A MORNING IN MEMPHIS.

7.01.2013








before leaving for the north, we had to deliver a trailer outside of memphis, tennessee.
neither of us had ever been after living most of our lives just a few hours away. besides the blues
and barbecue, there's nothing else that appeals to me. luckily, good tunes and food is all this girl needs.
we packed up and hit the road, driving across the entire state and arriving in memphis around bed time.
after a good night's rest, a breakfast buffet and a stormy friday morning, we made the delivery with time to spare.
we decided to check out historic beale street. thankfully, it was early and the streets were bare. we wandered throughout
a. schwab for almost an hour. the store is 137 years old! and they have every thing you can imagine there. i also loved finding
a record shop. we grabbed an early lunch on beale before driving down to the riverfront. the mighty stinky mississippi. the optimist
in me tried to give this town a fair chance, but the morning storms left dreadful humidity and a lingering stench.
memphis, we will try this again sometime...

  1. I've never been to Memphis, but I would love to go. I've heard a lot of people have the same reaction as you, but I would still love to visit! My husband and I are planning a trip to Nashville sometime next year - would love to hear places you recommend!

    1. Yeah, honestly I was pretty sure I would react this way about Memphis. I've heard stories all my life about it. I'm sure if you lived in the area, you'd know all the secret non-touristy spots. But I went because you're right, ya just have see beale street! I really hope you get to visit Nashville soon. I love hearing about people's trips and hope you take lots of pictures. I actually just did a post about my trip there last week and it is filled with names of my favorite spots. I'll give you a quick list of some of my favorites : Coffee // Barista Parlor [East Nashville] . Fido [Green HIlls] . Frothy Monkey [12 South] -- Food // Mas Tacos or The Pharmacy [East Nashville] . Edley's BBQ [12 South] . Jeni's Ice Cream, Bobbie's Dairy Dip or Las Paletas for dessert! Check out the outdoor shopping center in Green Hills, there's Anthropologie, West Elm, Paper Source and a mall nearby! Centennial Park and Shelby St Pedestrian Bridge are fun little trips too! Please let me know if you make it! I'd love to grab coffee with you if I'm in town! :) xo
