♪♫ I Like to Ride My Bicycle ♪♫

Do you remember that song by Queen?  I've probably just TOTALLY dated myself, lol.  Alright, I think it was a little ahead of my time, but older siblings and all... lol.

Anyway -- how was everyone's St. Patrick's Day??  Mine was pretty quiet.  I *did* have a green apple martini after my girls went to bed to celebrate though :).  I'm IRISH for goodness sake, I couldn't let the WHOLE day pass by without celebrating just a teeny bit, right? ;)

Sorry -- moving on.  TODAY is Thursday.  Thursday is Pink Cat Studio release day!! 

Melissa has some fun images today, to get you all revved up to GET OUTSIDE and enjoy some of that FRESH air!!  Take a look:
I'm in NY, and it has been BEAUTIFUL here this week!!!  LOVING the weather.  Loving it, PERFECT for bike riding.  I'm fairly lucky too, as where we live, we have a beautiful bike trail nearby, I'm hoping to get us all out there maybe Saturday morning...we'll see tho - lol.

A friend of mine is an avid cyclist.  She started out small, but now she is an incredible cyclist, and I'm so proud of her.  She had a TERRIBLE wreck a few years back -- broken eye socket, cheek bones, elbows, oh my goodness...she was a MESS.  I remember going to see her the day after the accident, and she said..."don't I look like the planet of the apes??"  Her face was all swollen, and bruised.  It truly is amazing what the human body can endure....She made a FULL recovery, and couldn't WAIT to get back on the bike.  This card will be for her.  I know that cycling makes her happy :).

The sentiment says: "A Bicycle ride is a flight from sadness - James E. Starrs"  This is Gen - she is most happy when she is on her bike -- or with me and my girls -- ha ha ha ha ha ha....seriously though...I thought this was so fitting.

Head on over to Pink Cat Studio, and get your cycling digis - and don't forget to stop by the rest of the team's blogs as well -- you'll find their links in my sidebar over there -------> :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!  I'll be back tomorrow with a fun little story and a card too!!  Just in time for FRIDAY!!!
