we are in the middle of the mildest winter in as long as anyone can remember. and some days, that's okay with me. in tennessee where it doesn't snow, winter can just be ugly and miserably cold. so when the news predicted that we would have a weekend of snow in the same week of sixty degree temperatures, us tennesseans just crossed our fingers and prayed for a blizzard. okay, maybe just me.


in between the christmas and birthday celebrations, we spent the few days we had free out and about in nashville and franklin. we visited my favorite coffee shops like barista parlor, honest coffee roasters, and fido. with all of our coffee shop hopping, i made sure to wear my new coffee tree bracelet from the kula project. i urge you to check out their website and see the incredible work they are doing in rwanda! we did some window shopping in downtown franklin and the 12 south neighborhood. we spent a beautiful morning grabbing breakfast, checking out a few antique shops, and driving through leiper's fork. and we finished off the trip with a night of bowling at king's. 

as always, no visit is ever long enough! until next time, nashville!
