You may remember this post from last fall, Le Grand Depart, in which I showcased my lovely Lauren, leaving the house & getting on her bicycle. Simple, mundane but beautiful. To me, anyway.
To recap, she dressed (up) for the occasion/destination (a night out with friends/cafes, clubs), stepped out, unlocked her bike, walked her bike to the bridge and set off. It was a beautiful evening, not too cold, no wind, all perfect to enjoy the ride, even more than usual that month. Fast forward to a week ago. One nasty Saturday. Cold, heavy winds, non-stop rain, a real downpour. Now, to show you more than one side of the coin, here's an updated version of that series: 'Le Grand Depart...quand il pleut' (The Grand Departure...when it rains).
Where she was going, you ask? Again a social occasion: a bachelorette party, which required her to go all over town and take all kinds stuff with her. She dressed to a T once again...the only thing different was she put on my rain coat. "Way too big, but it is way more practical", she said. Hence her smiling, despite the rain. :)
