after spending christmas in knoxville with carter's family, we drove to nashville to celebrate my birthday and ring in the new year with mine. i'm not sure about you, but for us, each visit home means a week of eating, drinking, and celebrating something so you better hope you packed your favorite yoga pants because that's really all you will wear! of course, this visit was no different.
we made sure to stop by burger up because to this day, it's my favorite burger and the truffle fries just can't be beat. i had to have an acai bowl from franklin juice co because it felt more like summer than it did winter. we made plenty of coffee runs to frothy monkey and high brow brew. and we finally got to check out the flipside - they have a 20$ bloody mary that is a meal! we chose a basic one.
i spent a few extra days at home to make a doctor's appointment i'd waited six months for. i was able to stop by one of my favorite shops, imogene + willie, and pick up a few new records at grimey's. the best part was that i got to spend some quality time with my family and our new dog, gracie. being home is always so good for my soul.
