Waking Up in Nashville

Just yesterday I was thinking about how good life is right now...

Last week, in one evening Duke and I grabbed a bite at local dive The Bunganut Pig, met with a friend for drinks at 55 South for the Heritage Foundation, then cooled off in our apartment's beautiful pool.  It was just pure bliss.

Arrested Development, of course!

Saturday, I was able to meet up with some of my blogger buddies (Lladybird, Let's Go Ride a Bike, Blue Jeans & Melodies, Librarian Tells All, Kitty Cat Stevens, and That Girl in the Wheelchair) at Rumours for wine, bites, and lots of talking.  Read Jen's write-up of the night... it was just perfectly delightful and fun!  How lucky to have found such a great group of women in my first year in a new city!

Burger Republic's Four Cheese Garlic Burger w/Truffle Tots

Sunday, Duke and I went to the fantastic Burger Republic.  I had a Four Cheese Garlic Burger with Truffle Tots.  INSANE. IN THE MEMBRANE.  I think I still taste the garlic.  OMG.  We even browsed bikes at Halcyon.

Duke, home brewing

Then, in the past week, I had an awesome time testing out bikes at Harpeth, enjoyed a leisurely long weekend in Franklin, and celebrated Bear's 6 month birthday.  :)

Happy 6 Month Birthday, Bear!

Okay, so what's the point of this random list of things I've done recently?  I AM HAVING SO MUCH FUN.  SO MUCH HAPPY.  It's awesome.  I truly believe Nashville is one of the coolest places I have ever lived, and that's including France.  For real.  I just can't get over the kind and warm people I've met, the incredible foodie scene, the endless list of things to do...  it's perfect.  PERFECT!  Why have I been taking this for granted?

I'm awake, Nashville!  I see how awesome this place is!  And it's gonna get even more awesome now that I've had this epiphany.

Don't forget about my magazine subscription giveaway happening NOW!!!


  1. your Bluth's shirt is THE BEST THING EVER! i love it so much!

    can't wait to meet you at the next event, lady!

    1. I think Arrested Development is what brought me to my boyfriend. :) I love the shirt; it's from Busted Tees.

      I can't wait to meet you, either! Everyone talks about what a beautiful and fantastic person (and mom!) you are. :)

    2. arrested development also bonded me and my fella. In one of our first interactions, I asked him if he was gonna "R me". After that, he knew he had the right gal.

  2. So glad you have discovered your love of Nashville. Its a great city...and maybe I am partial because I am a native...but i really cannot picture myself anywhere else.
