I received a very sweet gift for Mother’s Day from my daughter. She planned a trip to Nashville for the two of us on her two off days and… off we went.
A Pun-Filled Trip
This trip was priceless. We laughed, we learned and we lounged. We had a pun time together. Yep, it was a pun-filled trip. We looked for puns along the way and laughed at our own silliness.
We ate at a “hole in the wall,”
chose “knot” to skip the garlic knots at a local pizzeria,
Really Entertaining Tours
We learned a bit of Nashville history during a fabulous walking tour where we found out exactly “who let the dogs out” and enjoyed great rooftop views from along Broadway Street.
Cute and appropriate tour guide.
A Bowl Full of Sin
Just in case you haven’t noticed there’s a new watermark on Heart for Dixie’s photos. I have a new photographer. She is most creative and does a fantastic job. We had such fun working together. I found her prices very affordable if you need a photographer. I highly recommend her. Her name is Amy and she is also my daughter.
Sweet Home Draper James
And then, my daughter named Amy, took me to the sweetest, most charming, southern boutique that my biscuit-of-a-butt has ever entered. We dared to grace the floors of Draper James. The one and only store in Nashville that Reese Witherspoon ever got gussied up in! It’s a store for people who love the south! It’s a store imagined and created by none other than “Melanie Carmichael”! I didn’t want to leave. Yep, they had me at, “Would you like a sweet tea while you shop?”
That would be a “YES, pretty please!”
Every southern table has a few books scattered for devouring and a bowl of fruit to contemplate.
Stand tall, all you southern boys! Sunflowers are your example to follow. Face the Son, and don’t forget that you know better! You know how to bring sunshine into the life of a southern woman. Come home with wildflowers, laughter, and a little sugar.
And when in doubt about the hard questions of life…. ask…
But, sometimes when quoting Dolly, the saying “Do as I say, not as I do,” is more appropriate. Dolly also says that you’d be “surprised how much it costs to look this cheap!” Reese never looked cheap a day in her life.
Tell Me Something Good
Thank you, Sweetie Pie!
