12 dates of christmas: art basel

i've wanted to go to art basel miami for years. and every december, without fail, a scheduling conflict has gotten in my way (who remembers grandma party?!).  this december though!  this december i live just up the street from the action, and i'm dating an artist who's never missed a basel.  it's been on our calendar for months, and we made a whole day of it saturday for our seventh date of christmas.  it was a crowded, beautiful, rainbow-hued doozy of a date.  we started at some of mark's favorite galleries in wynwood, home of those walls i love so much, zig-zagged across miami, and closed down the convention center well after sunset.  we saw an overwhelming amount of incredible work; it was such an intense thing to finally experience.  i got goosebumps knowing the walls had been painted just hours before i saw them, and i was humbled to find myself face to face with a basquiat.  it was the longest, loveliest day, and the photos i snapped don't do it justice!  days like saturday are my favorite kind with mark.  we set off for one adventure that always leads to a few more, walk until our legs ache, and laugh when we realize how much we've done in an afternoon.  so glad for these bright moments with my guy.
