Warning: Ugly post with Ugly pictures

As most of you know now, my bike and I did the tango with a car last week. I spent over an hour on the phone with the insurance adjuster tonight and just finished emailing her pictures. For those of you who like seeing this sort of thing, here ya go.

Quick blurry pics taken during check-in at the hospital. Notice the lovely lump near my ankle.

Arriving home and being reunited with my bike.

Yes, my handlebars are now parallel with my front tire.

I'm pretty sure this guy gave me the largest lump on my leg.

The adjuster requested a photo of my face with my leg. I explained this to my mom who took the picture. Her response, "little does she know, you can put your legs behind your head." lol Yes, thank you, Mom! That would have been a very awkward but funny picture to send.

So besides some bruising, there is still a hard lump on my leg....aka a hematoma. (A hematoma is a hard lump that develops at the site of the bruise, it's actually a small amount of blood pooling into the fatty tissues under the skin.)

I have been hopping around on the other foot and using crutches so far. My uninjured leg and the rest of my body is feeling the strain. A massage is definitely in order.

Kansas Wild Flowers

Just a few weeks ago, during my ritual ride to the Saturday morning farmers market, I rode past this gorgeous field of wild flowers.

Makes me day dream that I'm wearing a long flowing white dress and twirling around barefoot through them all.

We need more wild flowers in the world.
Beauty. Bees. Food. Health. mmmmm. yes.

Donut Pool Party

My littlest nephew turned a year old last week! ....(which also means I've been in Kansas for a year now. He was born less than 24 hours after I landed. Very hard to believe, but there's no denying it.)

My sister had a donut pool party.

Nom, nom, nom

Looks like he knows how old he is!

And he's walking...Frankenstein style.  =)

Only took 3+ years

I am so proud to announce: is finally up and running!!!!

I bought the domain and have been hosting a blank site for over three years. I designed it maybe 2 years ago, but felt overwhelmed and frankly lost past the design. Not being able to hire a programmer, it continued to just hang over my head like a big dark storm cloud. Well, sunnier days are here! Thanks to a program I've had for years, many many hours of work, and a very talented friend. Thank you, Dom!

Although I have been operating as a business for years, it feels a little more official today.


We can't all be spunky.... or have a spunky style. Some feel their style is a little classier. And well, I make exceptions now and again.

Here's a classier spin on repurposed aprons.

My first men's apron....and it's reversible!!

Yes, garçon, I'll take a bottle of Riesling please.
