mon nouveau vélo

On Friday JB rushed into the kitchen where I was making this (so.good) and handed me a key. 
The keys to my new … Bike.  
I’m officially european.
i don’t get keys to cars these days, i get keys to bikes.  
she’s a peach.
she’s a french brand … so i have to come up with an appropriate name.

some other scenes from Basel this weekend… of course, more bikes, vespas, and flowers.
i can’t help myself.
{a mint vespa.  #obsession}

Hope you all had a loverlie weekend!

    I can't believe I haven't asked you this yet: what camera and lens do you typically use?

    Haha! YaY- love everything about your bike! I like the name Sohpie or Nathalie!!

    AND – your post where you shared "I will hold myself to a standard of GRACE, not perfection" was encouraging more than you know!!

    She's beautiful!! 😀 youncould name her a dance term (since that's the only French I know. Haha!) Demi means little, I have a friend named that and I've always thought it was pretty.

    Riding a bike is so much better than driving a car! Especially if it's as cute as yours and has a basket! Such pretty pictures!

    I am dying over the mint vespa. If it made sense to own one in Houston, TX, I surely would.
