Holiday Wishes and Happy Memories

Celebrating both Christmas and New Year’s Day for the Coopers was always a little out of the ordinary. After going to Mass, part of the joy of our holiday season was to immerse ourselves in nature and hit the Santa Monica beaches running. With bathing suits under terry-cloth robes and our 2 Boxers in the car, we raced to the ocean and became 3 solitary members of the Polar Bear Club in the chilly Pacific waters. It wasn’t so much about presents and a beautiful tree but an exhalation of life and thanks for the ability to have and savor all that we were blessed with.
Simple gifts and eternal ones.
