Do you remember last year on this day I did something I haven't done since 1995?
Well. It seems to be a recurring theme here at Classy Chaos because this year, I did something I haven't done since 1992. That 1992 summer was epic. I landed a job as a lifeguard at the local pool. I had just turned fifteen. I remember receiving my first paycheck and thinking "I'm loaded! What should I do with all this cash?" and ran to the neighborhood bike shop. I purchased a bright yellow mountain bike with a million more gears then I really needed. I rode that bike to the pool every single day of the summer. It was so freeing not to rely on my parents for transportation. I felt incredibly independent and grown up that summer.
Fast forward twenty summers.
Today is my birthday and I got a bright green bike with an enormous basket to hold more things then I really need.
Found at Amelia's garage sale.
I pretty much rock at celebrating, no? It's out of control craziness every July 16th. I have a feeling that thirty-five is going to be very freeing. Onwards and upwards on the road ahead. I'm 35!
