We’ve lived in Tennessee for almost a year now and I realized that I left a pretty big cliffhanger regarding our recent adventures in adulthood. I’m sorry about that-everything happened so quickly I’d forgotten to write about it. After my husband and I returned from our trip to Chicago we only had a month to prepare to move to a new state. Yes, one month. In that time I had to break our lease; find a new job; resign from my old job; find a new apartment; pack and find moving company; and my husband had to study and take the Georgia Bar Exam. It was a very hectic month.
The move itself was a bit rocky. The moving company we used turned out to be very unprofessional. Our first week in Tennessee was spent camping out on the floor with the kittens. It was fun getting to spend time with my husband. I have a lot of new favorite memories from it-like how much fun it was just to binge watch Fixer Upper and eat pizza on the floor. Our first impression of our new town was “this reminds me of Alpharetta.” It’s filled with several shopping centers, malls, and every chain restaurant imaginable. It’s nice to have so many familiar places available, but it took a bit of time to actually discover the character of the city because of it.
By the end of the week our friend Amanda came to “camp” out with us on her way home to Wisconsin. It was so much fun having a familiar face come visit us. We went to Broad Street and explored the bars and honkey tonks along the road. There were so many bachelorette parties there! They were various sized groups of matching women staggering around the street. It honestly made me wonder what my bridesmaids and I looked like when we went to the Buckhead strip for my bachelorette party🤣 everyone there seemed like they were having a good time.
Oh! This is also when I discovered my favorite thing to do in Nashville. I love the monthly art crawl the city hosts. The art galleries in the arts district open their doors for free gallery viewings and they also provide free drinks. It’s booze and art, those are like the best two things ever. Another favorite thing of mine is discovering the street art and coffee shops in the city.
Nashville is a very interesting place to be 🙂
