Blue Pear

July 26, 2009

Don took me out for dinner at the Blue Pear for my birthday! It was delicious. I had a salad with fresh ricotta fritters; asparagus and pea soup with truffle oil and morels; jicama salad with fresh tomatoes, citrus, and watermelon; baked wild salmon on safron orzo pasta; and cherry, chocolate & hazelnut tart with thai basil ice cream. YUM.

I took Pashley and rode up a hill that never ends. We have an incredibly beautiful river valley in Edmonton and there are many glorious routes to choose from when heading across the river. Pashley and I might not be very fast when heading uphill, but I survived in 2nd gear and didn't have to get out of the saddle.

This is another dress I got from Anthropologie. I like how the fabric is lace-like. The proportions are good too.

On the ride home we took a series of streets I have never been on despite having being born and raised in Edmonton. Check out this time warp of a liquor store! I like the stones.

A bow!

High heeled floral canvas cork platform sandals.

Happy Birthday, and that is a beautiful outfit! I love going out to dinner with the husband on our Pashleys. Our favourite restaurants have outdoor or terrace seating and allow us to park the bikes next to our table : )

Sounds like a great day, happy birthday! Love the alice band in your hair, and the dress!

Happy Birthday!

Way to go up that hill on Pashley. I've found that climbing has a lot to do with the person and people like us who ride everyday have an advantage, no matter the bike we're riding. Another lovely outfit! So sweet and interesting.

Stunning, I love your classy style. The bow is adorable

I want to go on a bike date. We haven't gone on one since we moved to San Diego.

Happy birthday :)

Belated Happy Birthday. I enjoy reading your blog. I linked to it from my own. Always good to hear from another bicycle enthusiast.

by the way- you asked me about infants and bikes. I keep meaning to email you but now I can't find your comment with email. I sadly don't have any good info to share about infants and bikes. I started biking when my son was 2 ( last year) so I never had to figure it all out.

Sorry I can't be more helpful!
