new wheels

Yesterday was such a strange day. Good strange in some ways, and awkward strange in others.

One of my customers who works at the bike shop down the street showed up with a bike for me. I was not expecting it at all. We had a conversation a month or so ago about how I would love to get a bike but I just didn't know the first thing about how to pick one out. So, he gave me his old bike that he had fixed up. He said it fits me (size wise) perfectly. I really don't know how to repay him... I am so excited about this though.

My youngest brother is in high school, and he is taking an auto body detailing class. I'm going to have him take the bike in and paint it for me for free. I want it to be black and shiny. I'm going to get a basket for it, and a tan leather seat.

Hopefully, I will be able to make it look as cute as that bike. I haven't ridden a bike in years - so it might take some practice!

I'm so excited!


  1. Careful not to fall off and wrinkle your bone!

    Also, you should def. invest in a good lock, because getting your bike stolen is one of the worst feelings ever, plus ya gotta walk home to wherever you rode from!

  2. hahahaha, oh my god. I can't believe you remember that!
