We got a scooter.

We figured we ought to take advantage of living in a downtown area and get this sweet scooter we've had our eye on for a while. It's a 1984 Suzuki FA-50, and it's so cute! I'm still too scared to drive faster than 10 mph, so people hate me on the road, haha. I love it, though, so I'll keep riding until I'm comfortable. Franklin, on the other hand, is a natural. He's gonna start using it to get to work! I wish I were that cool, haha. But I'm not. I did take lots of pictures with it, though! haha. Also, we decided to name it Milo. Perhaps, if we ever get another one (which, we want to!) we'll name that one Otis, heehee. I hope you get the reference. I watched that movie on VHS so much that the tape broke.

It reminds me of the Mobylette that Nino Quincampoix rides in Amelie, sigh! Which makes me all the more smitten with it. Unfortunately, our little guy has weight restrictions, so we can't ride two up on it, like they do in my favorite scene in Amelie, ahh! Maybe we can break the rules for just a few seconds? Just to satisfy that daydream, maybe. Yes.

Well, it's a really nice day, so we're going to take turns riding around, and maybe hit up the nearby arcade. BY THE WAY, I am like, super obsessed with pinball now. So I've been wearing a fanny-pack filled with quarters all week! Okay, well, have a great weekend, guys!



  1. aah - it's awesome! And you should definitely get another so you can zip about together :)

  2. Awwww Elizabeth- I love this!!! It looks like it belongs with you :) :) You and Franklin are seriously the cutest couple ever, I love you guys :0) I love the little icon things you made with the photos- you should make them into pins, haha! I've always sort of fantasized about a little scooter/moped thing. It's like a bike but with the power of a car (sort of) haha! Perfection! Also, about the yoga class- you should totally go for it! You would really enjoy it :) I get a little anxious about exercising with other people too, but if you get there a little early you can find a good spot in the back and maybe find a little corner where you don't feel like your being watched or anything. After the first or second time it gets a lot easier to feel comfortable. Let me know how it goes! :) Will be sending you a letter soon, have some things to update you with, things have been crazy lately!

    xo, Alyssa

  3. Sweet ride :] It reminds me of the movie, Roman Holiday
