Hot Chocolate

Did you know Aroma Espresso Bar has a kids menu? I’ve been going there for years and just found out myself! To bring aware to #aromakidz they recruited a few of us moms to help spread the delicious word.

Find out here why I love taking my son to Aroma for lunch dates… hint: best hot chocolate!


Don’t forget to enter the latest Aroma contest! You can win a custom framed photo of your fam just like this one. Ottawa graphics designer Chelsea Lundy (@chelsdrawsyou) created this drawing on her iPhone. Yes, she drew that on her tiny screen!!! Her style is playful and totally captures the essence of my darling son, CJ and beautiful niece, Quinn.
