A whimsical day to go for a ride (& and a few other tidbits)

Keep Calm and Pedal On
from CantonBoxCompany
Greetings! Wow, what a week! It's supposed to be spring break here but I honestly think this has been the busiest week of the semester yet! It has been crazy. And between all of the homework, my Etsy shop, and trying to spend as much time with my family as possible, my kitten, Keats, has been sick. I took him to the vet today and the poor little guy has epilepsy. Thank goodness it is a very manageable condition, though, and all we have to do is give him one little pill a day. *Phew* I can't even express how relieved I am that he's going to be okay :)

The weather has been gorgeous and it occurred to me (after Queen's Bicycle Race popped into my head :D ) that it is the perfect day for a bike ride! If only we had bicycles. Rats. BUT, a lack of actual bikes doesn't mean we can't enjoy these wonderfully whimsical bicycle themed lovelies I found in honor of Whimsical Wednesday! I have always thought of bicycles as having a certain whimsicality all their own. Each one has its own distinct personality, and it seems to always directly reflect the personality of its owner. I particularly love vintage bicycles. They have so much spunk and spirit. I hope you get the chance to go on a bicycle ride soon with someone special, but in the meantime, enjoy these fun & whimsical finds!
