The ladies of LeVintage Dress braved the snow today!
If you were over on my Instagram last night, you would have seen I was at dinner with Stella Artois celebrating the launch of their new holiday chalice. Look you could drink a beer out of a normal glass, or even a traditional chalice, but then you could also drink it out of a hand blown glass with Swarovski crystals. Not really much of a choice is it? Head over to The Fancy to get yours, and see the other photos I took of this glassware as art.
Flagg enjoying the snow.
My girl loves the snow, so happy she got to enjoy it this Thanksgiving.

‘A Zen teacher saw five of his students returning from the market, riding their bicycles. When they arrived at the monastery and had dismounted, the teacher asked the students, “Why are you riding your bicycles?”
The first student replied, “The bicycle is carrying this sack of potatoes. I am glad that I do not have to carry them on my back!” The teacher praised the first student. “You are a smart boy! When you grow old, you will not walk hunched over like I do.”
The second student replied, “I love to watch the trees and fields pass by as I roll down the path!” The teacher commended the second student, “Your eyes are open, and you see the world.”
The third student replied, “When I ride my bicycle, I am content to chant nam myoho renge kyo.” The teacher gave his praise to the third student, “Your mind will roll with the ease of a newly trued wheel.”
The fourth student replied, “Riding my bicycle, I live in harmony with all sentient beings.” The teacher was pleased and said to the fourth student, “You are riding on the golden path of non-harming.”
The fifth student replied, “I ride my bicycle to ride my bicycle.” The teacher sat at the feet of the fifth student and said, “I am your student.”’
Snuck in a quick park ride today after being away from the bike for two and a half months (too long).
Takeaways included, I love bikes, these guys love color, I’m slower than before, and also, being on earth is as good a reason as any to be happy.
The last taken from a dude who heard us call for a tool over the speaker he had attached to his bike, here playing disco (FM).
This dude poignantly explained later that the speaker is preferred to headphones, because he can hear what’s happening, i.e. a call for help. Anyways, that’s important and so is jamming.
One Take // Fare Thee Well (Dink’s Song)
Love the song, decided to try my hand (and voice) at it. Have not done a One Take in a while, for those who don’t know it’s pretty simple, I record a song once and don’t re-record it. Gives me a place to make mistakes and publish imperfect things, which is kind of liberating. See old ones here.
