My parents drove up for another infusion and stayed for the weekend. It’s so nice to live close by again, and these quick weekend visits are always great for small adventures around the city. Recently we’ve been thinking about making the move from Franklin to Nashville, so this weekend was all about driving around and… Continue reading Nashville City Sights: Eat, Drink, and Be Merry
