+ pro-tip: there is a second, lesser visited "I Believe in Nashville" mural on Woodland Street on the East Side
+ this has nothing to do with Jacqui (though this was for dinner we made together) but my Marimekko tablescape, ftw!
+ gorgeous Burgess Falls, on the most beautiful day. Jacqui *really* got a driving tour of the TN countryside on Monday!
+ the Bay has the Giants, we have the Sounds & their cute stadium! baseball babez (guess how much of the game we saw.)
+ Jacqui calls this her Girl Scout pose (whatever that means.)
I'm staying busy over here, hosting friends in town (and getting ready to travel myself!) Jacqui flew in on Friday night (after working overnight- what a trooper!) and we immediately got dressed up and headed to Josephine for her belated birthday dinner (highly recommend!)
The rest of the weekend was a pretty perfect blend of going out and running around town as part of my Nashville "points of interest" tour (basically anything I'd mentioned in a letter), and sleeping in and just spending time together, over coffee, gelato, nature, Hart of Dixie, etc.
Jacqui is such a dear friend, that I had the privilege of being a bridesmaid for last year (engagement / bachelorette + shower / wedding / wedding offish.) All of that was a blast for sure, but I couldn't help thinking how nice it was to just spend time with her as my friend again :) some of you probably know what I'm talking about.
Nashville spoiled us with the most beautiful weather, and I was pumped to show her around my city for the first time! Now I'm halfway through a bizzay week- IRL and on the blog. Stay tuned!
