The secret meadow trail ride with video

read

I’m not sure whether I should be patting myself on the back for hitting the bike trails pretty much every single day these days… Or ashamed of myself because I’m generally on those trails before I get a decent amount of work done. Whoops. I guess we may as well blame our improved weather. RIGHT […]

Rambling through a much needed mood boosting winter forest bike ride

read

Warning: this post rambles. It’s obvious this girl needed to talk. And you are the recipients! Welcome to my otherwise silent world. Land on my doorstep and I may talk your ear off… Yesterday AM, I woke up squinting towards my curtain-less bedroom window. Spotting a bright blue sky, the promise of sunshine was in […]

Lessons from the fall rain

read

I’m beginning to appreciate the many layers of fall. It seems like yesterday that I was moping about the heat of summer leaving us. It packed its shades and sunscreen and just flat out left our country seemingly overnight, leaving leaves all over the place in complete haste. The nerve! I guess that meant while I moped about being home […]

He bought his own camels, traversed through the Sahara […]

When the river runs dry.

Hello there! Wow, it feels good to tap some keys again! You may or may not have noticed I took a week off from all things blog. I could see my own tap was just running outta water and my mind needed to just live life without blogging about it for a spell. The little break […]

Ditching stress through the art of doing fun stuff.

read

Being that I bike ride nearly every evening, you’d think I’d see the same things each day while on the same trail. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth.  Through a ‘mindful’ course I’ve been taking, it’s really taught me to focus on something specific. And this special trait has me seeing the bike trail in […]

The lazy bike ride and the $56 doll.

read

I took nearly a week off from my beloved bike rides. A WEEK! I didn’t mean to take a week off. It just kinda happened.  When I was returning from the rides, it’s like I felt like collapsing. One evening I forced myself up the stairs, and threw myself on the bed fully clothed for […]
