(continued from this post... this one's more tourist-y and picture heavy)
Even though I only had about 8 non-working or sleeping hours to fill in Nashville, I crammed in about as much as I could and saw a fair bit of the city.
Friday night I walked around the neighborhood I was staying nearby, 12 South, stopping to check out Craft South and go nuts over the BEST fabric selection and all kinds of swoon-worthy textiles. I sort of accidentally went to a super fancy restaurant for dinner and ended up only buying an appetizer & a a glass of rosé because the prices kind of made my eyes pop out of my head but it was so good anyway and plus then I had plenty of room for…. the best ice cream cone of my life, a Brambleberry crisp and Churro from Jeni's.
Then I went back to my AirBnb and watched some episodes of The Office on my laptop and drank a ton of chamomile tea to chill myself out and try to get a good night's sleep.
Saturday morning I woke up early, kinda jacked up for the day, and took a long walk around this residential neighborhood in which every house looked like my dream home. Also I kind of got lost. But that’s fun too.
By Saturday afternoon (after the class videos were filmed) I was kind of mentally exhausted and my flight had been delayed so I had a few hours to kick around and do my very favorite thing: a long walk in a new city. I live for this. I walked from the Gulch to Downtown and back, stopping to drool over $3000 boots, fangirl at Hatch Show Print and totally hit my nacho and blood orange margarita spot at Saint Anejo.
Again... I feel so incredibly lucky for the experience that I had this past August. It's become one of those memories that I reflect on whenever I feel mopey or uninspired.
