Me? A Barista? Whoo Hoo!

Saturday, April 07, 2012

It's like one of my dream jobs! A bucket list fulfillment! I get the opportunity to make people jump and jive with coffee or a smoothie or an italian soda or a latte, etc. etc.

Our church has a cool little coffee shop that sadly had been closed for the past year. A friend of mine was able to purchase it and do some major changes to the decor and such. I've always thought it would be fun to work part time in a coffee shop. It fits me in many different areas. But with a varied weekly schedule/activities and needing to be flexible for my mom who has dementia/alzheimers, my choices in part time work are limited. Also, my exercise time is pretty important as well. (aren't you happy to hear that sparkfriends?) : )

I offered to help my friend with the lettering that is needed for the menu boards this week and that always is a fun, creative outlet for me. Being artistic with lettering is a true joy for me. I knew that Sara was looking to hire baristas , but didn't want to take advantage of our friendship by asking if there was still an opening available to apply for. But; what the heck! Doesn't hurt to ask!

So I did. She did. I applied. I had a partial training this week; and I'm hired! Ya Hoo! I am so excited to start this new adventure! It will be great fun and Sara's vision is one I share. She really wants it to be a place where people connect with one another and a place where the Lord is glorified. I'm all about that. And, the name of the coffee shop is "Connect"

Oh. and to have a good cup of coffee!!

    What fun! You will be a blessing, I'm sure! So fun when God opens doors we only vaguely thought of knocking on! He knows the desires of our hearts! Happy Easter!

    Have fun!! That is one of my daughter's "dream" jobs. She keeps applying, but have been told that she doesn't have barista experience.
