Michelle’s Bicycle Whimsy

In celebration of National Bike Month, I created a Pinterest Board - Michelle’s Bicycle Whimsy  that reflects how the bicycle inspires me.  I think of morning, afternoon or evening rides, adventures in the park, picnics, shopping at the market, and just a wonderful opportunity to explore the world around us.  A bicycle ride allows me to commune with nature and get away from all of the day-to-day, minute-to-minute responsibilities.  The perfect escape…

Global Connections – A Precious Gift


One of the most extraordinary gifts that I have received on this blogging journey is the ease in which we can connect with one another from all around the world.  I did not fully grasp that concept until I started viewing the WordPress statistics information.  I think this is so AMAZING!  I have not had a chance to travel, but my desire to do so is SO STRONG!  I thank you all for connecting with me and sharing what it is like to live in your area of the world.   Your posts and your photos help to satiate my desires until I have the means to freely travel about the world on my own.  Until then – I look forward to getting to know you.



Share Your World: Week 16


1. If you had a choice, which would be your preference: salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, hot tub, or desert? 

Definitely, salt water beaches.  The blurry the water, the better.


2. What book do you think everyone should read and why?


This book taught me how to nurture my children with greater purpose.

3. What’s your favorite way to wake up and what’s the first thing you do?

My favorite way to wake up is without an alarm.  The first thing I do, is say a prayer of thanks that I don’ t have to be anywhere.

4. What do you do to relax?

I don’ t get to relax very often, but when I do, I enjoy hanging out at the booksrore, napping, and writing.
