Coffee with Friends

I can't help but feel massive pride today.  After 5 long and sometimes lonely weeks,  my Sassy made new girlfriends!

Even I, expressive/expressive type A extrovert, have to admit that moving 1,600 miles away from home and making new friends would be hard.  It would be one thing if you had a "thing"... "I'm a pediatric neurologist working on a grant to treat blah, blah, blah..." but for all of us totally ordinary people, it can be hard.

So she led with what she is FANTASTIC at... being a momma.  She hit a home run.

I had planned to take over on my visit and knock on every door around her to introduce her.  I'm certain she is so glad that won't happen now.  Or maybe I still will, just for fun.  :)

Not only did she make one friend but she found a group.  And of course, they totally embraced her and Nugget.  Because she is fabulous.  Of course I may be biased. 

Oh, and apparently she found a totally cool coffee place with a kid's playplace in it.  How genius is that?!?  I think I could franchise that here in the midwest... I know a lot of stay at home's that love coffee and are looking for ways to offload their kids for 30 minutes or so (or 4 hours... I'm not judging).

Java Mama.... I am TOTALLY loving this place!

I could just hear the excitement in her voice yesterday as she told me about her adventures.  I'm so happy for her.  My cup runneth over today!

Happy Wednesday, friends!

  1. YAY!!! I knew she would make friends. Is the coffee shop on base? Don't know if you know this or not but I have had a dream to open a coffee shop/mercantile for EVER. I like the kid twist. As a stay home Mom who has lived away from family for most of the time that I've had kids(and had a VERY hard time making friends) I would have LOVED to have had someplace like that!!!
