Flashback Music Video – The Highwayman

 


 

I love this song. It reminds me of all the people who are no longer in my life.  It makes me hopeful all the people that I’ve lost are still here in some form. They are most assuredly in my mind and my heart, but hopefully they have something to do with the beautiful sunrise and sunset too. And if I’ve lost some friends along the way in my journey, I’m grateful we share the same sunrise and sunset – and I do think of you often and wish you well.

1000 BLEEPING Cycling Miles

It’s no surprise that I LOVE  my bike. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’m in a relationship with my bike.  I commute to work everyday on it, choose to ride long distances because it’s just so fun, and prefer to take a ride on my bike rather than use the car. From Memorial Day to Labor Day I managed to hit 1000 miles, despite one nasty crash (sprained the membrane between my ulna and radius), a car wreck, and three flats.  Here are some funny/nice/awesome moments of my first summer cycling in Chicago.

BICYCLE RIIIIIIIGHTS.

Me and Yoshi right after reaching 1000 miles on 8/29/2014.

That time I wore this white Nike top and there was a surprise downpour on the way home….. AWKWARD.

Giant Bike Packs. Gotta be prepared I guess.

One Year exactly. 8.26.2013 vs 8.26.2014. HUZZAH.

On the ride air pumps. This was the first of 3 flats I encountered – all within the same week too!

Gorgeous view from my long University of Chicago Campus rides – total distance that day 35 miles.

Work is nice enough to have an indoor bike rack. Yoshi never has to brave the elements without me.

The aftermath of Yoshi vs. Car. Twisted handlebars… thank goodness no other damage was done.

Sorry for my butt… about a week after my first crash. It took two months for that bruise to totally disappear.

On the road with Yoshi and Leopold. If only that squirrelly little pug would sit in a basket… sigh.

Here’s to many more 1ks on Yoshi!

Huzzah!

Midnight Birthday Tea Party

During my trip in Denver my babes of friends threw me a little birthday tea party. I just still can’t get over how much fun it was and how amazing these girls are to me. We played an awesome game called Munchkin, ate, laughed hysterically, ate more, and just had a damn good time. Plus tea! It was just so thoughtful and wonderful and I’m smiling wide just thinking about it again.

Here are pictures of the decorations, the games, and the amazing desserts. That coconut macaroon! 😍
