Once again I just wanted to say thank you so much for your support during the first day of our launch of the Button Factory, you guys rock! Getting to cross "Launch the Button Factory online" off my 2012 Goal List has been the highlight of my year so far. It is not, however, my only goal. Recently I've been working hard on another one of my favorite 2012 goals, renovating an old bike. I think you'll like the progress I've been making.
I've been slowly buying all of the fun accessories I want for the bike like a front basket, new seat and handle bars, and a back rack as well. I decided to install the new seat and handle bars for a temporary sprucing up, while I wait to have a weekend to strip and repaint the bike mint green.
The basket and back rack are both aluminum so they'll compliment the silver details on the seat, making this ramshackle bike look brand new when all is said and done. Below you see a close up of the new bike seat and handle bars.
I've been practicing my biking on the gravel road behind the house. I literally haven't been on a bike since I was 13, so a refresher course is a must. I'm starting to feel more confident and I can't wait to bike downtown with Ryan later this summer. big kiss, bekuh.
