Farewell Nashville

I keep saying it, but I just can’t believe how fast this summer has gone by!

I spent Sunday on a farewell tour with Anne Elizabeth, one of the sweetest people I have ever met.  She picked me up and we went to Urban Grub down in 12South for brunch.

Then we were off to the Arrington Vineyards for a wine tasting.  The vineyard is owned by Kix Brooks!  The wine was fantastic, but nothing could beat the views.

Anne had seriously thought of everything that I couldn’t leave Nashville without seeing. Next we went to the Historic Downtown Franklin.  The homes were so gorgeous, I just love little areas that have been preserved like that and there seem to be a lot in Tennessee!

Next stop was a master planned community, like Seaside near Destin, FL.  The community is built so that if you don’t want to you never have to leave.  They have doctors, dentists, grocery stores, a pool and clubhouse, and everything you could need right there!  Such a neat idea, and the homes were absolutely gorgeous!

So many people had told me about the Loveless cafe, but I knew it was a little ways out of Nashville, and everything I read talked about how long the wait was to dine there.  So I never ventured down there, until Sunday!  We saw the pretty Natchez Trace Bridge and then made a pitstop at the Loveless Cafe!

We stayed busy, as I’m sure you are thinking right now…. Anne knows how much I love the show Nashville, so we went by the country club and she pointed out the house that is used as Rayna’s house on the show, and also her father’s house!  I just think it’s so awesome that the whole show is filmed in Nashville!

And as if the day hadn’t already been absolutely awesome, our next stop was a Jana Kramer concert.  I joked on our way over that I bet Brantley Gilbert would be there too, since they’re engaged.  We hadn’t been there ten minutes and were walking around… turned a corner and there they both were just talking!  It was so cute he sat right beside the stage just bobbing his head through her whole concert!

The perfect ending to the perfect farewell tour of Nashville was dinner at Virago.  The best view of the city with the sweetest Nashvillian ever!

So thankful to have met her and spent this wonderful day saying goodbye to Nashville.  Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me on this journey, it’s definitely been a summer I will never forget!

For the last time….
