Minimalists. Explorers. Creatives.

Hey there! We’re Bekah + Sam, two creative souls learning what is means to slow down and live intentionally. In an ever quickening society, we hope that our journal offers a respite from the clutter – a safe haven for the mind. An avenue through which we can discuss travel, life, and the merits of minimalism. Most of the time you’ll find us barefoot on a mountainside or camped in a coffee shop drinking our favorite brew. We live on the beautiful island of Kaua’i with our marshmallow of a pup, Kala, and hop on airplanes to new places as often as we can.

Bek is a sun loving, coffee drinking, creative who believes that air, fruit, and flowers should always be fresh. Sam is a free-spirited adventurer forever in search of the next big wave. And Kala is a dog, so she really just eats food and follows us around.

Life is what you make it.

We firmly believe that this life has a purpose and we were given one shot to make it good.

It’s a big world out there.

We’re adventurers, not afraid to get dirty to have a little fun. “It’s a dangerous business, going out of your front door …” but of course, that’s where all the fun happens.

The Cooper Journal – a travel blog, a lifestyle blog, a blog to share our love for this life and the people in it.
