He got me a super cool surprise the other day, and I'm pretty stoked about it.
I grumble sometimes because he spends so much time working on his 1967 Land Cruiser. I start feeling like he would rather be greasy, nasty, and working on it than spend some quality time chatting with me. He knew I felt that way, and he decided to get me my own "cruiser." (Not to worry. He spends time with me too. I'm just a girl, and I whine sometimes... It's only natural.)
My cruiser has two wheels instead of four, and I haven't had one since I was probably 12, so I was sooo excited when he brought it home.
Can you guess what it is yet?
It's a beach cruiser bike!
Isn't she beautiful?
I thought he did a great job picking it out. He knows that my favorite color in the whole world has always been green and that I love Love LOVE anything old (or that looks old), so this vintage looking mint green beach cruiser was perfect! I'm pretty much in love with it.
It even looks cute beside his two wheel cruiser (as opposed to THE "Cruiser" with four wheels).
He brought me out to see it, and I, of course, wanted to ride it right then, so he made some adjustments for me.
Then I immediately hopped on to take a spin...
It's super awesome and I'm soooo excited to have it!
His surprise even helped solve a problem that I had been worrying about lately. I had been worried because Kent's going to be going on another trip before long, and when he's gone, I have a hard time giving Duke as much exercise as he needs all by myself. Don't get me wrong, I do it, but it's not easy. I have to run more than my knees are accustomed to or walk for several hours a day, and sometimes it's just not practical. This new bike solves that!
When Kent is home, he sometimes takes Duke on bike rides. Duke gets his run for the day, and Kent doesn't have to run every single day if he doesn't feel like it. Since Duke is so good at running right beside him, or in this case the bike, it's easy. Now I can do the same thing, and not worry that he's got too much pent up energy. It will work out great.
I am definitely feeling super blessed to have such an awesome husband who does such thoughtful things for me. He may not be a mushy-gushy type of romantic, but he takes care of things, gives me the things I need and want, and spends time with me, and that's the most important thing to me.
Keep the roses, jewelry, and poetry... I want a bike, my great guy, and some quality time on a bike ride together! :)
