I hope everyone is having a good new year so far. As 2016 came to a close, I flew out to California for a Husqvarna event. They had a women’s ride day for the company, and asked me to come give tips and then ride with everyone. We took off through some trails and then got back onto a track. I had fun time with all the women.
I have to mention the catered lunch from Wahoo’s; I had fish tacos for the first time and LOVED them!
All in all, it was a great event, and it’s nice to know there are motorcycle companies that care about their women riders as much as they care about the men! Before I left, the Husqvarna team approached me about serving as an Ambassador for their bikes! I’m super excited; I love their company.
The holidays kicked off officially with a family trip to Disney’s Fort Wilderness in Florida to celebrate my brother’s 13th birthday. We all had a great time and my mom took her “standard” holiday picture of my brother and me by the huge Christmas tree that’s set up there every year.
Then we came home and my family and friends served dinner for people who are homeless and for low-income families at our church. It felt good to make a nice holiday meal for people who might not have one. My brother’s friends got involved with decorating the placemats and helping to serve the meal. Mom stuck me in the kitchen, which probably wasn’t a good thing; I’m not exactly top chef.
As I write this, I’m out west snowboarding and hanging with friends, but slowly making my way back to Cali. I need to get some things from my house before I head back to Florida, where I’m having a tiny house built. It will be placed out on my parents land when it’s finished.
I’ve already cleared an area for it, and then I’ll have a track right outside my door to ride and train! I found a great tiny-home builder company right in Florida. My new home will have a hot pink front door, a pink sink, and pink tiles in the shower!
I’m so excited and can’t wait to see how it all comes together. It’s been pretty exciting and fun to be a part of the process of building a house from the ground up. By the time I finish up all my travels I should be able to come back to Florida and move right in! Then I can focus on my classes and on training riders.
