Enjoying the Ride, One Pedal at a Time

For those that tuned in this morning for my weekly movie review, I apologize.  However, you may recall that last month (Or was it December? The days are blending into each other.) I said I would be cutting back on the movie reviews and concentrating on more personal areas, which was the original purpose for starting this blog. 

Therefore, finding myself with 37 minutes of free time (Yes, that is an exact number!), I figured I would catch you up on what is new in my life.

First, many of you may not know that back in November, after nearly two and a half years of being out of the traditional workplace, I accepted a position working for a non-profit in its Development and Community Affairs department. I mainly work in fundraising efforts, including grant writing. I am enjoying it, but to say that my family got spoiled with me being at home is an understatement. We are all still adjusting. 

For that reason, my blog has taken a back seat most weeks. However, I am not stressing over it. I am enjoying my new adventure, and my blog will come along for the ride in whatever capacity it may be.  I do have a blog goal for this year and that is to re-design the site and, perhaps, move host platforms. I need to do some careful research on that. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to comment. 

A more personal goal is to get out "there" more, try new things, and build relationships with people that encourage me to do so. This brings me to the main reason for today's post. I would like to introduce you to my newest pride and joy.  A couple of weeks ago, I purchased a new bicycle, complete with a basket! When I saw this  lavender bike, it was love at first sight. (If it appears more blue in the photo, you can blame my cheap LG phone.)  

I still need to name her - any suggestions?

This is without a doubt the best money I ever spent.  I completely forgot how amazing it is to ride. I feel like a little girl again, and it is true what they say - you never forget how to ride a bicycle. AND, I'll admit, it doesn't hurt that I live in paradise and get to experience some gorgeous views at the same time. 

Well, my 37 minutes are almost up! Need to head to work soon. Until next time, stay well and pedal on!

  1. Sounds like a great new adventure with the bike! I am so jealous that you can ride and enjoy the beautiful scenery. I don't like in the country anymore and hate not seeing just fields and nature.
