Last weekend's trip to Nashville was the
Some highlights included...

Getting lost looking for antique stores in Franklin
Sipping grapefruit shandy in our favorite beer garden
Hands down the best burger + sweet potato fries we've ever had
Randomly stumbling across Musicians Corner outdoor music festival in Centennial Park
Long walks through the dreamy 12 South neighborhood looking for MIA T.Swift
Sweet tater pancakes at The Pancake Pantry
Checking out the famous Honky Tonks on Broadway
Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams grand re-opening {holy Brown Butter Almond Brittle!}
Pretending to be Elvis at RCA Studio B
Scoping out Belle Meade for our dream southern mansion
Drowning ourselves in whiskey caramel lattes and hipster vibes at Barista Parlor
Taking in the hiking views at Lake Radnor State Park
Playing cards while waiting for our turn to fried chicken it up at Loveless Cafe 
Driving through Percy Warner Park forests, windows down, taking in smells of oak and hickory


Nashville, we see you! They don't call you Nashvegas just for the heck of it, and you sure didn't disappoint. Thanks for the memories - The Evanses will be back {with boots on} soon!

    Sooo glad you took the Loveless Cafe - the wait is totally worth it :)

    You're making me want to go back...again and again!

  5. I love exploring too! And when I start to indulge my travel bug, it only makes me want to adventure MORE. We were sitting on the airplane and I was already talking about the next! :) And thanks, I was feeling groovy! haha...

  6. Definitely loved it! So so so good! And of course, you should go back and visit STAT. I'm already to go back too! ;)

  7. Ohhh now I have to go to Nashville! It looks like such a great time! Glad you had fun!

  8. You guys did so much! I love all of your photos :) I'm so glad you had a great time, Meg!

  9. This is on my list for weekend getaways, it looks amazing! We're heading to Minnesota this summer and I'm pumped.


  10. This looks like so much fun! Nashville has been on our list of places to visit for a while, so when we go, I will definitely be coming back to this post, and emailing you for more recs! :)

  16. I'm so jealous!!! I wish I had a must visit reason other than the fact that I'm obsessed with Nash! Yes, you HAVE to go to The Pharmacy... and then drop a burger and some sweet taters in the mail for me ;) (ew...)

    I'm going back to Nashville in August and I'm DEFINITELY going to have to check a couple of these places out! Tell me more about those pop tart looking pastries?! Were those from Barista Parlor? The whiskey caramel latte sounds so delicious!

  18. Ahhhhh! Can I go WITH you?! ;) Ye, those pop tarts are from Barista Parlor and are heaven on earth! After trying both the strawberry and the cinnamon sugar, we both decided the strawberry is best! But don't miss their homemade donuts or their biscuit breakfast sandwiches... wowza!!
