Last weekend Ian watched the boys and I took a special little flight out to Nashville! My close friend Carolyn has been living out there for a couple years now and it was the first chance (between all the pregnancies and newborns) to be able to visit! We had such a wonderful time just hanging out. We actually realized that it had been over 8 years since we had hung out together just the 2 of us!

The first night after I arrived we grabbed some sushi at Whole Foods and went to watch Shakespeare in the Park under the stars. It was so much fun and it was the perfect introduction to the city. The following day we headed out to hear some live music. She had already bought tickets to hear the Civil War, and I fell back in love with going to music shows. There is just something about being in an audience and watching as well as listening to beautiful music!

The next day we drove out to the country a bit and visited the horse, Sam, that Carolyn had been leasing. Then, we headed a couple miles over to a local vineyard, lay out a picnic and lounged the day away in the shade with a beautiful view. We also made sure to get all dressed up one evening and "hit the town", which I am proud to say, when we hit that dance floor we could still groove with the best of them. :)

I also had a chance to meet up with an old friend from Cali, Christi Rush, who had moved to Nashville with her husband a few years prior. It was such a fun filled girls weekend and I soaked up every minute of it! Here are a few pics from my trip.
