My Life in Pictures: Reflecting on Advent, Prepare

Advent is waiting, preparing.  Some of that is quiet and still.  But sometimes preparing is action.  Is movement.  Sometimes the acts of preparation become as joyful as the event itself.

Who is Sidecar Adventures?

I'm just a Girl with a 1975 BMW R90/6 rigged to a 2006 Ural Retro Sidecar and a 2002 BMW 1150GS rigged to a DMC Sidecar. This is the story of my life on the road, in the garage, in my kitchen, my closet and, on occasion, in my makeup collection. I'm a Femme with a wrench, you have been warned.
