say hello...

by - 08:21 my new mixte! The husband did it again. It didn't matter that it was his birthday yesterday. No no, he decided to surprise me with this bicycle: a mid-to-late 1970's Schwinn Le Tour. It's in pristine condition and rides like a dream. I've been looking for either a Dutch bike or a mixte--basically, something I can ride while wearing dresses and skirts. We're planning on switching out the handlebars to albatross bars and I think I want to add a wire basket to the front so that I can tote my belongings around town. This was such a wonderful and perfect surprise to come home to. I am over the moon!
