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: 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

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

TBT: Historic Franklin Quilt Show

I went to a local quilt show a couple weeks ago, and since it happened during my blogging break, Throwback Thursday seems like a good day to share some photos and revisit the show hosted by the Cumberland Valley Quilters Association (CVQA) a couple years ago too. The CVQA has only hosted a quilt show… Continue reading TBT: Historic Franklin Quilt Show
