I had a dear friend ask me recently if I had indeed stopped writing on my blog because she thought there was something wrong with her computer, and she had gone so far as to erase her web history to try to resolve why my page wasn't loading correctly! So, I figured it was high time I apologized for this little hiatus of mine, excuse me... extremely long hiatus... as it seems I've been away for over 2 months! Eek!
I won't bore you with excuses, but I will say that I've had very good reason. I have been so extremely exhausted, that by the time I get home from work, I put my pajamas on, and all but crawl into bed when I get home. At least that's what I WANT to do. And here's why...
A little background may help as to why we went with the bicycle theme for our announcement... and that's because we actually have 4 bikes between the two of us. Brian has his road bike and mountain bike, while I take pride in my vintage Schwinn Breeze.
And the pièce de résistance is that when Brian and I started dating seriously, we rode our bikes around town, and were having lunch at a little pizza place when we saw a tandem bicycle ride by. Brian commented on how fun that would be, and that's when I told him that my dad had won one back in the 80's, that he still had. Well, all it took was one mention to my dad that we were interested, and the Columbia tandem was ours! We don't ride as much as we used to, but it is convenient when we don't want to hassle with two bikes, and we are going to the same place anyway!
We even had our engagement photos taken on it...
So there in lies the story of the bicycle pregnancy announcement. We are so very excited!
And a very happy birthday to my sister who celebrated her birthday yesterday (and will celebrate again with us tomorrow night)!
