Coopie Pizza Co. - Celebrating Dad's Birthday
Happy November all! (I can’t believe it’s almost the end of 2018…Where did the year go?)
With the world moving at a hare like speed, in October, my family and I took an afternoon to celebrate my father’s birthday. My parent’s have been working and redoing the entirity of the back yard, and have installed a large oven that is equipped for a fireplace, a pizza oven, and a grill on the right size. With being a designer, I decided to brand it and call it “Coopie Pizza Co.”. I made an apron for Dad for father’s day and thus Coopie Pizza Co. was born. It’s not an actual company but indulge with me for a second.
Dad’s wishes for his birthday was to see if we could get the pizza oven going and to have homemade pizza’s for his birthday. And when you’re a wendling and a boyd (I didn’t plan that) you make things happen. Pizza can sometimes be a communal thing, there’s a process, a mixture of ingredients, and a beautiful sense of togetherness in sharing a pie. These moments are always an ode to Sunday dinners with my grandparents, in which sometimes included pizza from our local pizza joint. Heck, when I was coming home for grandma’s funeral, we were all so tired, we ordered pizza and remembered grandma. Alright, no more tears, lets get on with the pictures shall we?
