have you seen the summer’s eve commercial, “manly mistake“? where the husband accidentally uses the wife’s feminine product in the shower and seriously overcompensates by doing an excess of manly activities. well that’s how I felt after a week of moving. I was lifting boxes I couldn’t, but my competitive spirit had me tackling multiple flights of stairs with 50+ lbs in tow.
then breathing like I ran a marathon. I was in desperate need of relaxation, wine, and girl time.
the same day I turned the keys into our old apartment was the grand opening of des moines’ own pinot’s palette [a painting & wine studio]. I’m convinced this was a sign from the universe was telling me I needed to go & unwind.
synopsis: you bring your own wine + snacks [but don’t worry, they have glassware]. and an instructor will walk you step by step through the night’s painting.
to say I was nervous about how
or if my painting would turn out is an understatement. I like being artsy, but I’m not good at it. luckily there are professionals to guide you & they’re so incredibly helpful. and my finished product is a masterpiece, in it’s own right :)
not to mention ms. iowa girl eats just happened to be my painting neighbor. and I met some of the sweetest people!
needless to say, I’m already planning my next visit. either with the fiance, or a group of friends. whoever you’re with, you are sure to enjoy yourself.
thank you erin & pinot’s palette des moines!
