Ever since I got my new bike in June, I've been peaking into the world of biking and bike loving. Bikespotting will by my new Wednesday feature every week. Some weeks may be simply photographs of bikes around my town or the internet. Some may be links to great articles. I think we'll take it as it goes and see where we end up, shall we?

Speaking of loving bikes, I think these two bikes love each other. I'm usually not into his and hers type deals, but this is the right kind of adorable.

On Saturday, we went to Murray's Lake with my sister, Ashley, and her boyfriend, Isaac. We had such a good time! Last year, Eric and I went there several times, but we hadn't gone yet this year. I really have no explanation. I love this place. And Eric has so many great memories from his childhood. There's a tree with his name on it! Not that I condone tree-carving...

The boys briefly bonded over fishing. We didn't last long at this spot. There were no fish, and it was not quite a prime swimming spot.

.linen love.

As part of my new blog schedule, Thursdays will be devoted entirely to linen (and occasionally, when I see fit, there will be other textiles as well). I really do love linen that much.

I've had JoDemontis in my Etsy favorites and bookmarks for quite some time now. Her designs are so fluid and organic, I can just imagine her moving around the mannequin, draping fabric here and there. This is my favorite of the styles she offers in her Etsy shop, the Draped Sack Dress and skirt. The outline is so intriguing and the linen draping must feel wonderful to wear.

It's my cousin's wedding this weekend and I totally wish I had this dress to wear!

I have to share this video with you. Especially you, Susan, and you, Mollie, if you're still reading my blog. I just love this.

Also, I love the old photo of him.

Chelsea linked this to me.

.outside the box.

Get it?!
Yes, I look strange. Trying to make it look like you're trying really hard to lift a box really just makes you look awkward... Just ignore that part and focus on my clever joke.

Look at her! Just standing there in all of her righteous, backlit glory. This is her new home. She is my new home. With care, she will outlive me. Kind of like owning a tortoise. Except she eats yarn and spits out beauty.

.a box.

Yup, it's home.

I couldn't have done it without my wonderful friend Annie and her awesome husband, Chuck. Thanks guys!!

Now I have to wait until Eric gets home to unload it.
