This past week, I spent time finalizing my plans to transition to Nashville, Tennessee. Honestly, when I originally set out to make the drive, I was only traveling to play a gig at Chick Fil A ; however, I ended up getting a lot more than I bargained for. God works in funny ways like that.
My first day in Nashville, I spent some time visiting my dear friend Bailey McBroom at Eighth and Roast, a hot spot off of 8th Avenue South minutes away from downtown.
This was one of the most lovely spaces I spent my time in this past week. And trust me, I spent a lot of quality time at Eighth and Roast. But it was well worth it. I caught up with some friends over a cappuccino, got a considerable amount of work done, and even read a little bit. Needless to say, I highly recommend the coffee bar to any local or tourist alike.
Speaking of lovely things, look at this kitty.
Every morning I woke up to this little guy curled up beside me. Bailey’s new kitten, Gunner, is perhaps the most precious kitty I’ve ever encountered. Just look at him! He looks like Toothless. He’s such an adventurous, adorable little cat.
Speaking of adorable things…..
I know this is a bit of a throwback, but how could I avoid posting a picture of Marshall? The Soda Parlor is not only a delicious spot for a date, but has a plethora of old school Nintendo games you can play for free!
Marshall has been in Nashville since the start of his internship, and it’s been awesome to listen to him speak of recording, playing, and studying music. It’s so awesome to see someone so talented throw themselves into their passion. I’m super proud of him, and excited to see what this season of life has in store.
One of my oldest and dearest friends lives in Brentwood, Tennessee. Megan and I met in dance class, at four years old.
This was captured before an afternoon spent with Megan, which was most refreshing. We talked of future plans, dreams, and aspirations. Just moments before I had learned that I got the job I applied for, what exciting news to share with her!
Starting this month, I’ll be working three jobs. This was a major source of provision straight from the Lord, and I am so thankful for it. I love the music industry, and I am so grateful to be officially working in it!
I extended my stay in Nashville from Monday…to Tuesday…to the following Saturday. I had far too many people to meet, catch up with, and make plans with!
Here is my final snapshot of the journey, leaving from a brunch at The Perch in Brentwood.
I am enthralled by this adventure that lies in front of me, and ready to share with you all.
