This weather we have been having makes me so so happy! The 60-70 degree weather is to die for, and I can’t wait until it is here all the time. This kind of weather makes the wait for spring a little unbearable, and I cannot wait. The April flowers are so gorgeous, and St. Louis in the spring weather is so charming. The Art Museum is opening their famous exhibit: “Art in Bloom,” and I am so excited to walk the halls of the art museum, the exhibit is absolutely breathtaking. Watercolor is one of my favorite art forms to do and to see. I encourage everyone to get outside this weekend, enjoy the beautiful weather. Also check out the “Art in Bloom” opening on February 24! I am most excited for the beautiful spring weather and a fabulous trip to one of my favorite St. Louis staples: the art museum!
This is my first time blogging with Fontbonne and I am pretty excited to see how it goes this semester. I am a second semester senior at Fontbonne and I have truly enjoyed my last three and a half years here. I still can’t believe that graduation is just around the corner, but I know God has a plan for me once it comes around. For the last three years I have been on the Women’s golf team at Fontbonne and I have made so many friends while on the team. I have made so many memories in other cities and can’t wait to tell you more about my adventures on the golf team as my final season approaches. I have also been a member of the service organization on campus at Fontbonne for the last three years and I really enjoy taking other students to service sites off campus.
I have lived here in St. Louis my whole life and I am a die hard Cardinals baseball fan. I am also an only child and I have a dog back at home. I am very close with my family and I enjoy traveling to different parts of the United States with my immediate family. I can’t wait for my new adventure with my parents in May to discover a few new cities. Stay tuned to hear more about life at Fontbonne and who I am.
Even though fall already started few weeks ago, I still want to share the different fun activities I have done during this season. I am not a fan of cold weather, but right now it’s kind of a mix between cold and hot so its fine.
I went apple picking for the first time and it was very fun. We had to walk through the apple orchards looking for good red or green apples. Personally, I prefer the green ones. It was really tasteful having fresh apples.
The week after apple picking I went to Eckert’s farm for the evening. It was a great day very sunny and the sunset was beautiful. There were different things to do there, like, games, giving food to kangaroos, and spending time around a warm bonfire. When the night came we had smores and hot dogs, they were delicious.
I appreciate this kind of activities that Fontbonne University offers, especially if you are not from here it is a great way to know more about St. Louis. So far I have enjoyed fall season. I can’t believe we are already in the middle of the semester, time is flying like crazy. I hope everyone is enjoying fall season too.
With it being officially fall what better to join the weather and the leaves changing colors then visiting Laumeier Sculpture Park.
One of their most recognizable sculptures.
Located off Rott Road and only 20 minutes from the Arch, Laumeier Sculpture Park is a must see! You can spend all day walking around discovering all the sculptures that this park has to offer. There is so much talent lurking around each corner and behind each tree. But, make sure to grab a map so you don’t miss anything! The park is free and open from 8 am until sunset. Oh, and did I mention it was FREE?! Take a group of friends and visit this fun and astonishing park, take lots of pictures, and even a lunch to enjoy.
