The ties that bind us…

After a long day of homeschooling, real estate transactions, IT recruitment AND being mommy to dancing princesses -literally –Mini Me #2 Mini Me #2

it was nice to get out and take a stroll up to The Grounds Coffeehouse at the Skylofts. The atmosphere was everything you would expect and want in a growing city neighborhood.

Great music, comfortable seating, good conversation and best of all- well priced and made warm beverages! My daughters talked about the White Hot Chocolate on the walk home, and how I should have ordered another round ‘to go’ as well. I had a Mocha Latte with whipped cream and chocolate syrup… I almost ordered another when I remembered it was after 7; staying up to watch the walls at midnight was NOT an option.

The spirit of unity and ‘for the growth of OUR community’ resonated off the owners, Carlos and Tamara. You get a sense that it’s not all about the money for them.. and judging by the way my girls continued to beg me to buy cookies- for them either. (Thank you Tamara for the cookies!)

While my husband vibes with Carlos on topics ranging from Brooklyn, Redman to the changes in the West End… I was able to capture a mother son moment which made my heart proud. You can tell the two boys, (Harrison 10 and Benny 7) are proud of their parents, paving the way for these future entrepreneurs.

In all my picture taking, I neglected to capture a clear picture of Benny- who entertained my girls and has been officially deemed “the boy with the coolest cars”lol…. I’ll be sure to take another on my next visit.

I’m excited about this Coffeehouse, which caters to everyone; families, students, professionals, seniors and anyone in between. Stop in, I know you will agree it is certainly an added benefit to living in the West End.
