We were invited to a wedding in Nashville and no way did I want to miss out on the opportunity to go. This was my first ever trip to Music City, and of course, I loved it. I could just feel the creativity everywhere; it was definitely far removed my experience of The South thus far.

We were only there for three days, but I’m looking forward to returning soon. Nashville is only four hours away from where we are in Mississippi, so it will definitely be an easy, weekend trip.

Graceland

How strange to walk through someone’s home and to see it so perfectly frozen in time. Above all, it was not grandness that fascinated, but rather, simplicity. The simplicity of what once was considered grand and the simplicity of what once was.
