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.

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!


Til we meet again,

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
