Things I see when I ride my bike to town...

Cute pastry shop on the main street
My first macaroon... everything I imagined and more.
He decided to paint my portrait so I was admiring the process.
True likeness indeed!
... so now we are best of friends. He's truly excited about it too, I swear.
Just don't mind his face, he's not very facially expressive.


Darlings,

Today I decided to put my books aside 
and take advantage of gorgeous day.

So I jumped on my bike and rode to town.

Hinsdale it's such a cute and glam little 
suburb. Definitely looking forward to 
more sunny days like this.

The photos are amazing, it looks so pretty! He definitely needs to work on his expressions though, otherwise the wind will change and they'll stay that way ha, ha, ha. I'm sorry, I'll leave. X

These photos are sheer brilliance. What a lovely town this must be by the looks of it! Love those gorgeous blossoming trees.

I too, recently had my first batch of macaroons. I say batch because I had like 15 of them. They come in so many delish flavors, it's just not possible to pick. Truth: bakeries are my weakness :))

Love your photography girl!
