Can't wait to check out your favorite blogs! Good for you for commuting to work by bicycle. I especially admire this because I'm the only person in the world who has forgotten how to ride a bike. :O

Thanks for nominating my blog as a Kreativ one! I reckon the cycling balance would return if you started again, although NYC might be a bit dicey for riding.
