Smell Ya Later, Nashville
As I mentioned last week, I took a weekend off (four days, to be exact) and flew to Nashville. I stayed with my sweet friend, Gowa, who I met through the internet. When we first met up in person, we had already been friends for months via texts, emails, etc, so when it was love at first sight earlier this year, neither of us was surprised. We share a million common interests, so spending 4 days with this pal was nonstop fun.
She lives in this darling little cabin in the woods and we had fires in her wood-burning stove every morning as we planned our day. This place could not be more charming. Straight out of a book. She has a really great Etsy shop full of handmade leather goods, so you should definitely check it out if you're looking for gifts this holiday season.
We shopped, went to honky tonk bars, saw Jenny Lewis (!!!), went to the Opryland Hotel, ate like kings, and heard SO MUCH great music from local bands. It's crazy how talent-saturated Nashville is. Everyone I met was amazing.
It was nice to have a weekend away, but you know how great it always feels to get home. I'm getting back into the swing of things today, as I have lots going on this week, but it's great to be back in Missouri... though it did snow while I was away and I was a little jealous I had to miss that. The trade off was worth it, I guess. ;)
Happy Tuesday, friends!
