I was working at the shop yesterday, when Tod messaged me and told me he’d gotten me a surprise. I love presents but hate surprises, but my guesses proved futile and I was forced to wait until I got home to see that he’d scored me a sweet bike!
It’s a rad Huffy Rally 3-speed that he got for free(!) and is in amazing condition considering the price tag. I love the bent back handlebars and the colors and yeah.
It’s been a long time since I’ve had a bike. (The last one I had was a garage sale-find from before Jonah was born and I’m not sure the tires were every properly inflated because there was nowhere to ride where we lived in Richmond. Then I got pregnant…) Not only am I looking forward to the exercise and fresh air, but it’s a very practical solution for getting around in a town that’s only about two miles long.
So yeah, I’m pretty happy with my surprise. ;)
PS: I also updated my Etsy shop with a few more Recycled Art Journals this weekend! Stop over and take a look if you’re in the market for a new one for yourself, or if you’re looking for a gift for someone special in your life. There are currently over 40(!) one-of-a-kind Journals currently available, with plenty of colors and themes to choose from!
