This year, Ryan and I celebrated our wedding anniversary with a trip to the dentist for me and a trip to the urologist with a kidney stone for him! We laughed it off (once the pain passed) and chalked it up to #lifehappens
Then, this showed up at my doorstep this afternoon, and I cried. I cried tears of joy and surprise. See, this bike means so much more than just a killer workout to me. It means my husband listened and knew how much I wanted this bike but I just wouldn't spend the money on it, but he would. It means that even though our life is about to change when we welcome our baby girl into this world very soon, I still have a way to focus on myself, even if it's just for one ride, one class, one hour. It means hope, hope that I can get this baby weight off quickly and safely! Most importantly, it means that even when life happens, my husband always makes me a priority.
Yes, today I cried in front of two delivery people over an exercise bike, and I have zero shame.
Ryan Dempsey you never cease to amaze me with your selfless, thoughtful heart. I love you so much, and you have given me much more than just a piece of exercise equipment today.
