August 29, 2019 – Coffee Break Fest, Back to School, AND Falling Forward

Hello! Just a little update…

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!

August 13, 2019 – Coffee Break Fest Prep

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!

Coffee Break Fest Review

How was the Coffee Break Fest Craft Fair in Stoughton, Wisconsin on August 15th, you ask?  I, of course, will say it was a blast!  It always is. Even though the temperature was around 90 degrees F with very little breeze, it was another great year.  The community of this town is wonderful! I sold a few things, saw some familiar faces and sampled some great locally roasted coffee (I brought along a container of ice for iced coffee, but one competitor had iced coffee for sampling too.)

This guy was pretty awesome!  He not only bought one of my Socktopus guys, he improved on it and showed me the very same day!  He bought the Socktopus and left.  He, then came back to show me he added adhesive hook and loop to the legs and stuck it on his hat.  That is a cool customer!

This year I splurged and bought the collector’s mug.  It is a beautiful handmade mug that holds ALOT of coffee. A nice addition to my ever-growing collection.

My sisters and I had a great time again this year.  I am planning on returning again next year. I will just pray harder for beautiful weather.

Have a great day!
