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: 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

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

Nashville City Sights: Radnor Lake

The holiday season is officially here, and we’ll be driving to see our Mississippi family for Thanksgiving later this week. I love this time of year, but already it feels so rushed. I’ve been making lists at double speed lately, and there were plenty of things on the list to get done over the weekend,… Continue reading Nashville City Sights: Radnor Lake

We’re All Here Because We’re Here

Sometimes this blog is heavy on the craft chat, sometimes chit chat, and sometimes book chat. I consider it a lucky week when I get to go to not one but TWO book-related ventures, both at the War Memoirial pavilion near the Nashville Public Library.  I’m a big fan of John Green’s books, from The… Continue reading We’re All Here Because We’re Here

Nashville City Sights: Southern Festival of Books

The Southern Festival of Books is one of my favorite Nashville traditions! When we first moved here in 2014, I was super excited to find out about this festival and to see one of my favorite authors, Lev Grossman (again!), to get his latest book signed and hear behind-the-scenes tidbits on the making of the… Continue reading Nashville City Sights: Southern Festival of Books
