Last weekend Jeremy and I took a quick trip to Nashville. We left the kids at home with Maca so it was a great mini vacation. We took overnight Mega buses there and back which was perfect except for one young man who needed convincing that, despite how expensive his headphones were, or how amazing his jams may be, nobody else wants to hear them at 2am. I may have not handle that situation in the most graceful manner.
We got to Nashville Friday morning and after cleaning up a bit we went to Marche's in East Nashville for brunch and then explored the downtown.
Friday night we had some crazy good food at an acclaimed local restaurant City House - the building is also very impressive.
Saturday morning was my favorite part of the whole trip. Our friend Joni took us to a hiking trail where we marveled at Tennessee's beauty and enjoyed the almost 70 degree weather.

Sunday was church, exploring Nashville some more, delicious food, and a midnight bus ride home. It was a bit of a whirlwind trip but a large blessing all the same. Such a treat to explore a new city - especially with someone as wonderful and knowledgable as Jon,i our tour guide. Not to mention the extended child-free time with my man.
