Learning Lessons

Learning Lessons

I’ve found myself in a place of learning lots of brand new things right now. Horsemanship lessons. Story writing.

And now...weird vintage Italian motor bike riding....

A couple months ago I shared this photo of myself with my brand new (to me, it was actually made in 1978) Puch motorized bike. I had not ridden it until Monday.

It has pedals, it’s just a bicycle....eh, not exactly.

I’m currently modeling my own business strategies around watching her for so many years. Today is the little boys’ last day of daycare. They’re coming back to be with me at home, while I work my business around my family life.

Let’s do life

Let’s do life
We got married in a tiny chapel on a Wednesday afternoon with four guests (whoever didn’t have to work that day, that’s who came). I wore a $30 Dress Barn lace tea length dress and Chris wore a plaid button down. I had no flowers. We had no wedding party. I changed into jeans and a tank top afterward, went and picked Cash up from daycare and went out to eat with Chris’s family.

It was perfect for us.

Our preacher was also perfect for us. He told us during the ceremony how awesome it was that we get to “do life together.”
