July 24 2014

Do you? or any other city, for that matter? Next week, I (Tara) get to head back to my hometown for a few days to attend our annual Painting with a Twist franchise conference. I love getting to head back for a few days, catch up with my old lady friend Nola, see some of my best friends and family. The food is amaze-balls, of course and music and merriment abounds. It is great feel the jazz in the streets (not so much the urine-smell), to meet up with other studio owners and our corporate team to re-energize to the PWAT KoolAid. All that being said, it also makes me appreciate why we chose to move to Charlotte to begin with. I may be a Nola-girl, but I am slowly becoming a sweet Carolina girl too. What is it that you miss about home AND what is it that you love about our Queen City? Send me an email to let me know: charlotte@paintingwithatwist.com.... | Read More
