And a special shoutout goes to Kia. Yes, Kia. The car brand. They’ve actually sponsored this Blue Bike Ridealong by letting our family drive a 2015 Sorento up to New York City and back to Austin, and for this 11-year-old minivan-driving family (who happily does so, by the way), the experience has been surreal.
Heated seats? Bluetooth capability (aka, movies on the iPad connect to the built-in car speakers)? A full-length sunroof? An SUV that’s actually SIX SEATS but is still small? Yes, please. Trust us, we’re easily pleased with doors that all work and an AC knob that doesn’t have a penny permanently wedged inside, so this is a serious treat. Thanks, Kia people.
This afternoon we’ll be in Nashville—we’d love to meet you! The Well Coffeehouse, 3-5 p.m., the whole family welcome. Buy a drink, bring your book if you want it signed, and let’s hang out! And then tomorrow (Sunday, February 16) we’ll be at Amelie’s French Bakery—the downtown Charlotte one—from 4-6 p.m. Same thing: bring your book and family, buy a pastry, and let’s chat!
I’m also loving all your #NotesFromaBlueBike Instagrams! Don’t forget, you have until the 17th to IG a pic of you and the book or an actual blue bike, and one person a day will win an Enjoy the Ride necklace from Lisa Leonard!
