I’m Alive!!

Hi!! I’m back! Sorry for the abrupt break from blogging, I didn’t intend to take a month-long hiatus from this blog, it just happened! Thanks to everyone who inquired what was going on and wondering where I’ve been. I’m alive and well! Life is pretty crazy and full these days. I had no idea I was gone for so long! I really enjoy blogging, but keeping up this blog takes me 20 hrs a week and, frankly, with work and traveling and a pretty huge project that I’ve been working on, it was nice to take a little breather! What’s the new huge project, you ask? I can’t reveal it just yet, it’s a secret for now! But its keeping me plenty busy, keeps me up late into the nights and saps me of most my energy. It’s the biggest project I’ve ever worked on and I’m super excited about it! Can’t wait to share it with you all!

Even though I took a break from blogging, my love for bicycles hasn’t waned. I was shopping at Target last week and stumbled on this beautiful bicycle pillow!

Lord knows I do not need anymore pillows, I have way too many and most of them are in storage now because there just isn’t enough space on the couch or our bed.  Plus, I usually choose to save money and sew my own custom pillows (like these, these, these, and these), but I’m a sucker for anything with a bicycle on it so it had to come home with me! The gray matches our gray couch perfectly!!  I also walked out of Target with a bunch of other things I didn’t need like two picture frames, cute gift wrap and a box of gold fish crackers. Sigh, Target is my weakness!

This past Mother’s Day, I’ve had a new appreciation for all the love and sacrifice moms everywhere make for their children.  I don’t know how mothers do it, they are my heroes!   I’ve been really blessed with an awesome mother who has always made sure that my siblings and I had the best of everything.  She always put our needs above her own and our childhood was happy and carefree because of it.  I hope one day to be as good of a mom as she is!  Anyways, I was looking for a card to send her last Sunday and found this cute bicycle card!

It was perfect for her! Thanks, mom, for everything you do!

Anyways, I hope to be back blogging more regularly now!   Posts may not be as frequent but I’ll try not to drop off the face of the earth again! Thanks for bearing with me and for reading along!!
