Why I Ride

 

Image

Freedom, self-determination, choice, inspiration, therapy, camaraderie, dad, LOVE, empowerment.
 
 

Freedom from my thoughts and worries. Nothing is more freeing than the feeling of the wind against my face, an open road and the sound of a Harley.

Self-determination focus, strength of mind, control

Choice Freedom of choice.  The choice to take the risk of riding two wheels. A risk that empowers me every time I roll that throttle.

InspirationTo be inspired.  Riding clears the cobwebs and allows for new ideas and sense of purpose.  To inspire others.  Giving women a reason to go out there and do it for themselves.

TherapyNo therapist can give you the kind of peace, serenity or clarity that comes with riding through the countryside, down tree lined roads, over rolling hills and riding into a sunset.

CamaraderieNothing is better than a biker community. You find some of your best and longest lasting friendships among bikers.  They are Family.

Friday Faves

Happy Friday to you!  We have a weekend of traveling for a 60th wedding anniversary celebration and a family dinner.  I hoe you all have a fun weekend planned as well!

My Friday Faves

1) TurboKick.   I have mentioned before that I teach this class four times a week at the local YMCA.  My last class for the week is on Friday’s from 4:30-5:15pm.  It is always interesting to guess the attendance for the day.  Happy Hour is TOUGH competition, y’all.

2. Starbucks.  I treat myself on Friday’s to a Caramel Frapp.  MY FAVE!!!  Sugar free syrup, non-fat milk, no whip, please.

3. Too Faced Primed and Poreless.

I use this primer everyday underneath my foundation.  Lifesaver for those who tend to get oily as the day passes by.  By the end of the workday my foundation is still set in place with minimum shine since I started using this product.

4. Too Faced Shadow Insurance

Along the same lines as the Primer, the Shadow Insurance is just for your eyes.  Do you get that ugly eyeshadow crease?  You won’t after you start using this product!  My eyeshadow looks great at the end of a 9 hour day, no joke.  And my eyeshadow used to always be creased and slimy looking by lunch time.  This product is magic to me!

5. Scandal

I am COMPLETELY obsessed with this show.  The plot lines, the characters, the suspense, the emotion.  Totally invested in this series and right now I don’t want it to EVER end.
