i get around.

when i was ten years old i sold candy to strangers on a corner near my house. it began when i stole the candy my brother was asked to morp with, and it slowly turned into an honest business, much thanks to the various bulk options offered at sam's club. 
after a couple weeks of fairly successful amateur entrepreneurship, i had earned enough money to buy almost a whole bike. thankfully, my parents covered the remaining costs and I did in fact become the proud owner of an entire, fully functional, purple, sparkly, bicycle. needless to say it was my greatest treasure and i couldn't have been more proud. 

the purple beauty, with matching purple helmet, lasted me a good long time. we had some nice rides together. whether it was down the street or on the river trail, the purple bicycle never failed to please me.

that is... until I outgrew it. then began the age of the scooter. oh how i loved my little blue JD BUG. i thought i was so classy and mobile. 
however, soon i forgot about two wheeled objects all together and my desire for a car was born. 

when i was sixteen, i became the proud driver of a purple honda accord. this four-wheeled dream boat has brought me many a joys and countless memories. overall, it has treated me pretty well and i love it with all my heart even through all the bumps and bruises.

despite all this, for a few years now, i have found my desires reverting back to the candy stand days. i've been dying for a new mode of transportation... a sleek, shiny, adorable, classic and comfortable beach cruiser. as you may recall from this post.

much to my delight, my dreams have finally been realized. i am now the thrilled possessor of a gorgeous, turquoise, seven speed, classic, beach cruiser. and i honestly couldn't be more satisfied.
many many thanks to my parents who decided to treat me to my birthday present a month early so i could enjoy a little summertime with the cutie. i think i've taken it for a ride every day since we first met. neglect is not a concern in this relationship.

throw together my number one most desired object, my favorite color, a darling basket, a lustrous bell, the warm summer weather, and an open road, and you find me one hundred percent happy

i have to say, hands down, this is my absolute most favorite mode of transportation.
if you want to go for a bike ride. you know who to call. 

thanks again mum and dad.
