Spending Ban Week #9 – My Amazing Christmas Gift

So I was completely surprised on Christmas day when Nick and his family revealed that they had bought me a new bike!


My bike was a cheap one that I had gotten on Craigslist and really isn’t the right size for me. I love riding but it is just a little uncomfortable for me. Now I have a beautiful bike that is the correct size for me.

BONUS – it appears that Comet is also a big fan of my bike as he took off down the driveway next to me. This got me thinking about getting an attachment for my bike so that my dogs can safely ride alongside me this spring. I just need to work with them more on their heeling to make sure that they can do it safely.

I am so excited for spring and summer – I will be putting a lot of miles in on this bike.
