Hi everyone! Happy March! Long time no see, I know, I know. I’m happy to announce that from here on out I’m going to (try to) start posting regularly again. At one point in time I was posting three times a week (usually Monday, Wednesday and Friday) but for now I’m going to try to commit to at least once a week. (And then slowly increase to twice a week and so on).
Now that it is officially March and we’re approaching the one year mark of the pandemic, I thought why not do a little walk down memory lane. In today’s post I wanted to talk about one of the things I’ve really been missing lately: my museum visits. (More specially, visiting art museums). First world problems, I know. Trust me, this pandemic has effected my life (and so many others) in more ways that I could ever describe but I wanted to keep it semi light hearted!
An ode to all my favorite art museums:
Happy Thursday. I was suppose to post this Wednesday/Yesterday but I had to stay late at work. Anyway…I’m so glad it’s finally Thursday because I’m at Disney World! Yay! I’ve missed my second home/ Disney World so much. I’m forever grateful that I have a job/work for a company that allows me to travel so much.
Speaking of traveling, I spent last weekend (well, like a day and a half) in DC. While in DC I got to visit the National Portrait Gallery. As so all know, I love me some museums! (And this one is exception).
Here are some photos from the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.
It’s official, I LOVE Canada! Even though I only spent a week there, I feel like I got to see SO much of Toronto. I’m telling you, if I ever decided to move to another country, Canada is at the top of my list.
(I mean, Canada’s healthcare system alone is reason enough to move there/become a citizen!).
I did a lot of research on “Things to do in Toronto” before my trip and one of the places I knew I had to visit was Graffiti Alley. Graffiti Alley is essentially exactly what it sounds like. It’s a collection of long alleyways where you can view graffiti from various artists.
And you all know how much I LOVE street art.
Along with the Disney Parks and Target, I’d definitely have to say that museums are one of my “happy places!” I don’t know what it is but I could spend hours roaming the halls of any given museum. It doesn’t matter if it’s an art, history or science museum, I love them all. I’m so fortunate to have grown up (and still live in) in Chicago, a city filled with dozens upon dozens of amazing museums.
As I’ve mentioned on the blog countless times, plenty of Chicago museums offer free days to Illinois residents. One of those being the Museum of Contemporary Art, which offers free admission on Tuesdays. Thus making “Tuesdays At The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago” a regular thing for me!
There have been so many new exhibits added since my last visit to The MCA, to see the Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats its Own Leg Exhibit. That’s what I love about museums, no matter how many times you visit them, there’s always something new to see.
Here’s a few of my favorite photos from my visit to The Museum of Contemporary Art:
Happy Monday everyone! Is it just me or does it feel like summer is going by super fast (which is a-ok with me since it’s my least favorite season!)? Last weekend was jammed pack with so much exciting news! First, there’s going to be so many awesome chances coming to the Disney Parks (I just LOVE D23 weekend!) I can’t wait for all the new attractions and all of the upcoming Disney and Pixar films. Also, have you heard the news that the 13th Doctor is going to a woman (finally!). I’m super excited about it and I can’t wait to see Jodie Whittaker in action! Speaking about TV shows, can we talk about last night’s Game of Thrones!?! Definitely worth the wait. Okay, enough chit chat, now on to the regularly scheduled blog post. I talked about this in my Why I Love Living in Chicago post but one of my favorite things about Chicago is the fact that not only do a plethora of world-class museums call Chicago home but a lot of them offer FREE admission/discount days. Since the Museum of Contemporary Art offers free admission (to Illinois residents) every Tuesday, I like to spend my Tuesday afternoons there exploring all the new exhibits and artwork. Ever since the Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats its Own Leg Exhibit opened at MCA last month I’ve been meaning to go by and see it, so I thought “hey, there’s no time like the present!” Continue reading
