Scootin' in Heels.



{LISTEN: Brand New Key by Melanie}

Thanks to my wonderful Will and my sweet Hudson, I am now a proud owner of a pretty pink Bicycle.

 It's pretty much awesome. I think I'll go ahead and mark this Mother's Day down in the history books....as the best one EVER. 





Last night before bed, we had the most glorious time going on an impromptu spin down the street, just as dusk fell and the temperature dropped to a comfortable 70 degrees. We were quite a sight, as I blazed the way on my Schwinn, and Hudson followed behind, pulled happily along in his Radio Flyer wagon by Will. Every time I sailed past them, Hudson would say "Mama" in his sweetest voice and flash that beautiful smile that I love so much. 

Spontaneous evening rides with my lovely family down the tree-lined streets of our neighborhood? YES, PLEASE. Just another reason I love summertime. 

--I sure am lucky to have been blessed with this little boy.-- 

p.s. Happy Mother's Day to my beautiful Mom....thank you for teaching me by example how to be such an amazing mother. You're the coolest. Want to dust off your vintage Schwinn and go for a bike ride together next time I'm home? ;)

Your mother looks like she had a fashion blog of your own!!

What a lovely Mother's Day present! A pink bicycle is on my top list of wants if I lived near the beach, but now I'm starting to think I could use one even without living near the beach!

Jeannie said...

Ashley, what a sweet Mothers Day gift from your two guys. They are always so thoughtful and sweet. Love the pink! Mine was a blue Schwinn until I painted it red. Thank you for the sweet comment. What happened to all that hair I had? I'm glad you had a good mothers day. I enjoyed your visit on Sat. and my mothers day with my sweet Mama. I wish I could have seen Hudson while I was in Florence, he is just as adorable as ever.

Cara-Mia said...

I love seeing people's old family photos! That photo of your mother is great!

Cute bike. I haven't ridden one in over ten years... I wonder if it's true that you never forget how?
