As most of us do, I wear many hats in life: mom to a toddler, baby and two furry children; wife; professional communicator; super – woman, mom, friend, family member, stranger, (insert your favorite description here). For those who know me well know I drink an unhealthy amount of coffee….at all hours of the day.

After moving miles away from friends, family and a sense of comfort, I craved interaction and conversation. I also found myself with a nine month-old daughter, a husband working too many hours. I began frequenting coffee shops and listening. What I found was more than just conversation and interaction; I found life lessons we can all benefit from.

About the blog
This blog is a series of stories through the eyes of that dark, brewed liquid in my cup. It’s a way to share stories about the ‘Average Joe’ from a cup of joe.

While we may all be at different points in our lives, it seems we are all looking for the same things.  And, these stories are proof.

Please feel free to comment, share, like, dislike, disagree or contact me.

Have a great coffee shop story to tell? Please drop me a line  or spill the beans!

    You are an incredible writer who inherited her father’s skills. I am very proud to have you as my daughter and to be your mother!

    Still in search of the perfect brew, I salute your dedication. I make mine the old fashioned way by graunching up beans and using a plunger. Possibly over-strong (the spoon leans gradually to the side and cats can walk across the surface) but chewy is how real coffee should be* … good luck!

    *And sleep is vastly overrated.
