chicshop giveaway*

good morning monday*
I am living in a happy, and fruitful land. The temperature outside is lower than the normal temperature of the human body. But my inner workings beat through happiness.  It is the happiness that keeps me warm.

hot cocoa on the palette- and a head filled with delight. 

March lays its bed by dormant trees, and lonely habitats.  The absence of sunshine could surely make my knees weak.  I could waste my time by wintertide- weeping for the shed of snow. Instead, the absence of sunshine makes me recollective of past summers.  I'm faraway beside grassy hills, and picnics with dreamers.
the numbing winter makes for a thankful summer.* 

My bicycle rests because of the winter's slippery way. With it's saddle like seat, and two wheels in tandem. 
This pedal driven vehicle for the girl without her license was brought to me by a peachy boy.  
It sat lonely by the neighborhood corner with an attached note "free"
Dear untickled bicycle longing to print your tracks,  When Summer is born, I promise to play well. I'll take you for long rides through the parks by the rivers, and the fruit blossoms..
"Some people plant in the spring and leave in the summer. If you're signed up for a season, see it through. You don't have to stay forever, but at least stay until you see it through."
