Today was a big day for this city-dwelling college student! I now have student membership to the Art Institute! It was a gift from my parents for Christmas/Senior year, and there couldn't be anything more perfect. Student membership is actually an incredible deal, and it includes perks like access to special exhibits and free coffee and tea in the cafe.
The Art Institute feels like a safe haven in a bustling city, and I can't wait to spend more time there in the next year. If you're ever in the city, come visit me and I'll take you there! I get to bring someone along for free entrance to the museum, and I would love to share the joy with you.
Here's to many more refreshing, good-for-the-soul days filled with beauty, bright light, history, and creativity. Although the semester started off roughly (as it always does, right?), today gave me hope as I was reminded that homework can be a joy when the Lord provides and sustains you...even with the gift of a safe place like the Art Institute.
Needless to say, it was a breath of fresh air today.
