I have no clue why I take these annual favorites so seriously, but I do, so here we are!

The leaves feel like they're changing too fast this year... like I don't have enough time to savor the changing season. 

In 2020 it looked like this.

I had the absolute pleasure of checking out Perrine's "Le Pop Up" last week for a tasting of some Australian wines. 

I have reached a stage in life where I wake with coffee on my brain - even when I'm away from home.

I had looked up cafe's near the hotel we stayed at the day before, so I was ready for a quick stroll for my quick fix. 

Crema was less than a mile away, and even though it was hot, humid, and not the least bit scenic, I queued up some Kirk Franklin and made my way on over. 

I had the absolute privilege of visiting Cane Creek Vineyards for my birthday last week, and it was such a treat. 

The views were stunning. The wines were delicious. The nibbles were a perfect pairing. 

Sharing a few more snaps from the Joss Stone concert in May, because I finally got the film developed. Loved, loved, loved being back in the Ryman Auditorium. It's such a great space for a cozy, intimate concert.

Had a mini getaway to Nashville with one of my oldest, dearest friends last week and it was much needed.
