When Brandi K. won a year of free rent at the Albert Kahn-designed Garden Court Condominiums, we're sure she was too busy gawking at the building's classic architecture to think of her future career as a blogger-ista.
But we're digging this new city girl's chronicle of 365 days in the D -- especially a recent birthday post highlighting her 22 favorite Detroiters (Tulani Rose's Sharon Pryer, music man Rencen Coolbeanz and a homeless gentleman named Larry made the list).
I am insanely in love with Detroit for a myriad of reasons, but mostly, I
love that Detroit is genuine. You may ask, "what would someone who
wears belligerently huge afro wigs know about being genuine?" Well, to
me, genuine means being honest about who you are and what you have to
offer. I'm an afro wearing, art student who has never shaved her legs
and loves walking down Woodward and hugging strangers. Detroit is an
adventurous city with unpredictable weather, large potholes, bizarrely
amazing people and a phenomenal culture. The city and I, both, have
nothing to hide and a whole lot to share!
