Bucket List Adventures // Paint Date

Friday, July 31, 2015

We have really been making it a point this summer to soak up some of this extra quality time we have together to go on a few new adventures. Last week we tapped into our artistic (or lack there of) side and decided to take part in a wine and painting evening at a local restaurant.

We had an encouraging and enthusiastic guide (and no, I'm not just referring to the wine) that helped us through each step of the painting process. I have been to one of these events before with my girlfriends, and I am consistently amazed at what I can produce (when normally color-by-number is a bit more my gig) with just a little assistance. My husband and I had a lot of fun creating something together as well, and now we have two new pieces of wall art that have much more meaning, sweat and tears (okay that may be a little dramatic) behind them.

There are painting opportunities like this all over the country, and I feel like they are popping up more and more. I often see them on Groupon as well, for those of you who don't mind waiting for a good bargain. I must admit we both enjoyed the chance to be creative and productive while spending quality time together.
