Year 2/Day 204

Year 2 - Day 204

I finally got around to going to one of those wine and paint places today.  I dragged along Michelle and we were determined to have a great time.

Success!!  :)  What a blast this was!  I was worried that my painting would look awful, but I think it turned out great.  Michelle’s looked awesome too!  The neatest thing about this class was that everyone was creating a similar painting, but each one looked different.  They all had a bit of the person’s personality in it which really gave each piece a unique characteristic.

I love this!  I can’t wait to do another one!  :)

Year 2/Day 198

Year 2 - Day 198

Will had to run some errands downtown for the estate and instead of trying to hassle with parking I just dropped him off and drove around.  While driving I found an interesting place to stop and take some pictures and walk around for a little bit.  It was very peaceful and quite.

We also decided to have one cheat night and had dinner at Longhorn Steakhouse.  I figured this would be a good place to get something kind of healthy.  I got a small filet steak, salad with raspberry vinaigrette (on the side), and broccoli.  We didn’t get any appetizers or desserts and I only had one piece of bread.

…But…

I still managed to feel gross afterwards.  Bloated and greasy.  Yuck.  Not the greatest idea.

One thing I love about cooking with fresh fruits and veggies is how colorful everything is.  It’s hard to stop taking pictures so I can actually cook the stuff.

Spent a little time outside in the cold taking photos of flowers.  Didn’t stay too long though…cause it was cold! :)

Year 2 - Day 192

Today was awesome.  My favorite poet, Anis Mojgani, hosted an Open Studio at Serenbe.  He had been nominated to attend a month long artist residency at Serenbe and today he opened up his studio to folks to come check out what he’s been working on.  It was a like a little sneak peak into his creative mind.  Simply. Amazing.  We talked with him for a little bit and purchased another copy of his new book.  He was kind enough to sign it and take a picture with me.  :)

What an amazing experience.  He is so down to earth, yet magical and inspiring.  He also mentioned that he was hoping to do a reading towards the end of February…which I will do whatever I can to make sure we attend!

This showed up today.  :)  Will actually had these sent to the hotel in North Charleston while we were there this weekend, to say thank you.  Unfortunately, I had already checked out of the hotel before they arrived.  It’s so cute!
