Yes, I'm glad to see you.

Has anyone ever been a bike rider?

Not just owning a bike, but having a passion for being on it?

I have. I LOVE my bike.
No seriously there's something about bike riding that just grounds me. It makes me feel so connected with myself. Last summer, I woke up at 5am every morning just to have a good 45 minutes alone with my bike before work. The quiet and stillness of the morning just always was such an amazing way to start my day.

I ride a vintage schwinn world tourist, with a basket on the front. It has my heart.

I've been dying for sunny days to come so I could ride, but for some reason even though they came my poor bike just sat there, staring at me.

I accidentally left it out in the rain a few days ago and felt really bad. Today I came home from work and just really wanted to be outside. I had to run to the grocery store and pharmacy to pick a few things up. I decided to take my bike.

Thats all I needed. One good ride. And I fell in love all over again.

Ugh. seriously. just pure joy.

Hope your week started as lovely as mine!
