When I think back to the first date I had with my husband, what surprises me is how ordinary it was. However, some version of that conversation has been going on for 13 years now, and that first date ended up leading to the rest of my life. For instance, we pay $60 per year to be members of the Detroit Institute of Art.
We simply met at his house, and talked from our hearts for an entire rainy afternoon. But we get in free, and get tickets to all the special events. Even if you don’t buy a membership, art museum entry fees are usually cheap anyway.2. If you have art supplies, why not hang out at your house or apartment and make some art together?
