So many exciting things coming up! First, this weekend I have a student council retreat in Hecla Bay
I'm so excited to hang with the council, do 'cottagey' things, prep for our upcoming
and nerd out about art :) The following weekend I'm heading out to my friend Lauren's cabin for a Wedding Party weekend - Lauren asked me to be one of her bridesmaids so the whole wedding party will be getting know each other and beginning to plan for the big day. THEN at the end of September I'm going with Darrin and his family to New York for a week and in October to Chicago for the Fine Arts third Year field trip! I know - life is hard... I'm just excited for everything right now that nothing could rain on my parade
I've never been to New York before so I'm incredibly excited! We're staying in Soho and I'm planning mass amounts of gallery visits - the MOMA has free admission the night we get there so that is a must see
and of course the Guggenheim...
and my friend Leslie has a friend who was in Visual Arts with her at Brown and now has a studio in Chelsea so hopefully Darrin and I can meet up with her for coffee and to check out her studio! I found this great blog called artcat on New York that breaks down all the districts, the galleries in them and the upcoming and current shows so I will for sure be scouring that the week before our trip! I've already found a show in Chelsea that will still be running by the time I get there - the work is pretty haunting and intriguing...

Basically, I hope to soak up as much art as possible, stockpile it in my brain and apply it to my thesis. Darrin's sister, Nicole, is also a vegan (longer than we have been) and knows a few places in New York we're going to check out - one being Blossom - this is their tofu salad...
More trip research to come but if you've been to NYC or LIVE there and have suggestions on places to go/things to do let me know!
And as promised, here are a few photos from Darrin and I's canoe trip in Caddy Lake!
