living a well tended life... at any age

at the corner of parenthood and plans

So remember my bike trip around Manhattan?

Well, I did it (kind of)!

Seems that – as usual – parenthood intervened to teach me that: a) I am most definitely NOT in charge of my plans, and b) a change in plans often works out even better than expected.

I’ve posted Part One on Go Mighty today, and I’d love you all to take a look (Update: here’s Part Two!)!

And speaking of parenting………

The lovely folks at Limetree have given me five vouchers for Premium accounts to give away to my readers. Limetree is a wonderful app that allows you to create a “timeline” of moments in your children’s lives –  photos and videos, as well as sound clips and even notes to your child (you can read more in the post I wrote about Limetree a few months back).

Simply leave a comment here, and the first five readers to respond will receive a voucher.

Hope you’re having a great week!

    Off to go look at your post and to check out Limetree. Parenting has taught me nothing ever goes as planned (including when you get pregnant)! Somedays though I want to throw caution to the wind and just bike around Manhattan as well. But that would require me to actually be in NYC, not out here in LosAngeles! xo
