessons to be learned and the growth to come.

Since week typically involves around what we are thankful 🙏🏼 for, I just want to take a moment and thank our fabulous clients. ♥️♥️
When we opened our business doors this year we had no idea what would happen. Every dollar we have made has gone right back into the business so we can get even better. We are constantly evolving, learning and find inspiration every where to make what we do even more epic.
In my freshman year of college in 2006 I sat in a class about entrepreneurship. I knew right then and there I wanted to own a business. In 2008 I picked up my first camera.
It took awhile for the business and camera paths to cross...and to grow 🌱 into what we are becoming...but boy I am so damn glad they did.
Happy Thanksgiving 🍁 to everyone that supports us. Y’all are the best! Thank you for being on this journey with us 💛🧡
Perhaps throwing 🍁 leaves in the air can be seen as some big metaphor to motherhood! The way no two leaves are the same, but are all uniquely shaped! They also become beautifully vibrant depending on the season and all experience change and falls!
Everyone loves Roman’s spirit, especially his zest for life! He’s the one who reminds me to lean in, and grab all the fallen leaves I can and have fun with him throwing them in the air! Giving those fallen leaves new height shows they can be picked up... You may never know where you are going to land in life, but I will certainly pay attention to the little things that lets us see our children! Here I am thinking I am the one teaching them when indeed its them who are teaching me! For that, I am grateful!
Yo! We want to welcome you to come hangout 8-11am Thanksgiving morning at @boldbeancoffee beaches. They will be closed but @showpigeoncoffee will be there with coffee and @djamytran is literally DJing from her van. Come hang, it will be RAD! ⚡️If not we hope everyone has a very joyful Thanksgiving.
Already snow storm numero dos and it’s not even December yet 😭🥶 And Kai thinks he’s a big boy now (maybe he is 💔) and wants to be out shoveling and throwing snowballs at me 🤦🏻♀️ I’m dreading it all... good thing he’s pretty cute.

It’s hard to believe it’s Thanksgiving in two days! Something about this time of year really puts things in perspective. On one side.. I’m trying to process my precious Grandmother being in her last days, and on the other side trying to cherish these new memories with our twins. Getting to spend time with loved ones is so good for your soul. I hope you can soak in where you are and truly hold on to the dear ones around you. 🍂What’s something that you are thankful for today? .
Tears, of course, as I waved off Louise's tiny friends at school. Lou, Coralie, Bindi, Anna, Sam, James, Jules, Alijah,... they'll have a place in her heart wherever she goes. As of today I am homeschooling this precious little girl and as I filled out the papers I answered all kinds of questions but nowhere could I find the true "why".
Our sweet Cosette keeps on feeling unwell around here... we keep rebuilding that little house of cards but it just keeps on collapsing. God knows we have tried, we fought against it, but somehow it just isn't working.
We leave behind all that is heavy. We kindle all that is light.
Little Louise, we promise that we will make your goodbyes worthwhile. We promise to teach you beauty and love and truth. And we are so thankful for your big heart towards your siblings. 💙🦋

FLORAL PORTRAITS: @heyjencooper , you took my past year on the most wild of rides and — it’s been a thrill . ..
“Drawing with flowers” as floral portrait artist” is such a fascinating and challenging process to work with and if you’d like to work with me, please contact me through the floral commission page on my blog or DM
It was such a thrill to create this first public portrait one year ago for ultra creative —- stunning —- author, podcaster, artist and supporter of the arts @heyjencooper .I can’t begin to express my thrill when I hand art over that connects and makes you happy.
I wasn’t really prepared for what would follow this original public floral portrait; followed quickly by snow; and haven’t been able to keep up since summer — almost from the beginning —- because this was unplanned serendipity..
(Check out “Floral Art above” to see the slow process of placing petals in place) . .
But: good news if you wanted a portrait or commission and you’ve been on my waiting list — you should have received an email yesterday. If not, please DM me to make sure I have the updated contact information. You are at the top of the list . And, if you haven’t, I’m opening the list for new commissions Jan 15.
A good latte on a cooler than normal fall day was just perfect🍁

⚡️have you ever wondered how many miles you’ve walked? the memories stamped into the soles of your favorite shoes? It’s all pretty wild when you think about it — that time seems to move both fast & really slow with tons of things happening, people coming & going...
my mom keeps telling me that part of this move is about the unknown — embracing what’s no longer comfortable to me — & I can’t help but wonder the places these shoes will take me. I think of the timeless moments I will spend in them exploring, uncovering... being. if life is about the journey, don’t forget you’re allowed to lace your shoes up & go where you want⚡️ #perspective#tuesdaythoughts#foodforthought
Alie saiu da sua terra com sua irmã em direção a Europa com promessa de estudo e trabalho, mas no fundo elas sonhavam em deixar de padecer da fome profunda.
Assim que chegou Alie foi separada da sua irmã; "Ele disse que ela foi para uma tal de França", ela ficou na Espanha e não tinha mais do que algo próximo a 14 anos e sua irmã 16.
Como todas foi iludida da promessa de ajudar a família e com ganhos financeiros altos. "Se é bom para ela é bom para a família". Assim, seu aliciador ganhou mais 2 vítimas de uma vez só.
Ele arrumou os passaportes, passagens e explanou que tudo seria pago com trabalho em pouco tempo, só nunca disse o quanto devíamos pois, a dívida nunca cessou e só cresceu. "Fui colocada com mais 17 traficadas bem jovens, em uma torre de apartamentos. Todas muito assustadas e tinham olhar vago e indiferentes a tudo que as acontecia. Eu não as compreendia, nem elas a mim. "Todas falavamos línguas diferentes".
"Lembro do primeiro cliente ser muito mais velho. Em um quarto vermelho cheios de espalho vi várias versões de mim, as próximas que se apresentariam. Me tornei inúmeras".
"Nunca mais vi minha irmã".
"Eu consegui voltar a um lugar mais seguro mas jamais voltei e meus monstros caminham comigo junto a sombra de minha irmã que nunca apareceu".
Ps: Nem sempre precisa -se atirar para matar. A pior morte é estando vivo.
To give you some back story behind starting CopaceticBeings or COPA for short....
. The passion of connecting others as well as to promote positive change has been "the oil to keep my gears churning on a day to day basis.” I find true happiness in helping others to gain perspective other than their own because I believe that is a true recipe of unity.
. Copacetic Beings started off as a hashtag last year to create the idea of the life events you may come across one must remind and understand ones journey. As I expanded more with this idea the mission statement for COPA is to create and inspire a network of young entrepreneurs and influential college students by providing workshops and events to expel out positive change. My vision for COPA is to provide resources and networking opportunities to these individuals while raising awareness to any current topics/issues that are social and/or psychological.
