I’ll be spending part of this weekend leafing through my new Smitten Kitchen cookbook (courtesy of Dottie, who gives the best hostess gifts ever) and roasting squash to prepare for making a homemade pumpkin pie next week. But I do have some evening plans, and since we’re supposed to have pretty mild weather, I love the idea of setting out for them wearing a big ol’ bulky, cozy sweater over something just a little bit glittery. Ankle boots and solid tights tie the whole thing together, and would work great on a white Felt Verza Regency bicycle.
Anyone else doing Thanksgiving prep work or recipe research this weekend? I’m so excited that I actually get to COOK this year—I’m going to visit my parents and my family is having our first Thanksgiving ever as just the four of us.
p.s. Forgot to mention that Nashville, we’re having a bike brunch on Sunday! Meet at West End Café at 11, optional ride downtown for the mayor’s 5K afterward.
This year, I am thankful for family and friends near and far; the community we’ve found through blogging, good health and the good food that will be on the table today . . . etc.
But most of all, I’m thankful that after a year and a half on two wheels, I’ve yet to inspire a highway art installment like this one.

How about you, friends? And what do you think of this installment? Humorous, or hostile, given that it’s located next to a highway?
And to our American readers — how are you celebrating Thankgiving? I’m spending it away from my family for just the second time in 29 years (yikes). Planned to bring a cake to a friend’s, but a pan extraction incident means I’m making cake balls instead. Something tells me my hosts won’t complain.
