Being Copal . . .

Some of our fondest memories - meaning Kaci (photo below) and I are the many moments we have spent on the coast of the Mayan Riviera in Mexico doing absolutely nothing for days . . . okay, not nothing.  Waking early for fresh squeezed fruit juice, spending the daytime hours with our toes in the sand, enjoying fresh from the sea ceviche for lunch (and maybe a cerveza or two) and laying on the beach at night under an endless blanket of stars intoxicated by the ancient scent of Copal incense burning in the distant jungle.  This was our busy daily agenda, sometimes for up to 10 days at a time, sheltered by a rustic, oceanfront cabana with no electricity.  Yes, that's no electricity.  No TV, cellphones, computers, air conditioning - nothing but the fresh sea air rustling through the palm trees and some good books and we LOVED it.  When the day came to head back to the noisy, bustling airport to return home it was always a somber one.

When we visualized the "vibe" for our space we wanted to recapture that.  Peaceful, relaxing, healing and naturally beautiful -- food for the soul.

We hope that our clients understand that we are so much more than just a hair salon.  The posts to this journal will reflect our thoughts and inspirations on life, beauty, health, wellness and of course, FOOD!

Our stories will hopefully invite all who encounter them to consider, create, reflect and even giggle now and again.  The goal is to remind all of us to see the beauty in the small things we encounter every single day and know that all paths lead to this very moment.
