when mr. b and i first met, we went out and bought a vespa on a whim. we used to zip up and down the san francisco hills, exploring our city with a sense of freedom and wildness. when i got pregnant, we put the vespa into a corner of the garage and there is has remained for the past two years, collecting dust and all but forgotten....until recently. a few weeks ago, we decided to take the vespa out of it's corner of the garage, dust off the cobwebs, and take it for a spin in the warm summer air. holden loves pretending to drive it and it's now become our go-to date night vehicle, the perfect summer ride. our next purchase might just have to be the mini vespa for kids so holden can join us.
