My Downtown Safe Haven

I've been living back in Cleveland for officially two weeks now and I've finally had enough free time to venture off of Euclid Ave. and down into arguably my favorite place on Earth (NYC aside). It was the perfect weather for hanging out by the water. Sunny enough to keep you warm, breezy enough to keep you from sweater, and quiet enough to really relax.

Seagulls are really irritating, but for some reason today they totally added to the whole "relaxing" atmosphere. You win this time, rats with wings.

I sat down on the steps as usual and let my headphones take me away. What was on my sunny day playlist?

"Paper Knees" by The Careful Ones, "Bloom" by The Paper Kites, "Pines" and "Open Season" by The High Highs, "Meet Virginia" by Train, "Tiger Child" by The Young Romans, "After the Storm" by Mumford and Sons, "The Moon Song" by Karen O and Ezra Koenig, "Sadie's Song" by Katie Herzig,  "Riptide" by Vance Joy, "Boots of Spanish Leather" by Bob Dylan (listened to this one a few times, to be honest), and "Mango Tree" by Angus and Julia Stone. Only to name a few...hah.

Of course I had to read a little Vogue in my spare time, featuring the lovely Serena van der Woodesen Alpha Female Blake Lively.

So calm when there's not a home game, hah. Though I do love when the city feels alive on the weekends. The only downside to a downtown campus in the business district is that nobody is there on the weekends unless something special is going on.

Look at those nautical symbols on the building! I had to stop and take a few shots, of course. Reminds me of this Vineyard Vines bag.

I miss seeing the Key Bank building from my window, as I'm on the opposite side of residence hall this year. Boo. Now it's a treat to see it, I suppose. And that pesky sun just wanted to make an appearance in my picture.

And the round it off, my favorite building in the entire city. The US Bank building gives me life, guys.

How did you enjoy your Sunday afternoon?
