There is not much I enjoy as much as sitting and talking, sharing ideas, laughing and learning. Regardless if my company is my family, friends or new acquaintances I find I never lose interest in the possibility of conversation, the meeting of minds and the potential for growth. One of my goals is to meet as many people in the world as I possibly can!
Add coffee or a nice glass of wine and conversation just seems to get better! So welcome to my cafe, my kitchen table, my front stoop. Think of all the places that talk just seems to flow naturally. We don’t often get a chance to do that in person, but now is my chance to do it here. I have always said I wanted to have a cafe, but I only wanted to have it open when I felt like cooking, when I felt like socializing and welcoming friends new and old. I guess you could see the potential for failure for a cafe that is only open when the owner is in the mood. Thanks to the beauty of the internet – my cafe is now open just the way I imagined it!!
I like to consider myself a renaissance woman, someone who has lived life to the fullest and followed the path wherever it lead me. I have worked in advertising, public relations, development, consulting, in a florist shop, as a substitute teacher, as a marriage and family counselor, as the facilitator of a family program and as a licensed realtor. I have been involved in dance, theatre, volunteer work, philanthropy and fund raising. I am married and a mother of three who loves traveling, reading, writing, cooking, learning, shopping and aspiring. Every time I became curious about something I took the opportunity to see how it fit into my life. Some things were passing fancies, some became hobbies and some helped me discover exactly who I was meant to be.
In my heart I believe each and every experience was necessary to lead me to where I am today. When I look back I have very few regrets and when I look ahead I am filled with excitement and wonder. In those rare instances when I stand still I work hard to focus on the present, to be mindful of where I am and grateful to be experiencing the now. My now.
Join me on this adventure, sit with me at my cafe. We will share thoughts, dreams, aspirations and recipes. I want to share all the parts of my life, the trials and tribulations of what it means when we say “we are all only human”. Some joy, some laughter, some deep thoughts and some questioning. Welcome to my next adventure!! xo
