As a young Mom in her 20’s, I would tell you that I never had free time. Time to reflect on what I liked to do, what I loved to be a part of, and what made me smile. In hindsight, now that I have time to get lost in my thoughts, my like, love and smile all came out of raising my kids. Everything about being a mother – from the mundane to the rip-your-hair out – was who I was and what I was all about. I loved being on the soccer field every weekend even when it was 40 degrees, I smiled from ear to ear while eating McDonald’s french fries at the Playplace, I liked working on school projects even though I always seemed to be racing to Walmart at closing time for one more piece of posterboard. It was who I was and I embraced it.
Now, as a 40+ year old, professional woman, there was plenty of free time and I’m not one to sit still. I had to figure out what to do with all this “extra” time. I started asking myself – What do you like? What do you love? What makes you smile? I already knew that I loved to travel but what else? I love being outside no matter what the weather as you’ll find out in my other adventures. I always smile when I’m with friends; they make me feel complete. I like entertaining. Put those all together and our Brewhouse was born. A place right in our own backyard to enjoy time with our friends, a good drink, and a place that feels far away.
The root of my like, my love, and my smile will always be my boys but, there’s so much more. So much more that makes me who I am and the discovery of that person is half the fun.
