lynn in love with bikes II

Meanwhile, as I search for my perfect cruiser bike,

I found all these cute bike prints and accessories!!


First off this adorable letterpress print found via ThatWifeBlog made by MaJoie Press!
I ended up buying this one, because it was just perfect for us! In our aqua wedding color with a tandem bike? The actual print is beautiful and I can't wait to display it with our wedding pictures.

Next up is this adorable Kate Spade Bike Picnic basket!! Seriously how adorable?? Wouldn't exactly go with my aqua bike. But I don't think I'd care if somebody gifted me with this! :)

Found via You are My Fave,
I found this cute T-shirts and Bike Totes at BMinus.etsy.com

What about these Pantone bikes? Love, but only in Canada in the W. Hemisphere.

Have y'all found any cute bike accessories??

lynn in love with bikes!

Oh, I've had bikes on the brain for a while now.

I've been obsessed with finding the perfect aqua cruiser forever... for some reason I can't seem to make a decision. Every time, I find a bike I like, I find a reason to be doubtful ("what are those funky hawaiian flower decals on the side?" ,"hmm.. i really wanted a brown leather seat")

Haha... I've taken finding "THE bike" as seriously as finding my wedding dress!

But really, ever since my husband surprised us with a tandem bike getaway on our wedding night, I've been in love with bikes since!

Here are some photographic evidence:

Our wedding night! I'm kinda in love with this picture from Heather Essian.
Yes I don't look like I know what I'm doing. Yes, I am wearing my reception dress and Valentino Heels. Yes I totally bit it 20 seconds after this picture is taken and had a huge bruise on my leg the entirety of our honeymoon!


During our trip to San Franscisco and we biked across to the GG bridge to Sausalito.

and then we rented some sweet red cruisers to bike all around South Congress in Austin

We actually have an awesome bike store in Dallas: http://fleetwoodskitkat.com/ that makes custom Villy custom bikes! Pretty awesome, you can get everything customized down to the rims of your wheels! I would have totally jumped on this option, however, they didn't have the color aqua I wanted. The closest they got is a mint color, which is pretty, but now what I want.

Actually this is the exact bike (except for the rims) that I want! I posted it when back when when I found it via Hilltop glossy

Anybody can help a girl out and help me find this bike in this awesome color??

lynn in love with photos

Hi y'all!

We had a blast in Disney World! My face got a little too much sun, but we had amazing weather, fun rides and wonderful memories with the family. If you're going to DW, April is definitely the time to visit!

I've been on the go since I've been back, with work and photoshoots and workshops.

But I finally got a new header and have been blogging over at my photo blog-site!

If you want to see what I've been up to, head over there! Lynn in Love Photo

lynn in love with march madness

I confess, I don't know much about basketball, much less college basketball... but I do really enjoy March Madness and all the friendly competition it brings. I love it when people root for something!

This year was particularly fun, as the Huz's alma mater Cornell made it into the playoffs! He was so proudthat he got us all t-shirts to wear. Although we didn't go all the way, it was fun to cheer for the Big Red as they made it to the sweet sixteen!

lynn in love with the biscotti

Yes, peeps. I've been a bad, BAD blogger. I'm sorry... I truly am. It's not that I don't anything to say, cuz I do! It's just LIFE has gotten in the way. In a good way... with starting a business, looking for a new job, hosting friends at our place, living and LOVING life is just a a priority right now!

Anyways... meanwhile I have a second here, while I wait for my couple for an engagement session, to post a couple pictures and recipes for the next week!

Love you guys, and hope you're enjoying spring and all the goodness it brings!

First up: I found a lovely new baking blog, http://www.joythebaker.com/
Seriously, it is all kinds of yum!

The first thing I made was Cinnamon and Sugar Biscotti!
It was quick and easy and all kinds of tasty. Perfect with a cup of tea or coffee, or stuck in a mound of ice cream!


Ingredient: 2 cups flour, 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt, 1 cup granulated sugar, 6 TBSP (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature, 1 egg, 1 egg yolk, 1 tsp vanilla

For Topping: 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 1 beaten egg (for brushing biscotti before baking)

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and arrange two baking racks in the upper portion of the oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Set aside. Also whisk together the cinnamon and sugar for the topping and set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, fit with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Scrape down the down and beat in the egg followed by the egg yolk. Beat in the vanilla extract.

Add the dry ingredients to the creamed butter all at once. With the mixer or just with a spatula, bring all of the ingredients together until a somewhat stiff dough is formed.

Divide the dough in two on the two making sheets. Shape each half of dough into a 9-inch long and 1 1/2-inch wide log. Brush with the beaten egg and sprinkle very generously with cinnamon sugar. Bake the two sheets on two different racks in the oven for 20 minutes. Rotate the cookie sheets for even baking and bake for 20-25 more minutes until golden and firm to the touch.

Remove from the oven but keep the oven on. Let biscotti cool until able to handle. Using a serrated knife, cut logs into 1/2-inch wide diagonal slices. Place biscotti cut side down on baking sheet and sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar. Bake again until pale golden, about 10-15 minutes.

Store in an airtight container for up to one week.

lynn in love with the photography parlour

Hey Dolls!
I'm so excited! My photography business is finally official!
Lynn in Love Photo, LLC is legit and I couldn't be more proud. I've got lots of lovely spring shoots ahead of me and I've upgraded my gear to the most awesome Canon 5DMII and 50mm 1.2 lens and I can't wait to rock it out!
You can check out my work over at www.lynninlovephoto.com

Meanwhile, in February, I got to attend a little Dallas Photography Shootout and I wrote it up at a new photography site called the Photography Parlour. It's a fantastic site featuring new and old photographers and their work. For you photogs out there, I think it's lovely new place to build community.

Check out my feature on the Dallas Photog Shootout and be sure to peruse the site!
