momma's night out with Elm Grove Art

I hope you are all enjoying your week! I figured since it's throwback Thursday it'd be a great time to recap our Momma's Night out at Elm Grove Art this past weekend. Elm Grove Art is a paint/craft/event studio owned by Katy Oberst and Danielle Heckenkamp. There's so much fun stuff happening here that I couldn't get enough pictures of this creative space. The entire studio is covered in art and it inspires both fun and creativity. I loved being able to be a part of such a wonderful event and I cannot wait until we plan the next momma's night out (we're looking at November)! 


I want to start off by saying that when I was asked to join the event and share about motherhood I immediately thought, what in the world could I possibly contribute? Most of the time I'm late or struggling to find balance with this little blog and all things motherhood. But then I was reminded that as mother's we are all in the same boat. And perhaps that's what I could share that we are not alone in this! So I agreed along with the amazing Amber Storm of Milwaukee by Storm to chat with all of the mother's that would be joining us. 


I have a mix of my cell phone pictures and camera (please excuse the quality on some of these :)). It was so wonderful being able to meet an amazing group of local momma's. Sometime's in the thick of motherhood it seems as if we are all alone. And although having online (Instagram/Facebook) mom relationships are good, having in-person connections are soooo valuable. 


Selfie's for the win! It was so great to finally meet this super talented and gorgeous momma, Ellia from Green Bean Baby and chat it up about Milwaukee and the needs among mother's in our city. Stay-tuned because there are some exciting volunteer events that are underway in hopes to connect our community together!


                                                                                     

And how cute is this candy bar?! It's also complimentary with any paint event. It's also nice to be able to share a cocktail or two! And don't worry if you're not the spirits type, they have non-alcoholic beverages as well.










               

I just love how Katy and Danielle have set-up this space! I wasn't able to snap any pictures during our group chat but it was a great bonding experience among all of us! And being able to share hilarious stories along with, "been there!" and other encouraging words really made the night for me.





We wrapped up the evening with some chocolates that were provided complimentary of Sendix grocery stores. And snapped a few pics of the group!


If you weren't able to make this last momma's night out I hope you're able to make the next! Katy and Danielle would also like to make it a recurring theme at their lovely studio and I think that is going to be a great way to help local momma's stay connected and have a little fun sans our kiddos!

Wishing you a great rest of your week!
