Shortly after moving to the bay area I joined the “Bay Area Young Moms Group” I found on meetup.com. I’ve never been apart of a mom’s group so I didn’t know what to expect. I thought it might be kind of awkward. Mainly because I like the idea of naturally meeting people vs scheduling to meet people, but I was SO wrong. I’ve been really blessed meeting such lovely ladies. Everyone is so willing and excited to plan fun get togethers. I love the enthusiasm that everyone shares. All the kids are so great too. I’m very thankful. I did notice though that since our children demand the majority of our attention, it’s difficult to actually carry out a full conversation with other mothers. So I set up my first meet up. A mom’s coffee night. We all met at Cocola Bakery for coffee and dessert. It kind of made me miss LA a bit because it reminded me of the bakery section at bottega louie. It was a bit chilly, but our warm drinks and good company kept us distracted from the cold for the majority of the time. It’s amazing how rejuvenated I feel after talking with adults about everyday stuff after talking to ONLY kids for almost the entirety of my day. Mom’s night outs are definitely a must!
P.S.
How amazing is the foam art on these bear lattes?! The guy did it all by hand with a mini milk pitcher! It made me want to look up how to do it online. This video is cool!

    Looks like you girls had a great night out. I absolutely love the first picture of the group! (It looks like a scene from a movie!) When I was in grad school I worked part time as a barista at a local coffee shop. I really enjoyed making all different types of latte art. The bear in your latte looks awesome!

  3. that foam art is awesome, i have never seen a teddy bear in latte foam! and what a great idea to be part of a mom’s group! that’s an idea that i will have to keep in mind for when i become a mama one day :)
