Living In My Dreams

I have worked at Coco Bean Cafe for over a month now. I started writing this blog a while back but just now have been able to post it. Can I just say how thrilled and brilliantly changed my life is now that I have purpose and complete fulfillment. My bosses, the owners of Coco Bean, are incredible people and I am so blessed to have a great relationship with the owners. It makes my job and experience as their Barista manager so amazing and enjoyable.

When we started getting to know each other and getting the coffee shop organized and ready to open and started it was like the three of us were all on the same page and things have run so smoothly. The training process of our other employees have gone awesome as well. I have been doing most of the training process and its been so much fun. A little overwhelming at times, but it was like I was MADE for this. I never realized I could be a manager or have so much responsibility and hold my head above water at the same time, but this experience has been awesome and much easier than I expected.

The coffee shop in and of itself is so comfortable and gorgeous. With soft coffee colors painted on the walls, huge windows that face the front, it provides an atmosphere full of life comfort. I hope to get pictures up soon, but have not gotten around to taking any yet.

The mornings come so graceful. I rarely see my first customer until 7am, and we open at 6:00am. Mornings have not been too hard on me. I actually love them now. Never thought I would see the day, but it does help to love what I do and that is a huge motivator for me to get up and moving so early in the mornings.

Well, that is it for now. I will probably have a lot of time on my hands this coming week due to traveling to Connecticut for the week with my husband so I hope to write again soon!
