Meet Me In St. Louis

We're home! I survived last week although I came back to a lot of demands at work. I left on Friday with one boss and came back today with a new one, but that story is for another time.

Last weekend my family visited from Missouri and we went non-stop. I'm starting to wonder how both my parents and in-laws have more energy than I do. Hopefully I'll be that energetic in my forties!

Before heading to St. Louis, I gave my family a quick tour of Nashville. They have been here several times, but we visited a few places that they had never been. We managed to go to a few places I had never been either which was fun.

Since the weather was perfect, we headed down to Centennial Park to see the Parthenon.

We went to the Opry Mills Mall to do a little shopping, but on our way we stopped at Cooter's. My brother Drew is the biggest Dukes of Hazzard fan you will EVER meet. Sitting in the General Lee made his whole trip. He couldn't stop talking about it.

Saturday we were up early and off for St. Louis to watch the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cards lost, but it was still a fun game and a great time with my family.

It was hard to watch them leave, but we had a wonderful time and can't wait for next year's family vacation!


  1. It is well worth a visit. There are a handful of them in that area: Forsyth Fabrics, Lewis, The Silk Trading Company. Really a wide variety of fabrics, good quality, affordable price points, and ALWAYS changing. The fabrics (for the most part) are in stock...you just choose, they cut the bolt to the yardage amount you need, and you're out the door in no time.

  2. Great photos, especially the one of you and your man. It's so great you've gotten to see so much family! - Ash
