After a long weekend of HOLIDAY HOME SHOW set-up, hosting, chatting, schmoozing & selling… it felt SO good to be back on the bike this morning for another AMAZING morning sunrise. Always the best way to start my day!!!

A chilly morning for a bike ride, but it was so nice to finally NOT have snow or rain!!!
Beautiful colors for a brief moment and then back to cloudy grayness!

Warmer, but windier! It was tough pedaling into the wind all the way south to the City. But let me just say… the ride home was pretty fast & sweet. Tailwinds are so much more fun!

A chilly start to a beautiful morning… who knew that I would need so many layers & gloves so early in Fall?! I could see my breath!!! Let me just say, it was about 40-degrees when I started… and went up only two degrees while I was pedaling! Too cold. Too soon. I’m not ready for this!

Sure, today may have been rainy, gray & gloomy all day…
but yesterday was pretty darn beautiful. Strong winds & crashing waves…
still better than rain!!!

Nothing but blue skies this morning. Not a cloud in the sky…
just a couple beautiful silhouettes along the way!

Chris and I had a wonderful bike ride yesterday along the North Branch Trail…
with a quick stop-off at the Wagner Farm in Glenview. All decked out for Fall
with plenty of pumpkins to go around!

Crisp, clear and VERY CHILLY… with a crosswind that kinda made it feel like
a headwind in bot directions. Lucky me!

Good thing I threw on a couple extra layers before heading out this morning!

What better way to kick-off October than with another sunrise bike ride. Surprisingly warm this morning with a strong side-wind from the west. Clouds blowing through… which kinda felt like a headwind both coming & going?!!!!
