1. Last November, my bike was stolen from our garage. We stupidly left the garage open and unattended for a whopping five minutes and someone took the liberty to help themselves to a new set of wheels. To say I was disappointment was an understatement—I love biking around St. Louis and we use it for a form of transportation whenever we can in the summer. Last month I finally replaced my bike and after checking out three different bike stores (at the insistence of my very meticulous decision maker of a husband!), I ended up with a brand new Trek from Maplewood Cyclery. I know most of my readers are from outside of STL, but for those of you in the area, I can't recommend this place more! The people were so friendly and helpful and I couldn't be happier with my new bike!
2. My cousin Ben is well on his way to his own music career, and living in Nashville, he has a ton of musician friends. The perks of having musician friends? You get to star in music videos! Ben and his girlfriend Emily have cameos in the music video for If It Don't Feel Like This (see above for a snapshot). Not only was it fun seeing the two of them ham it up for the camera, but I am kind of obsessed with the song too—doesn't it belong on the radio?! Perfect summer song!
