our next stop was at Arte and Wine and Painting Studio. this place was a dream for me. i haven't painted since high school and rarely in college, so it was great to have a paintbrush back in my hand. what's even better was that you can order delicious appetizers and of course wine while you paint. you have options of over 20 paintings to go off of or you can create whatever you'd like to. putting a little more pressure on myself, i chose to paint on my own. this little canvas will hopefully be going up on the baby's nursery gallery wall (whenever we get to it).
Le Reve. unfortunately it was a bit too dark in there for me to bring out my camera and annoy everyone with a flash. so no pictures were taken, but the food did not disappoint! and the dessert? to die for. i had a raspberry dark chocolate dome and it was gone in less than 2 minutes.
the whole day was so fun and great time spent with great friends. i was so happy that my new 35mm came in time. all these photos were captured with it, and i have a feeling it won't ever leave my camera now. sorry trusty 50mm.
all locations are in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.
