Coffee Break Fest 2019 – Once again was a fabulous festival! They sold out of their coffee sampling mugs (500?!) and pig roast. We were surrounded by friendly and fun people, music, artists, and cars all day long. Winner of the coffee contest was Valentine Coffee. No surprise here. They had some tough competition, but their coffee is SO good! They are my second favorite coffee brand. (My absolute favorite is Collectivo.)
I gathered all of my mugs and was proud to see we have been a part of six past Coffee Break Fests. How awesome is that? (Answer: It’s super awesome!)
Thank you to everyone who organized and put together the festival, visited us at our booth, tried some coffee, ran in the 5k, looked at some cool cars, or just came out to the festival! This is a great community!
Back to School – Our DD went back to school last week. It is her first year of all day school. So far, she loves it, but it has come with a bit of stress and anxiety as well. And a little sniffle-y cold that we have been remedying with elderberry syrup and lots of hugs.
I also went back to school this week. I am taking some courses in bookkeeping. So far, so good. Always busy.
Fall – It’s coming. I’m loving it. People are already complaining about pumpkin spice. But, I. Am. Loving it!
I’m getting ready for Coffee Break Fest this Saturday, and this pretty little lady is helping me stay focused. Also pictured, mugs from the past years of coffee tasting. LOVE this festival! Stop by between 9am and 3pm. See many talented craft fair vendors, stroll through the car show (both vintage and new models!), eat some delicious food, and taste some FANTASTIC coffee!
It took so long for summer to arrive. We had 3.5 months of ugly spring. It was cold and it rained constantly. Now it is full-blown SUMMER!
Thank the Lord for beautiful, wonderful-smelling flora! For weeks we had blooming lilacs (and whatever this pink tree is) lifting our spirits from our yard. Whenever possible, I walked up to the closest lilac bush and fully inhaled the heavenly aroma. Our neighbors may have thought I was a tad kooky. Ah, well. Talk about a mood booster!
DD’s school let out at the end of May. I have been scrambling to get into a decent sewing routine ever since. Between swimming lessons, library visits, playground adventures, and kitchen table crafting sessions, my dear little sewing business has been cooling on the back burner. However, I am not stressing over it. It won’t become sour like old coffee. No. It will steep into a rich, warm tea. I promise!
Speaking of coffee (the good kind!), the giggleFritz and Co. booth will be at Coffee Break Fest in Stoughton, WI on Saturday, August 17. It is always a great time! Come see all of the new Socktopus guys and Sock Monkeys and taste some fine coffee.
I am off! It’s time to hone my time management skills, machine sew a new sock monkey, and make some dinner for my family too! Have a lovely weekend!
This morning I was taking a peak at Facebook when I came across Stoughton’s 21st annual Coffee Break Fest Event. SIGN. ME. UP! I did! I responded as “going” and I will get the registration papers in for the giggleFritz and Co. booth.
