So last month was an awesome spontaneous Milk Happiness adventure. My daughter and I decided to go to a book event in New York City. We woke up early in the morning, made breakfast, and drove two hours to the event. Only to find out that the book event was in two weeks and we mixed up the dates.

Alarmed we looked at each other in disbelief and walked out the building in silence. I burst out laughing and said, “what just happened,” and my daughter smiled and said, “Mom lets milk this.”

We walked in the opposite direction of the car and decided to rent the NYC double bike across the street. With my daughter pedaling in the back and me in the front we experienced a beautiful ride around the city and near the water. As the wind blew our hair, we smiled and admired our alignment.

Sometimes things don’t go as planned but its how you react to the situation that makes the difference.
