We made it to July. Phew. Somehow that feels like an accomplishment in and of itself.
I sit here, quite honestly, with a ball of anxiety in my stomach. The COVID-19 numbers in our state and country are rising rapidly, and school options in the fall are looking bleak. On my Instagram feed I read a post that says "Dear Me, I know you're scared, but you can handle this. Love, Me."
Yes, we can handle this! We will one day look back on this time and find meaning. We will appreciate certain things, different for each one of us, like never before. Hold on and hang in there. Keep your loved ones close.

JARED's MADSEN TIP-of-the-MONTH:
Did you know you can put your e-MADSEN in "walk mode"? YES! It's true. You have a load of kids, and need to walk your bike across a street? Just hold down the minus ("-") button and your bucket bike will walk with you at just over 3 miles/hour. It's a lifesaver, too, when you are trudging your bike across the sand at the beach!
Mask up, stay healthy, spread joy, and keep riding (those endorphins really do help!). Thank you so much for supporting our small business.
Sending good vibes,
P.S. A peek at what Jared does in his limited spare time... like designing his own custom face mask to meet his precise comfort needs. #alwaysabetterway
