The Writing on the Wall

On a recent trip to Miami to shoot for my B is for Box series, a dear friend of mine took me to Miami’s Design District as well as the Wynwood Arts District. The neighborhoods are full of some of the most gorgeous street art I have ever seen. One graffiti artist incorporated a large grate on the side of a building into his robot; another used the side of an entire building, blending the characters and trees in with the windows. I even got to see Captain America smoking crack! While I’m sure it happens, each artist is respectful of the next paying close attention as not to cover up or destroy the previous artists work. There were many new pieces popping up for Art Basel and I can’t wait to check them out during all of Basel’s festivities next week! Enjoy!

Daddy daughter bike ride

I was four years old when my dad attempted to teach me how to ride a bike without training wheels. No more
pink and white or fancy sparkly tassels for me. Instead, I was moving on up to a boys black BMX bike that was too big for me. Dad duck taped two small pieces of wood to the pedals so I could reach them and inevitably I fell, got upset and went back into the house. The next day I went next door to Mikey and Billy’s house determined to ride. They put me on their sister’s banana seat Schwinn Stingray and off I went and never looked back!

Thank you dad for giving me that initial push and continuing to do so today. Thank you for giving me my love of bikes. Thank you for your unconditional love. Thank you for teaching me to never give up. Thank you for going on a bike ride today even though it was my idea! Thank you for being you. Happy Father’s Day. I love you always.
