I couldn’t really post our Nashville without sharing this song to go with them. In my rushed blurb about our trip, I forgot to mention the music. Of all the live bands we heard, I think one of our favorites was Marcus & Billy, and of all the songs we heard, “Wagon Wheel” became the sort of unspoken official track for our trip. The song’s got a little bit of history — originally sketched by Bob Dylan, first recorded by Old Crow Medicine Show, and recently made famous by Darius Rucker — but of all the covers I could find online, this one caught my ear. These two are super talented, and this version reminds me most of the music we heard during our time in Nashville. I hope you enjoy the song, and enjoy the weekend! (Song starts @ 0:36.) =)
My friends have sort of a love/hate relationship with my photography skills. They love the fact that I take all these wonderful photos when we’re together, but I’m pretty sure they all hate that it takes me four months to go through them, clean them up, edit them, share them and post them anywhere. Oops. =)
Back in January, we took a quick little weekend trip to Nashville to celebrate Tina’s 30th birthday. It was 48 hours of eating, drinking, singing, dancing, and exploring. It went a little something like this: We arrived, we checked in, we ate lunch, we drank whiskey, we had an amazing dinner, we bar hopped downtown. We woke up, we hit up the farmer’s market, we ate some kettle corn, we rented bicycles, we got lost (oops), we turned around, we rode through Printers Alley, we toured Ryman Auditorium, we bought some Hatch prints, we drank
some a lot of margaritas, we went to Tootsie’s, things got a little fuzzy after that. We woke up again, we had an amazing breakfast, we checked out, we took a cab 16 miles out of the way to get ice cream (it was worth it), we peaced out.
Not the most descriptive travel post I’ve ever written, but I’m afraid people will stop posing for my photos if I keep procrastinating on this one. If I linked to anything above, I’m recommending you check it out. =)
