And yep, it's Monday again, which means a biiiig cup of coffee at the Kosmas Flores household. Jeremy made a great egg + potato breakfast this morning before heading off to work, and I promptly doused it in my fermented cayenne pepper hot sauce. 🍳 For me, potatoes + eggs + chilis are the ultimate breakfast trifecta. What about you? Any breakfast faves? πŸ˜›

Coming back home to a very wintery Oregon has definitely made my daily hot beverage intake skyrocket, there's nothing quite as effective as warming yourself up from the inside out! πŸ”₯
.
Today we're taking our coffee + tea on the go, since Jeremy and I are heading to the homestead property to check on it after the snowfall that happened while we were out of town. Who knows, there might even still be a bit of snow out there! πŸŒ¨β„οΈβ˜ƒοΈ
.
After that it's hang out time with my girl @andreabemis, and then heading back home to catch up on a wee bit of work.πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»
.
Happy Sunday friends, hope you have some fun plans in store! 😊

Heading back home to Oregon today and can't wait to see the dogs + our kitty again. Mexico was fun and beautiful, but there really is no place like home πŸ’šπŸ‘πŸ’š
.
Also, I'm doing an instagram Live tomorrow at 11 am PST, it's an open Q&A so come with some questions in mind! If you can't make it live but have a question, just leave it here for me to answer. I'll be leaving the Live up on my stories all day tomorrow so you can watch it later, WOOHOO! 🌟
.
And if you're eyeing this lush green dish, it's the smokey caesar salad that's up at AdventuresInCooking.com 🌿 It's got charred lemon juice and smoked paprika in the dressing for a little extra kick, along with the traditional caesar goodness like parmesan, anchovies, and extra virgin olive oil. Perfect for a little something fresh + packed with flavor πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

Miss these little fluffs and this bed so much. When I think back to how this room looked when we moved in 5 years ago (you can peek at it in my stories), it really makes me proud of how much we've made this old house a home of our very own. 🌿
.
Now we're starting from absolute scratch with our homestead, and by that I mean it's 29 acres of clear-cut stumps with no structures on it whatsoever. But that's just for now. We're working on planting lots of native trees + plants over the next year, and then eventually we will build our own home, and then lots of little accessory structure cabins. 🏑
.
My dream is to be able to host workshops + retreats at the homestead, welcoming people into our beautiful natural forest oasis, and sharing our little bit of woodland paradise with them. 🌲 It will take a lot of hard work and gumption to get us there, but we're ready for the ride! πŸ‘πŸΌ
.
Being able to bring the land back to its natural forest state, and share that beauty with others is the biggest reward I can imagine. 🀩 Life's too short not to dream big, right??? πŸ’š

In the enneagream world, I'm a 3 with a 2 wing, which is called 'the hostess'. In 100% honesty, there is nothing that gives me more happiness than creating a wonderful experience and watching others receive joy from it πŸ’— The same goes for teachingβ€”seeing someone finally have that 'aha!' moment is one of the most gratifying experiences I can describe 🌟
.
If you want to have a specially curated once-in-a-lifetime experience, I'd love to have you join me in France. There are only two spots left, and I have an absolutely incredible creative journey in store for you! Imagine all the care and attenton that I put into each image, but put into an entire 5-day long immersive experience filled with beautiful settings like this one, incredible food, and the rolling hillsides of the French countryside. 🌿
.
There's also something to be said about hands-on leaning that no amount of online education can replace. Having someone show you a skill in-person, and be able to troubleshoot any issues you're having right there on the spot, is invaluable in the learning process. πŸ™πŸΌ
.
And if you already feel confident in your photography skills, this is a great opportunity to build your portfolio with gorgeous imagery, connect with like-minded creatives, and up your social media + business game. β™₯️ You can get more info + sign up via the link in my profile πŸ‘†πŸΌ
.
@thepineapplechef and I would love to host you in France, you can sign up via the link in profile and message me with any questions πŸ₯° See you there, my friend!!!

It's been a while since I hosted an IG Live, but that is about to be remedied!! πŸ’« I'll be Live this Saturday at 11 am PST, and am going to be answering whatever questions you want to throw at me for 1 hour, woohoo!!!
.
I'd love it if you left some questions below to get me started when the live kicks off, there's always that first few minutes when folks are jumping on that I'd love to be able to fill with actually helpful advice + info πŸ₯° I'm really excited to talk with you guys and 'see' you then!
.
P.S. If you want a little bit of the liquid sunshine in this photo, head to AdventuresInCooking.com for a little sumo citrus agua fresca recipe! It's sweet, bright, refreshing, and perfect for getting you through those dark winter days 🧑🍊🧑

A lovely ombre latte to greet you with today, and a plush and chunky knit blanket to keep you cozy along with it! β˜•οΈ I hope you're all staying warm as various snow storms and cold weather madness rips across the globe.
.
I got a video update from our friend who went to check on our chickens yesterday and they were all happy as clams! It seems they couldn't care less about the snow, and just want to keep eating their food and laying eggs, which is exactly what I hoped they'd be doing πŸ₯°
.
My mom sent me some text messages of the dogs the first day we were here, but no photos yesterday (I'm ready for more, mom! Hehehe!) 🐢 Definitely miss our little fluffy family but am still loving it here. Today we're going to the Puerto Vallarta Botanical garden and I am SOOOOO excited to nerd out on 64-acres of lush tropical plants (also thank you in advance for Jeremy's patience every time I point and exclaim "Look at that orchid!!" a bare minimum of 30 times) 😬
.
Also, thank you guys SO much for your outpouring of excitement about the shooting surface guide I shared yesterday! Some of you have already made yours, and they look amazing!!! If you want to grab it, you can get it via the link in my profile πŸ‘†πŸΌ
.
Wishing you all a wonderful start of the week!!! β™₯️

Today I'm sharing a FREE guide to how I make my shooting surfaces! I have a time-lapse of me making the surface in the above photo, plus a guide with step by step instructions, an 'ingredient' list with links, and my tips for creating a lovely and versatile surface. πŸ’«
.
You can grab it via the link in profile! πŸ‘†πŸΌ
.
Making your own shooting surface is a great way to create a recognizable and consistent visual style unique to you and your images. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ They’re super affordable to create, and I recommend making yours double-sided, so you have two shooting options in one!
.
I'd love to see the the shooting surfaces that you make in action, you can tag them with #FirstWeEat and I'll share my faves on my instagram stories! I can't wait to see the awesome surfaces you create!! 🧑

A little peek at most days at home, they almost always involve cooking + a hot cup of tea or coffee (subbing in an iced version during the few months of hot weather). Right now, Portland is on the brink of the biggest snowstorm it's seen in recorded history, however, and Jeremy and I happened to time it perfectly with our annual winter pilgrimage to the sun. β„οΈπŸŒžβ„οΈ
.
We landed in Puerto Vallarta yesterday, when Portland was supposed to get it's first of many days of snowfall. πŸ“ We set up everything in the coop for the coming cold weather, including heat lamps, a heating pad, an insulated water dripper, and we have a friend who's going to stop by and check on them every couple days to make sure they're holding up.
.
I'm most nervous about them and the spring flower bulbs that started poking their heads out of the ground because of the (up until this point) unseasonably warm winter. I didn't tarp them like I did during last year's snow storm because I didn't want to suffocate them for a whole week, but I'm hoping that since it's going to hover around 30 degrees it won't be so cold that they'll get major damage. 🀞🏼
.
It's all out of my hands now anyway, so I'm just going to focus on enjoying our vacation and sending positive thoughts back home to all our friends + family + homestead. Wish me luck, friends!!! 😬
