217 : 365 Biked nine hot, windy miles. It's funny as a cyclist you become a lot more aware of your surroundings. That bridge in a car? Yeah, it's totally flat. On a bike? You realize it's definitely a hill, and a dang big one at that. A nice breeze that would normally feel great? It'll turn that bridge into a mountain. I always feel accomplished after a tough ride though.
218 : 365 One of my favorite things about my apartment is definitely all the windows, my plants love it too!
218 : 365 My mom came out to visit for the day. We shopped, relaxed at the beach, went to Presti's, and of course, hit up the photobooth at Big Fun since we were in the area. Later that night, Jeff and I biked around downtown. I had been wanting to get a picture of my bike with the lasers that are up for the Gay Games since the day they went up. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I wish those lasers were there all the time, they looked pretty awesome in person.
219 : 365 A few of the bugs in my collection that need to find a home in a shadow box.
220 : 365 Sometimes even grown ups like night lights. (Arrow found here!)
221 : 365 Awesome mail day including an Influenster box!
222 : 365 I'm obsessed with finding murals to take pictures of bike in front of. Also, I want to make note of this being a really tough ride for me. We did 11 miles, which is average for our rides lately. I don't know what it was but I was struggling. I had a bit of a fever, it was hot outside, I was beyond thirsty, and when we took a short break I might have shed a few tears, which I tried to deny at the time. But just like I said above, the toughest bike rides always make me feel the most accomplished.
