My husband’s office decided to have a short day at work on Friday so that everyone could kick off the long weekend right. That afternoon, we sat on a bench in the playground watching my nearly 10 month old take a few steps. Yep, she’ll be walking any day now. While my nearly 5 year old ran around like a bat outta hell. Today was the anniversary of us arriving in New York. A year ago, we flew well over 18 hours from New Zealand to our new home for the next 3 months in Manhattan, followed by a quick and eventful trip to my parents in Montreal.
We were talking about how we should celebrate. We decided on an early dinner out at a restaurant I’d been wanting to try since we arrived in Brooklyn in December of last year. But, then my husband threw out, “What if we were to have a computer-free weekend?” I think I developed a bit of the cold sweats, but I agreed.
