If I ever decide on a career, move out of my parents house, and get a job with a decent salary-- I'm buying this.

goodmorning, i am alyssa. said...

oh my word. A. I love that bike. I want you to have it. B. that bike path on that girl's blog? I WALKED PART OF THAT YESTERDAY WITH MY BROTHER and both of us really wanted to bike it. If you and I ever have money we should fly across the country and bike that. C. I love biking. I am slow and I wear dresses but its so much fun because you get this nice breeze and you are going fastish but at the same time you are being semi-lazy and you can watch the scenery. Its so nice.
ps I miss you. Day one I am back, lets hang.
