quick getaway

at ron and jeanne's

The kids were out of school on Thursday and Friday, so we headed to Nashville to see my sweetie aunt and uncle plus my cousin, Micah.

We were so sad when they moved to Nashville a few years ago, but after having visited, we are thankful that they moved to such a fun destination.  They have a beautiful old house with such great natural light that it is easy to move from one sunny spot to another, soaking up the sunshine and enjoying a book or just a lovely conversation.

There are so many things to do in Nashville that we could go again and again without exhausting all the possibilities.  Plus I will be making some repeat visits to places we went to this time.  Highlights definitely included the stuffed French toast and lemon raspberry danishes at Provence Bakery as well as the beet salad and sweet potato and coconut soup at Rumours Wine and Art Bar, a place to which Ron and Jeanne treated Taido and me to a date by watching our children AND giving us a gift certificate for dinner!  Taido said that alone was worth the drive to Nashville!  Also, Taido found a willing companion in my cousin to a music show he wanted to see on Thursday night, while Mary Polly got to be Jeanne’s date to the symphony.


We were sad to say goodbye.  We snapped these few pictures just before leaving, but we’re happy that it won’t be too long before we see them again because they have to come to Little Rock any day for the arrival of the first Walker grandbaby!  Very exciting!

Plus I hope it won’t be too long before we get back to see them!  Mary Polly is already missing their dogs, Sam and Clemey.
