Beauty is everywhere.

I have lived in Wisconsin all my life. I grew up in Wauwatosa, which is a suburb of Milwaukee. While on spring break in Mexico during my Junior year of high school, I called home to check in. My parents told me there would be a for sale sign outside our house when I got home, we were moving to the Third Ward, downtown Milwaukee. I was promised a ride to school and a large closet. Obviously I was thrilled for the closet, but leaving all my friends and childhood home of 16 years was hard. By the time I was in college, living downtown was amazing. I walked to classes in college, was within 5 minutes to all the bars and restaurants and was two blocks from the Summerfest grounds.

My rant about moving goes into my point about appreciating the city you live in and making the most of it. If you don’t like the place you live and have any control of making a change, do it! Life is too short to not value your surroundings. What made me come think of this blog post was this beautiful mural I found in an area I wouldn’t necessarily go to. My favorite thrift store is in not the best area of Milwaukee. While vintage treasure hunting, I stumbled upon this wall on the side of an apartment building and made it a point to come back to blog it!

Moral of the story, you find the most beautiful things in the places you would least suspect them. Beauty is everywhere, just take a look!
