Our Favorite Quotes

Standard

CopperLeaf Treasures was created by a desire of my sister and I to connect on a bigger level – live almost 2000 miles apart (for the last 30+ years) and see each other very seldom…tough to make that trip all the time so CopperLeaf Treasures is a way for us to have some fun, share moments together across the internet and in turn, learn more about each other.

So, this post is a listing of some of our favorite quotes! I’m amazed at how many Coni shared with me that I fell in love with for the very first time.
