Building A Reindeer

December 22, 2015

toddler activities, legos

Everything you can imagine is real.
~Pablo Picasso

We are building a reindeer over here today! Legos are just the best – they can become anything we want. We can create anything our mind desires out of just a few legos. The possiblities are truly endless, which is mind boggling when you really think about it.

And such is our life…we are basically a bunch of legos. We can become anything. We can create anything our heart desires. We really can, so start with your imagination. Start with your dream. And just start building…one lego at a time.

Believers In Magic…

Magic quotes, Inspiring quotes, happiness quotes, positivity
Happiness and Magic. They go hand in hand this time of year. Although we all know how easy it is to lose sight of that in the madness that is called THE WEEK BEFORE CHRISTMAS. Today I had to run to the post office to drop off Christmas gifts for my family in Colorado. Needless to say, I didn’t even make it in the door because I couldn’t even make it into the parking lot! It was so so so so so so crowded.

So we pulled a “U-ey” and tried our luck at UPS. Still a line, though not quite as bad (things are looking up!)…but I was still feeling super anxious, and stressed, and nippy. As I was scrolling through my phone trying to pass the time and not let my daughter see me standing behind her stroller (Does that ever happen to you? Sloane will be just fine chilling in her stroller UNTIL she catches one glimpse of me), I came across this little gem:

“I prefer the company of happy people who are believers in magic…
…and of magical people who are believers in happy.”

And my entire day turned around.

Just. Like. That.

I want to be that person – I want to know these people. I want to surround my daughter and my family and friends with that kind of energy.

So I will.

I hope this helps you today as you navigate the magical week before Christmas! Don’t forget, The Daily Soul Sessions For The Pregnant Mama is available in paperback and eBook HERE. Cheers, TDSS tribe!

Having A Dream

December 15, 2015


~Paul Coelho

And then it happens. My pulse races, my heart tingles, I take one deep breath, then another. We could never have made this dream come true without the help of so many people. But here goes…now YOU get to help send the dream out to the world!

The Daily Soul Sessions For the Pregnant Mama is here!

Please check it out – add a little soul warming cheer to your life this Holiday Season. Thank you all for the endless support – and no matter what – keep dreaming:)

Our first review is in!

“Being pregnant is hard – whether you have an “easy” pregnancy or an epically challenging one. These daily inspirations are just that – inspirations. The Coppola sisters have created a pause button for you to enjoy each day in your pregnancy journey. Reminders that you are still you, that you should celebrate the beauty that is you, and that you are literally creating life and what that means are at the heart of this book. This isn’t a “what to expect” book – this is a “remember to feel” book. Enjoy it. Take a moment each day to celebrate you, mama. These ladies have created a truly wonderful and enriching space for you to breathe in.”

Ghandi The Great

December 9, 2015

Ghandi quote, cute puppy

There is so much chaos going on right now…from world events, to politics, to plain old holiday madness, my brain is spinning.

I cuddled up in bed this morning, before the sun began to gild the trees around my house, before my daughter began to chat innocently with her loveys, before my husband stirred and rose to start another day…and I just breathed. In and out. Steady, slowly. Long inhale, longer exhale. Calming the internal anxiety I’ve been feeling over everything that is whirling around outside of my home today.

There’s so much that we want to see changed. But what on earth and in all of heaven can we possibly do about it? And it hit me, the simple words Ghandi said….

Be The Change You Wish To See In The World.

Ok. I can do that. I can be kind. I can be loving. I can be welcoming. I can be generous. I can be strong. I can be open…as we know, the best way to bring about change is to exude the qualities that make others want to emulate you. So that when they say, “she seems so happy, so full of joy” – they follow it up with, “I want to feel that too.” And then more and more people change….and are Loving. Welcoming. Generous. Strong. Open…

Cheers to change, my dears.

Oh, that’s my amazing pup, Cali. She was pondering the same big questions as me today 🙂
