Hey, bloggers! One thing that I really love about Richmond City is the art scene, and how everywhere you turn there's something beautiful to look at -- be it murals, statues, art shows, or even just plain old graffiti. Another thing that I really, really love is supporting local artists and small businesses. I think that's really important, because where would we be without the creative backbones in our communities?
Each week I want to spend a little time highlighting some of the things I've discovered, and I'd love for you to include some links in the comment section of things you have found as well!
One thing that caught my eye this week was this amazing print I found on Etsy. Maymont Park is one of my favorite places in Richmond, and this spot is a favorite for many weddings and outdoor parties. I encourage you to check out Art Skark Designs -- maybe you'll find an adorable print of your city!
Another obsession that I have is The Bungaloe Market, and although this isn't really ''Richmond'' related, I thought I'd share anyway.... because I can't tell you the amount of time I spend each week drooling over this shop! I love this knit hat, and a friend bought me this cowl for Christmas and I've worn it almost every single day (kind of sad it's getting warmer and I'll have to put it away for a while)!
Last but certainly not least, is one of my favorite places to look at art in Richmond -- Art Works. Sean and I had our wedding reception here, and every now and then we like to visit and look at all of the local art on display. They have a ton of cool things going on this month, and if you happen to be in the area I highly recommend checking them out!
[On an entirely different note, it's been exactly 1 year since the transplant. I don't really feel much different, other than a dull pain in my side that seems to come and go - which is normal. Mitchell seems to be doing ok for the time being, and my kidney seems to be working for him a little better than it had been several weeks ago. Crazy to think that this time last year, I was in a hospital bed! Time really flies, and this year has taught me so much about living for the moment and living life to the absolute fullest!]
