“Kupari” is the Finnish word for Copper and has deep meaning to me.
In my eyes, copper stands for home, heritage, and family. Being from Michigan’s Copper Country, there is nothing more beautiful than the nature, history, and fortitude of the area.
Although I now live many miles away from the tranquil beauty of the area, I wanted to remind myself and share with others to take a moment and enjoy the simple joys around us in the world.
For me, the “ilo” or joy is found in the simple, quiet moments. In time spent with family or my little helper Houdini, listening to music and the sounds of nature with a warm candle at my side and a tranquility in my heart.
