I just got back from visiting Stacie in Nashville and we had so much fun! I was there for a week and our days were jam-packed but it still feels like I need to go back soon because there were so many other things we didn’t get to do! Nashville is pretty easy to visit because it’s so small so it’s super easy to get around. I swear, every time we went anywhere it only took about 15 minutes. We circled the city a few times each day and ate a ridiculous amount of food. I also loved looking at all of the colorful murals around the city and I couldn’t resist using them to showcase some of my new clothes from thredUP, an online consignment shop. You’ll hear a lot more about my trip over the next few weeks, so keep checking back!
For my Sunday Funday this past weekend I decided to finally checkout the Nashville Farmers’ Market! The NFM is open almost everyday of the year and has a pretty large area for vendors! Much bigger than the Sunday farmers market I used to go to in LA! The Nashville Farmers’ Market has an indoor area with permanent restaurants and then there are sheds on both sides (one for the farmers’ market and the other side is for crafts/flea market).
With it being towards the end of “growing season” and a rainy Sunday afternoon, there wasn’t a ton of vendors there but there was still plenty of options especially for pumpkins!
I ended up buying a few small pumpkins to decorate the kitchen table and then some apples. It was fun to wander around and see what all the options were.
In light of me now living in Nashville and it being Thursday, I thought I would do a Throwback Thursday post to when Molly and I went to Jeni’s Ice Cream on our sister trip to Nashville earlier this year! Jeni’s had been on my list for awhile but I always ran out of time on my previous trips. We almost didn’t have time on this trip either but decided to make a quick stop at the 12 South location on the way to the airport. I was definitely glad we stopped- Jeni’s lived up to all the hype!
The line was out the door when we arrived but it actually moved pretty fast and there was plenty of seating inside. While we waited we took goofy pictures and scoped out all the favors. They have this really cute chalkboard menu listing all the flavors and toppings.
Wow! It seems like all I’ve done these past two months is travel – from moving across the country, to work trips, and vacation trips I’ve been home in Nashville less than I’ve been away! Yes, that’s right I can officially call Nashville home and I couldn’t be more excited!! It’s still surreal to be able to say that – but I’m definitely happy to be here and looking forward to exploring the city more!
I have exciting news to finally share – I’m moving to Nashville in August!! I’m beyond excited for this adventure! Obviously, I’m sad to be leaving Los Angeles and all my friends here (that have really become family) but I think this move is really going to be great for me. I have visited Nashville a few times with work and have always had a fabulous time – which is really what sparked my decision to move. I’m looking forward to exploring the city, eating ALL the southern food, and listening to some great live music.
I have to admit, brunch is my kind of meal. Well actually, I like breakfast a lot but early mornings are not really my thing. Now being able to sleep in and still get breakfast foods when I wake up? Whoever came up with this whole brunch concept is a genius in my book. When Stacie and I were in Nashville we researched several places to have Sunday brunch but we ended up at Marché Artisan Foods. Like every other restaurant we ate at during my trip, it only took about 10 minutes to get to but the wait was an hour, and apparently no one in Nashville has heard of reservations. Still, the food was really good and the atmosphere was nice so I’m glad we went.
