Today’s post is a smattering of pictures from the past few weeks and Click my birthday wish at the bottom. 🙂 Enjoy!
So there you have it. Pictures from the past few weeks and my birthday wish.
As you may know, one of my goals for 2013 is to ride a bike again. Well, I’ve realized that it would be a tremendous asset to me if I actually OWNED a bike in order to reach that goal. I have found a wonderful bike already ready sitting at Cahaba Cycles. It’s a 7-speed purple (yay!) Electra Townie with a basket and bell already added. All it’s missing is purple handlebar streamers. 😉 This is perfect for those days when Millie and I want to cruise down to the park with our blanket, notebooks, music, and fruit. You all are welcome to join us any time!
This beautiful bike is a little out of my price range at $650. That is a lot, I know, but it seems to be around the norm for a good bike (I had no idea). My 38th birthday is coming up in a few weeks – February 8th. I am asking friends and family to consider donating to the cost of the bike in lieu of presents or parties. For those of you who donate, I will thank you publicly in the sidebar of this here blog, link to yours, repay you in hugs, and make something homemade for you.
I am really focused on my fitness this year. I want to lose 100 lbs, ride a bike again, work out more, etc. I’ve enrolled in 2 weight loss challenges already this year and this bike would help greatly with all of those goals..once I learn how to get back on the saddle again. It has been over 20 years – probably closer to 30 – since I rode a bike. It’s going to take some practice, some scraped knees (again), and a lot of determination. I have it. Now I need the hardware to execute it.
If you would like to help me reach this goal and contribute to the bike, please visit my fundraising page here: http://www.youcaring.com/help-a-neighbor/Birthday-Wish-A-Bike-/39870
Thank you so much for your help! As always,
Find peace inside.
