Nashville Y'all


We went to Nashville!  Never been before but am happy to report I'd go back.  Beautiful city full of history, passion, THE NICEST people, and my god, man, the food!!!  Nashville offered everything a good vacations does; we stayed at an Air B&B blocks away from Music Row, fabulous boutiques we don't have at home, Vanderbilt, and had the absolute most amazing weather to explore in.

All that said, it was the residents and the culture in this city that won me over.  It offered a hustle pace with small town hospitality.  People actually wave and halt in between high rises and super powerhouse record companies saying "go head and cross the street".

Now with any obligatory vacation recap post, behold!  A ton and a half of photos:


Pancake Pantry.  This was the number 1 place every person before, during, and after has said "did you try it?"  Every Uber driver offered this up without hesitation when asked where the one place to go is.  The line was like this every time we went by, as it was only about 3 blocks from where we stayed.
 
Most perfect pancakes this side of the world!  Bold yet true

***I'd also like to note we tried Hattie B's and my word, life is forever changed.  I mean the traditional way the chicken sandwich is served is perfected and should be preserved in history as one of our country's biggest accomplishments.  Want to solve world peace?  Hand out these sandwiches at UN meetings.


 We also went to Biscuit Love.  Twice.  No shame in this repeat, it was out of this world.  Those cheese grits?  They're "stone ground" and you will dream of them:



Broadway is quite possibly one of the most fun strips I've been on.  Again, you encounter more charm through all interaction and there is no shortage of honky tonks.  I mean, it's Nashville, obvi!


There was beautiful street art all over and cool little nooks and crannies rich with history:
 
 


 I'm obsessed with visiting old churches in towns.  This was Christ Church and it was established in 1894.  Pictures do it no justice at all.  What a gorgeous, intricate body of work:


Remember how I mentioned those fab boutiques right by the place we stayed?  I speak from experience on their fabness.  Meet Marcia, my newest addition in the souvenir department.  I don't do key chains but I surely do accessories:


I'll go back to visit Nashville again.  Too good of a time in too beautiful of a place not to.

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.
