From Café With Love is all about taking the time to recognize all of the little moments that make life so sweet. For me and my circle, these moments have begun at the café. Let me tell you how this all got started.
Why We Have Come to Be
So, I met a boy (man)…
We got married, moved around the country a few times with the last move bringing us to Italy. Now, I take being a wife and mom seriously and I thought there was nothing more. There was something about the slow pace of the country that made me realize how wrong I was. My idea of time well spent was watching Netflix on the couch with everyone in the room or going to the store as a family. I was wrong.
Our family would wake up on Saturday mornings and eat breakfast, quickly clean up around the house and get ready to explore the world for the day. It was difficult adjusting to the European riposo time from 12:00- 3:00 p.m. Eventually, we got our routines together and this new routine included the local café. We enjoyed the café and Aperitivo experience of Italy so much that it became a weekly occurrence of coffee and spritz with our friendly baristas in our tiny town. Going to the cafe offered us the opportunity to talk about our week, discuss budget and finances, travel plans, and even dreams deferred.
The cafe has presented us with the gift of togetherness. For my husband and I, it has been such a sweet opportunity to listen, brainstorm, and collaborate. The cafe has also been a great place to come together with friends to just simply be. Community is the gift of the cafe and it is freely given with love.
As we embark on our next journey, it is my mission to share with you the gift of the cafe. The cafe can be appreciated it no matter where you are in life and in the world.
