TX M.I.L.K. Mom's Rock at SXSW
After the noise and craziness of SXSW, it was a wonderful experience to attend the TX M.I.L.K. (Texas Mom's I'd Like to Meet) event at Happy Salon and Spa.
Instead of the hectic energy and downtown venues of the rest of SXSW, this outdoor event felt like a gathering at a friend's home. Several bands played, including Charlie Belle and Karen Chisholm, while moms and kids (and a few dads) enjoyed samples of Tiny Pies and Better Bites cupcakes, all washed down with ice cold drinks from the huge coolers. It was cool and breezy, as we sat around pretty tables, or wandered around looking at the wares from vendors chosen to appeal to the mommy-set.
What a difference in mood from the rest of SXSW. Great music, bubbles and the sounds of kids filled the air. This was an event just for us moms! Married moms, single moms, moms of babies and moms of teens. Just moms. Now how cool is that?
Thanks TX M.I.L.K. Happy Salon and all the sponsors. This was a wonderful end to my first SXSW!
