Painting…cocktails…friends…perfect!

One of my goals this year is to spend more time with girlfriends. I realized last year that I felt sad and disconnected from so many friends. We were all so busy with life, kids, husbands, etc…that we just didn’t see each other very often. So, a couple weeks ago I heard about this place called Canvas and Cocktails that just opened near my house. You meet up with friends, get a clean canvas, grab a cocktail, listen to some fun music and follow the art instructor as you paint a fun piece. I knew I needed to get out of my comfort zone and have fun with paint and colors:) So, I invited a couple close friends last night and we went. It was so much fun! Not that I painted a masterpiece, but I think my kids will be impressed at least. We chatted for 3 hours, laughed at ourselves, drank some wine, and left with a fun piece of art. What could be more fun?? You should all see if there is something similar where you live. So, I am committed to carving out girlfriend time every month and just make the time. I think I will go back to this art studio and do another class with my daughter. Does anyone else feel disconnected from the women in your life? Anyway, just thought I’d share. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings:)
