We asked some of our favorite folks what makes them happy and why?

MacKenzie Koncher | Artist, Intuitive Reader, Reiki Master, Paranormal Investigator, Underwriter

“What” makes me happy isn’t so much of a “what”, as it is a “who”, a “where”, a “when”…I am extremely blessed and fortunate enough to have so many special people in my life. Waking up next to my husband, Erasmo, or giving him a kiss when he gets home from a long day at work is one of the best parts of my day. Enjoying the experience of a delicious meal or tasty beverage with him, exploring a new town or city while traveling, or having mini adventures with him and creating memories makes me happy.

Hiking makes me happy. I first moved out west 11 years ago from the sunny beaches of South Florida. I remember the first time I went on a hike, I was scared of the bugs, the noises (“is that a mountain lion?!”), and I was huffing and puffing all the way. Fast forward, and it’s my zen and my happy place. Hiking, and being in nature, brings me peace and tranquility – it allows me to quiet my mind, and so much more! Lake hikes, waterfall hikes, forest hikes, desert hikes, hikes with an overview…there’s a hike for everyone! Always looking for new hiking buddies. Read more>>

Casey and Joey Mastreno and Andenucio | Nurse and Teacher Both Co owners and florists

Working with flowers. There is something so therapeutic about taking different types of flowers and greenery and placing them in a way that reflects our aesthetic and personality. Time together. With both of us having other jobs this business has given us a chance to have quality time together as we grow the business and reputation of the business. We get to work on the product, source goods for our shop, thrift vases, and brainstorm together. It doesn’t feel like work. It is us getting to do something we love together. Read more>>

What makes me happy!? Beach, Clouds, unique shaped flowers, trees, or rocks. Animals. Sunsets and sunrises. Paths without footprints. Nature in general. People come and go; most leave empathy space in you that comes with the lesson implemented in the future of life while taking away the trust. Read more>>
