Yes, guys I used part of my day off to go to the

YALE UNIVERSITY ART GALLERY 

After a morning at my favorite coffee shop pouring over the future of www.beautifulshadesofme.com, I decided to continue my relaxing day with one of my favorite things, ART.

My daughters and I have taken this trip after church but somehow we missed this section of the gallery.

Walking in about 30 minutes to closing, I was looking for pieces that I’ve never seen. There it was across the lobby, double glass doors.

ANCIENT ART

My GLORY! Ancient Egypt collection of art and statues! This is such a beautiful section of the gallery! My second favorite to the African American exhibit!
