I had big plans, as we all do, to change the world. Those plans ended up getting shifted as I got married and had three kids. So this bike-loving, eco-conscious girl had to trade in for three car seats and a minivan.
Instead of changing the world, I just… personally invested. I made my husband move us to an area where we can walk to and from school, rather than drive, and beginning in September we will do so, just under a mile each way, so 4 miles daily, with a big double stroller and a lot of heart and soul. And after a year-long crusade, I have turned my father-in-law from a car commuter into a daily bus traveler, from the Valley to downtown. He even has bus friends now!
I included a photo of me and my threesome and my big double stroller, and how we navigate the cityscape of LA by walking. It’s no small feat, but we’ve gotten very good at it. And I love not having to load and unload kids into cars when I can help it.
Carry on the good fight! And thank you.
