Today I wanted to give a shoutout to the Nashville Bloggers in my sidebar, who are all wonderful people I am acquainted with in real life. As in face to face. Meeting bloggers in real life feels so meta!
When I first moved to the area (like a year and a half ago, y'all!), I started following some local blogs to learn more about my new city. That led to some Twitter conversations where I believe it was Jenna who was like, "What, you're local? Come meet up with us!" I remember agonizing over what I was going to wear, buying a dozen mini bundt cakes so I wouldn't show up empty-handed, and heading nervously to Lauren's house to meet these women who I felt were infinitely cooler than me.
Not only were they awesome, they were so warm and welcoming! That one meetup, where I felt so embarrassingly awkward has led to Twitter convos, movie/dinner/lunch lady dates, shopping trips, and carpooling to our monthly gatherings. It fascinates me how unique each person in the group is!
So I'm taking this post to push you to check out these ladies in my sidebar. Because chances are, one of them is the perfect fit for you... I mean, there's knitting, restaurant reviews, law school, outfit posts, sewing, book-making, baking, reading, homemaking, CATS!, makeup/beauty, babies, TV/pop culture, vintage, cycling, kitschy, home decor, hilarity, SWEARING, and our handsome significant others with varying levels of tattoo ink and facial hair.
I'm proud to call these girls my friends, because moving here would not have been the same without them. Read their blogs, because you'll love them just as much as I do.

Note: I departed before the Gray's photo op to go take an Accounting Final.
Full of regrets, for many reasons, and because ACCOUNTING.
