Black, White & a Pop of Color

This weekend was really great, although it didn’t necessarily consist of anything super special (does that even make sense haha?) After being snowed in last week, it was a pleasant surprise to have weather in the mid-60s…even though snow was still on the ground! I spent the weekend putting the finishing touches on my bedroom, grabbing coffee with my sister, and exploring downtown a bit. Fun fact: I discovered this wall over the weekend and was able to meet the painter, as he was painting another wall around the corner. He runs a project called, The Art of Chase, and he goes around to different cities and countries painting his art on empty walls to liven up cities. I loved discovering this part of my city and it definitely brightened my day!
