this weekend B. participated in the Denver Century Ride – it was his first metric century! that’s 100km people! It’s impressive!

he has been training for about a year! at first I really wanted to do it with him! but, then I went to Brazil  and did not train for months, and then there was winter and vacation, which means, I could never accompany him this time! maybe, next time?

it was a very emotional day, to say the least! we could not sleep the night before! him: anxiety, me: he was tossing and turning in bed! by 3:30am we were already having breakfast and an hour later we had left the house!

I followed his ride through twits, an awesome app, and when we was 45 minutes from the finish line, I headed back to Northfield to great him!

DSC08041 DSC08039 DSC08042when B. was arriving – the fourth person to cross the finish line, btw, the children’s parade was happening! so, that was a let down, as he did not get to cross the finish line on his bike!

DSC08044 DSC08047 DSC08050 DSC08048he did it! and was super exhausted! so exhausted he picked a fight with me and we didn’t get to enjoy the post ride party! but, happy, super happy to have accomplished this!

congratulations on your first century, B.! you are amazing!

i’m a few weeks behind on my 52 project but I’m still having a lot of fun spending time with B., observing him and thinking about him during this series!

last week, he woke up on a horrible mood, we had little stupid fights and then, to make up, he took me to the movies to see The Purge! I’m obsessed with horror movies and thoroughly enjoyed this new concept!

B. looking super serious, as he does when I take his pictures!

I hope he really is enjoying NYC because I miss him so! before he left, I took him for a walk around our neighborhood and lunch at the tex-mex place! we both had some delicious tacos and guacamole and felt so full that the walk back was tough!

I still managed to steal a few flowers from a corporate building on our way! but that’s story for another day!

have a happy week!

I love this picture of B. and I also love how much he loves riding his bike!

We’ve been talking about our hobbies a lot lately. The way I see it, back home in the East Coast, life did not really permit us to have hobbies and follow up on them! You have family and friends around and any free time you have from work you are spending with them!

Here, since we are alone, there are not those situations: “oh, it’s Sunday afternoon, lets go have lunch with my mom!”

It’s more like: it’s Sunday afternoon, lets go on a bike date! The two of us!!!

And it makes me happy! It’s a healthy, happy hobby and he includes me as much as possible!

Do you have a hobby?

This weekend we tried to enjoy the beautiful weather outside and Denver was full of events! Our first stop was the Horseshoe Flea Market! Denver lacks a lot in terms of support of the arts! To find this new flea market was a relief! It was incredibly well put together, with local vendors of some fantastic handmade goods, art, cosmetics, food!

B. was specially interested in the food trucks! we got to try food from two of them and just loved our choices! we also got goody bags full of awesome stuff from the vendors!

Thank you B. for been an amazing company!

B. is such a generous man! This 52 series has been so good to us! I took the time to stop, breath, take a look at him, the love of my life and reflect who his is!

This week, after I made many mistakes that led to us missing a flight to Barcelona, B. was able to forgive me! I need to desperately work on forgiveness! If we had missed a flight because of him, believe me, it would probable become a serious issue e a big fight!

I try to appreciate those with talents I don’t have! And his talent for forgiveness is remarkable! He showed me why what happened was great! Better than what we had planned! We took a bunch of day trips around Madrid! Spent time with my family, he got to see a Real Madrid game he was dying to see! In the end it was amazing! We had an incredible time!

I also realize I need to leg go! Learn to let go of plans! Unexpected things are the best!

I’m so thankful everyday to wake up besides him! B. is such an admirable man! It’s such a relief to me to have a relationship with someone I look up to everyday! Someone who has the biggest heart in the world!

I love you B.!

B. has been the most amazing travel buddy! We were in Madrid and he was returning to the city after 11 years! He took me to his favorite spots, including Parque del Retiro, where I took this picture! We rented bikes, rode around the entire park! It was an amazing time! This trip has been everything I ever dreamed and much more!

Thank you, B.!
