Inspiration, Nashville

Let’s Get Reacquainted

Nashville, it’s not you, it’s me. Really. I see myself slipping into a quiet, homebody comfort with you after seven short months, and it is completely unacceptable. You have so much to offer, and I need to be taking full advantage of everything.

Yes, I’m taking new classes, trying new restaurants, hiking new trails. It has been wonderful, but sometimes doesn’t feel like enough. I’ve got free time to fill and have started a springtime bucket list of adventures for us. (Some of them have already been checked off, but need to be revisited.)
