away for the weekend: moments "away"

moments "away"

Sometimes being “away" is not as much about location as it is about capturing a moment in time – those moments that make you smile, that feel like a break from the ordinary. They can happen at any time and often come as a surprise.

A couple of weeks ago I was enjoying a girls afternoon of shopping and lunch with my mom when we noticed this:

It may be hard to tell in this photo (which I couldn't resist playing with in PicMonkey), but this is not a child's bicycle.

Maybe because it’s pink – maybe because it’s a bicycle – maybe because it has such a cute pink basket in the front… I don’t really question why.

I was already enjoying the day – this was just a little added moment.
