48 hours in nashville

nashville1

full disclosure: i’ve lived in nashville my whole life, so this 48 hours is not necessarily how i would do a weekend in nashville, but i’m happy with it.  maybe there will be a part 2 in the future.  i like that idea.

we had a guest in town this past weekend and we did our best to cover as much ground as humanly possible in 2 days.  many drinks were consumed and many ubers were taken.  i’m still tired…and full.

10 trips to take in your 20’s

as i’ve mentioned before on to take the train, i realize no one stops here for life advice, but sometimes the best inspiration comes from unexpected sources.  a couple of weeks ago, buzzfeed posted the video you see above.  it was a nice, big kick in the rear end for me.  i’m 32 now and haven’t seen any other parts of the world.  i spent a lot of my 20’s trying to get ahead and forgot how to live (to some extent).  going through a divorce, a tragedy or a big life change will often remind you of what’s important in life as well those things you’ve been missing out on.  it’s time to get out of my comfort zone and see the rest of the world.
