adventures

when life gives you lemons

This weekend was totally wonderful.

Went on the best date filled with a bunch of my favorite things. lemonade & smoothies ♥ yummy new food ♥ crafts & handmade things ♥ offbeat coffee shops ♥ bike rides ♥ picnics by the beach

Catch A Healthy Habit

We walked around Fairfield (CT) which is an adorable little town. I tried raw food (from a restaurant) for the first time…it was yummy! Felt great to eat such a healthful meal-of avocado nachos, a ‘burrito’, lettuce shell taco, and veggie spring rolls. Although we totally ruined the healthy food vibe by making a massive vegan pizza for dinner!

We stepped into here–Which was this magical place of DIY, sewing machines, craft classes, fabric/supplies and handmade everything. [basically what I want out of life] Seriously though, maybe it’s just where I live but i’ve never seen such a passionate crafty place, it was great. I was like a little nervous kid in a candy store. The boy and I are going to go back next time i’m in town and take a knitting class or something! Make and Mingle blog & Etsy shop.

And lastly, I got to take home the most rad gift ever…

bike love.

My beautiful new vintage bike! I absolutely adore it. I can’t wait to squeeze in a bike ride after work. It’s from before the ’70s, has all of the original parts, and a working light. Just need to get a lock so I can ride it to the store & such…and a bell! I’ve been itching for a new bike, but a new-old bike. I’m smitten, It’s perfect. ♥

Share the love!

  • The raw smoothie place looks like somewhere I’d definitely love to be!

    Your photo of the scrabble board is perfect. Did you snap it?

    Ohhh my gosh, that bike is lovely! My mom just brought my bike over yesterday and I can’t wait to stop being lazy and use it, even if it’s not as cute as yours. Hahah.
    Also, after seeing that Scrabble picture I asked my boyfriend if he wants to play, so we’ll be doing that tonight. :)

    @Joyful Sparrow: Yep, I took the photo while playing the game in a coffee shop. The raw place was awesome, i’m definitely going back.

    @Sonya: Having a cute bike definitely makes me want to ride more, heh. I actually forgot to mention that when my boyfriend and I played, we got the same exact score at the end..Crazy!
