the wind in my hair...

Since Keith got his bike, we (and by 'we' I mean 'he') have been looking for fun things to do that involve motorcycle riding. when we saw a poster for the veteran's rally/motorcycle ride, he was to-the-moon excited. i was too. truth be told, i love riding on the back of the bike & breathing that fresh mountain air. there's just something about it that makes you forget all your worries...

 suited up and ready for our ride!

it was SO HOT that day...and naturally I forgot sunscreen!

Clear blue skies & mountains in the background. the perfect day for a ride :) 

The huuge flag made my day. :) I'm a sucker for patriotism.

What a wonderful, quaint little mountain town. Sometimes the simple things are the best...

motorcycle rides & sunny evenings

this evening keith decided to go on a motorcycle ride. i didn't go because
a. it's still too hot out!
b. i wanted to get some things done around the house.

but what did i end up doing instead? I started a blog! I've wanted to for so long anyway.
we're moving so very far away, which is exciting and sad at the same time...
exciting because. i mean. it's an ISLAND in the middle of the pacific! how fun is that?!
but sad to be leaving everyone we love so far, far away.

so this will (hopefully) be a good way to help keep up with all the many things that will be happening here very verrry soon!
