i know i look pretty convincing (not) but i am not the actual driver of that motor bike, i do however ride on the back of it. i never pictured myself as a girl who would ride (on) motorcycles, i guess i never pictured it meshing with my personality. when camden and i first started dating, he was just starting to get his motorcycle license so i knew early on they were to be a big part of my future. after my first ride on that thing i knew i was hooked. i loved every second and knew it wouldn't be my last.
all growing up i was an overly fearful person. i have been known to worry, stress, and cry over things that turned out to be very insignificant. i used to have awful night terrors that would keep me from sleeping and i was extremely sure a "baddy" was plotting to kidnap me from my bed just about every night. the older i've gotten, i have slightly grown out of this but although my worries have changed from baddies to more grown up worries, i still find myself stressing a bit too often. this is why i never saw myself even on the back of one of those motor bikes. not me, too dangerous. whatever the reason, the fact is that riding does not scare me one bit and i actually enjoy the thrill of being on one. feeling the wind on my face and smelling the warm summer breeze is relaxing and calming to me.
the other day we decided to head out for a ride. it was really nice but towards the end it got a little cold and windy. once it starts to rain, i know i have no hope of staying warm. we hurried home for a nice warm shower and a hot cup of tea before heading to bed. it was a lovely night and i love being able to have quiet moments with camden on his motor bike.
