My new friend, Cat, was the winner of the $50 Stop & Shop Gift Card giveaway! She is the Mama Nut over at 4 Nuts in a Nutshell. Her blog is a great family-friendly read, so be sure to stop by and show her some love.
I've written a new NY Family Events article over at Examiner.com that lets you in on a secret: every third Friday, you can take the family to the South Street Seaport for FREE! This is during select hours only, so check out the article here.
So, after the spiritual high of reading Eat, Pray, Love, I've decided to stay in that same place and have just begun reading Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth. I read The Power of Now several years ago and it was without a doubt one of the most important books I've ever read. His book Stillness Speaks is one of those books that I bought years ago and waits patiently for me on my bookshelf. I probably should read that one first before reading A New Earth, but A New Earth is calling me, so I'm going to listen. I have a feeling that I am going to be grateful for the inner calm it is sure to bring me. I have quite a bit on my plate now and I will need a calm spirit to navigate through it all.
