Mother’s Day Out Adventures

Amelia started going to a 2 day/week 9AM-2PM preschool program in August, and it’s been a great experience so far! It took a few weeks for both of us to adjust; she had never spent such long amounts of time with adults (and kids) other than family, and I hardly knew what to do with… Continue reading Mother’s Day Out Adventures

Franklin City Sights: Noble Springs Dairy Farm

My longtime friend Sarah came for a visit this weekend, and after years of fifteen-minute catch ups, it was great to spend some quality time together! Of course a weekend centered around a toddler’s schedule was spent close to home: walking the neighborhood, dinner downtown, Netflix after bedtime (Kim’s Convenience: very cute!), a visit to… Continue reading Franklin City Sights: Noble Springs Dairy Farm

Franklin City Sights: Williamson County Fair

It’s our third year going to the Williamson County fair, just five minutes down the road from our house. I love this tradition and I think Amelia does too! Last year she loved the people watching and music, and this year she was all about the animals. In three years of going to the fair,… Continue reading Franklin City Sights: Williamson County Fair

TBT: Valley Forge National Park

I never properly blogged about our quick trip to Pennsylvania in early June, but whether it was recorded for prosperity on the blog or not, it still happened! (Will prosperity ever actually look at this blog? Who knows. But I find myself with a rare moment to blog, so I shall continue documenting.)  My parents,… Continue reading TBT: Valley Forge National Park

TBT: Radnor Lake

A couple weekends ago, we visited Radnor Lake for the first time since Amelia started walking. Hiking the forest trails and wandering along the crumbling highway by the lake is always a treat, but the experience is a lot different with a toddler! We didn’t get nearly as far and stayed on high alert the… Continue reading TBT: Radnor Lake

Girls Weekend in Memphis

It’s hard to keep up with friendships on top of daily life, especially as everyone scatters far and wide, but it’s been tradition to meet up with two of my friends for a weekend without spouses or children or pets, and we finally made it happen again! We met in Memphis for lunch, a trip… Continue reading Girls Weekend in Memphis

Mississippi Moments

Tis the season for graduations! Yesterday we returned from a quick weekend trip to Mississippi to celebrate two more graduates. We didn’t actually make it to either of the ceremonies (blame the toddler) but we managed to fit in lots of food, family, friends, not one but two baby-free outings (lunch AND a movie!), and… Continue reading Mississippi Moments

Franklin City Sights: Main Street Festival

It’s been a couple years since we’ve made it to the Main Street Festival held in downtown Franklin, but it finally happened this year! We expected the usual festival fare and probably came with a “been there, done that” attitude, but we ended up having a lot more fun than we expected; now that Amelia… Continue reading Franklin City Sights: Main Street Festival

Franklin City Sights: Dickens of a Christmas

Franklin has a ton of events downtown, but I think Dickens of a Christmas might be my favorite one! This is our third year to go, and I love the Victorian costumes, carolers and musicians roaming the streets, and shopping up and down Main Street. This year we were joined by my friend Emily and… Continue reading Franklin City Sights: Dickens of a Christmas

Franklin City Sights: ‘Tis the Season

We didn’t plan it this way, but December 1st kicked off a weekend full of festivities. On Friday night, we headed to downtown Franklin for the Tree Lighting. The next morning, Amelia met Santa (she was NOT a fan) in our neighborhood. Then that afternoon, we headed back downtown to watch the Christmas parade. We… Continue reading Franklin City Sights: ‘Tis the Season
