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.
