Bike

I cannot believe I've had my bike since the beginning of the summer and this is my first time posting about it.  Shame on me.  I had been looking for a reasonably-priced vintage-style bike for the past few summers, but a purchase never worked out.  This year, I was determined to get my bike.  Fell head over heels for this one when I spotted it at Target.  



Honestly, it's only been out for a few short rides.  Every time I get on it, I feel all sorts of happiness and freedom.  Followed by muscle strain and a racing heart beat.  I didn't buy the bike to get in shape, only for fun.  Something active I could enjoy doing all by myself...or with others if the opportunity ever arose.


Steve and Miles have been enjoying Saturday mornings at the park lately.  Since I slept in a bit later than they did, I met up with them later on my bike.  It was a very nice ride...but a little humid.  Maybe I'll get a little more riding in come fall....maybe. 


Oh, the little things in life that bring me so much joy....


Miles wasn't a fan of the basket.  But wouldn't that have been SO cute?

He is SO cute in that basket!

And how on earth do you manage to always look adorable even after a humid bike ride? I'm jealous. :)

Love your dog!

I have a vintage Schwinn bike that I've been using right now. I definitely need to get a basket for mine though--it's so cute and functional!

I adore your bike! I have a Schwinn as well, but a ten speed style. Not conducive for cute baskets with cute dogs in them. Cute!

Ms. Bombshell:

If I recall correctly, I got this shirt at Stella Blue...little boutique on Grand Ave.
