Nashville

Filed under: Friends, Travel — sashyjane @ 12:26 pm

My friend Sarah and I got away for the holiday weekend.  We took a quick trip up to Nashville and back.  We’d planned to drive up Friday afternoon, go out, enjoy Saturday and Sunday then drive back Monday at a leisurely pace.  Instead, it took us TEN HOURS to get from Augusta to Nashville on Friday because of the snow and traffic in Atlanta.  Once we got there, we decided to cut our trip a day short and head back on Sunday because of the snow scheduled to hit Nashville. While a bit disappointing, we still enjoyed our time.

I could absolutely live in the record stores downtown.  I also became quickly infatuated with this place.

If you love design, typefaces and just all around cool printing stuff, you must visit this place.  I could have stayed in there all weekend and spent some serious $$.

We wandered through the Opryland hotel a bit and then caught some live music.

I had to stop by Dolly’s souvenir store.  How does this woman stand up and how do her organs function?!

On Sunday, we stopped in Franklin, TN and ate brunch at Puckett’s. Delish and adorable.  I’m ready to pack my bags and move to Franklin!

I left my SD card in my laptop so I didn’t have it with me when we were strolling through Franklin. The above and below are “borrowed” from the internet. Hopefully I’ll get the pictures from Sarah soon.  Adorable shops, incredibly nice people and gorgeous houses. I could honestly move there tomorrow.  I love their seasonal banners on the lamp posts.

After walking around a bit more, we headed back to Georgia where the snow had melted and turned everything to mush.  It was nice to get away for a bit and I have a new favorite go-to city when I need an escape. What did you do this weekend?

  1. I spy a fat cat on the printing press! Looks like a good time. I’m sorry your trip was cut short–but I guess that gives you even more reason to visit again soon!
