Hi, I'm Karen. I'm a NJ transplant and mom of two girls, 1.5 and 4.5. We moved to Santa Monica 3 years ago and are loving LA. I'm also an event planner and throw grown-up style events with childcare at http://www.goodnesscreativeco.com/ if you're interested in joining any!
For now, I chose a weekly Wednesday morning meet-up spot at a cool coffee shop in Santa Monica that has a beautiful and largely unused courtyard, Metro Cafe. Parents can mingle without the worry of kids running away, as the courtyard is fully fenced in. We'll have other occasional meet-ups as well but I thought a regular one that you just come when you can could be really good thing for community building. I work there every Wednesday and put my youngest in the on-site childcare so you can always count on someone to talk to!
Really looking forward to making some great, local relationships in this group. If you have any questions or suggestions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Warmly,
My company, Goodness Creative Co. creates innovative grown-up style events with a separate childcare area (Goodness Kids) so adults can enjoy a fabulous experience and spend some quality time together.
At every Goodness Creative Co. event, optional Goodness Kids childcare will provide a safe and supportive environment with engaging activities for the kiddos so the adults can carry on in a light and easy atmosphere without worry. Check out our calendar and events in my other Meet Up Westside LA: Grown-Up Style Events with childcare or our calendar at http://www.goodnesscreativeco.com
