I miss you 'a-latte'

I'm seriously missing work today guys..

Its been exactly 18 days since I was behind that counter slinging java drinks and damn I'm jonesing to get back.

I just love hospitality so much.

Remember last year when I tried to move industries? That failed miserably haha but I learned a valuable lesson and returned to what I know and love.

I think I just lost my passion for a wee while and that's ok, but I'm glad it wasn't forever.

Making someone smile at 7am by remembering their drink order and serving it up with some friendly chatter, really brings a smile to my face.

I've spent over 16 years in the hospitality industry and I'm fast realizing that that won't be changing any time soon.

One of my goals in the industry, a close second to owning my own bar/ cafe, or even a B&B, is to work for Disney.

What better time than now to plan your dreams?!

Last week I wrote up my application for a position on the Disney cruise ship. I mean, it stops by this region of the world anyway, so why not hop on board and gain some valuable skills in customer service.

Obviously not till this whole pandemic is at bay and even then, not for a while after that. I'm really happy at my job and just love all my coworkers so much, but maybe sometime in the future, between leaving there and starting my own venture. Just maybe I could do a little magical stint with the happiest place on earth.

Fingers crossed.

In the meantime, I'm going to daydream about being back at the local cafe and living it up with the best food & beverage team in View Royal.

And maybe I'll make a shaft because YOU know hehe

Love xo
