weekend in nashville :: nashville photographer

I hope everyone had a very happy Easter! Josh and I just returned from a trip to Nashville to visit my family and boy did we have a good time. Nashville is very near and dear to my heart - I moved there from Mississippi right after I graduated high school and went to Belmont for my first three semesters of college, Josh and I were married in Nashville at the beautiful Scarritt-Bennett Center, and now, my family lives just outside of the city!

Every time I go to Nashville, I go with an agenda. This time, that agenda included having Shipley Donuts for breakfast (no Shipley in NC and they are my FAVORITE), taking a drip to downtown Nashville for the first time in over a year, and indulging in a Las Paletas popsicle (the absolute BEST popsicle you've ever tasted in your whole life)...


You can get one here at Hot & Cold in Hillsboro Village....        


and this is the face you make when you eat one because they're just so darn good. Mine was cantaloupe.




After we cooled down with that delicious treat, we headed to the waterfront to take a stroll down Broadway, which was packed with tourists. There's never a dull moment in downtown Nashville... the proof is in the pictures...


There were real Barbie dolls on the hood of this burger van.

These guys were awesome... who can resist a pup with dreads and sunglasses?!
