Real Life Survival Guide Episode 7: Bishop's Orchards


It has become apparent (to me at least) that we are drawn to guest editors and locations because we love them. This week was no exception: Duo and I travelled to Bishop’s Orchards Farm Market in Guilford Connecticut to hear pitches from our host, sixth generation family member (and mother of 2) Sarah Bishop DellaVentura, along with freelance writer for (Patch.com) Sarah Kyrcz, stay-at-home dad Gerry McGuire, serial entrepreneur Ryan Duques, and the founder and president of Zane's Cycles, Chris Zane.

We continued our conversation about how much the world has changed, and the editors pitched questions about compromising with one's spouse or significant other, "play date" etiquette when dads are involved, learning how to "unplug" from technology, and keeping kids occupied on long trips.

This Week's Music
