a glimpse of Nashville

Ha. I know I said I wasn't going to post for awhile, but I guess I can't help myself. I have a lot of friends who don't instagram, so I'm trying to post my adventures here as well.

Ryan and I went out to Nashville this last weekend to scout out neighborhoods. Flying into Tennessee our plane was struck by lightening in one of the craziest rain storms I've ever seen. The wing right outside our window was hit. It made a loud clap and a strong "thud" was felt through the whole plane. People screamed, and the flight attendant promptly announced for us to all "take a breath, this kinda thing happens all the time ya all" which by her voice I could tell it didn't. Then we had to sit on the runway for another 45 minutes because the lightening was so severe, the ground crew could not come out to guide us to the gate. As we drove to our hotel, there were trees blown over in the road and leaves and branches everywhere. A proper introduction to the city I suppose.

Nashville is beautiful though. I can't get over how green everything is. So many trees!

We ate at some amazing restaurants, met up with Ryan's new boss and wife, caught a outdoor informal concert with Buddy Miller and Emmy Lou Harris and got a personal tour of Hatch Show Print. It was unreal.

I tried to soak up as much as I could. It all still feels very overwhelming at times. Our house is officially up for sale and I feel this nervous almost first day of school feeling as time winds down here for us in Utah.
