Finding alone time as a couple once you have kids is hard. Finding alone time when you have three kids and a wife who is in surgical residency is almost impossible. But spoiler alert- we make it work!! We definitely don’t get date nights out as often as we would want, but we’ve learned connecting with one another doesn’t always have to be a super fancy or meticulously planned date.
In a beautiful way, having children has grounded us- mentally and physically. We have been forced to hang more locally and explore our own backyard. One of our favorite ways to do this is with our Public Bikes! Maybe it’s just me, but there is something about biking places that just feels so European and I love it!
We recently up leveled our biking game and got Public Bikes and we couldn’t love them more. Micaela selected the C9-AL its super light and feels very zippy. The straighter handle bars almost make this feel a bit like a road bike but it definitely still has a relaxed ride vibe to it.
I’m such a sucker for bright colors so I got a more cruiser style bike and went with the C7. I love my covered wheels so I don’t have to worry about water and dirt flying up not to mention my amazing grip shift! This was a totally new feature to me and I am a HUGE fan!
Aside from the sleek design and trendy color scheme, these bikes just ride SO SMOOTH. And I mean smmmmoooth!! We seriously felt like little kids cruising around on these beauts!
Quality time is definitely one of our shared love languages and when we get out for a simple ride, I always feel a strong sense of connection. And that’s what connecting is all about right?! Finding moments that work for YOU guys, no matter how frequent or infrequent they may be! What’s your favorite way to connect with your loved one? Let me know in the comments below!
