on saturday morning, i bought a bike! jordan bought a bike (the black one in the background) a few weeks ago, and for some reason, i decided to join him in the bike-riding hobby. turns out, it's really fun. if only i could bike to work...


i bought it at loose nuts bike shop, in my neighborhood. they are really nice there, very knowledgeable, and no pressure. perfect!

on sunday, we rode our bikes to the grant park farmer's market, which was amazing. seriously, if any of you guys live around, i hope you check it out. lots of local organic farmers and other foods vendors (including cheese mongers, a traveling "farmmobile", and the king of pops!). it made me really, really happy.

lastly, here are some photos of the flowers on our stoop...

i planted these 2 succulent pots 2 weeks ago, and we also have flowers in the flower beds that are growing like crazy.

  3. Maybe I'll see you around the neighborhood! My husband and I take evening bike rides around Grant Park at least a few times a week (along with our little beagle). There's just something about that feeling when I look up into the massive oak trees as I ride down a hill during a steamy summer Atlanta night. I.LOVE.IT.

  4. thanks, you guys!

    alysson - yes! you should get some. i have had them the past few summers. they require little water, and like sunshine, so they're perfect for the summer time. i even kept one of the big ones all through the winter - it lived inside, but now it's back outside again for summer.

    avigail - if you see me, and recognize me, say hey! that's awesome. it's so great riding bikes...i hope to do it all summer long.
