Summer Project

A few years ago while I was shopping in downtown Franklin, I ran across the sweetest quote painted on a piece of framed plywood. Like most other folks on a budget, I decided to take a picture of my finding (aka inspiration) instead of purchasing it. That did the trick for a while, but this summer I decided it was time to finally try to recreate that fun artwork using lyrics from one of my favorite worship songs instead of the quote.  

After spending entirely way too long in Lowe's one afternoon browsing the types of wood and paint swatches, I enlisted the help of my Pepaw to cut my newly purchased plywood. He obliged and even taught me a few tips along the way. Love that man.

Next, it was time to paint...

I could not be more happy with the way this project turned out! You can listen to the song here.


"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 6:5-9

Nashville in Pictures

Shopping in downtown Franklin was a first on our to-do list. We definitely weren't going to let a little rain stop us. True girls at heart.

All the necessities in life... sweet tea, key lime pie, and a good friend to share it with.

I promised my friend, Jessica, that I would seek out some old barns for her to photograph if she would ride with me to Nashville. Win-win, I say:-).

Channeling my inner Eva Shockey. Not really.

We met Wilbur the cow... err pig. You can read more about him here.

We had late night coffee at The Well Coffeehouse with a few of my Nashville favorites.

Can anybody name the restaurant where this bad mama jama came from? 

Need I say more?! Haha!

Okay, so I may have promised my friend, Jessica, I would also take her cowboy boot shopping if she came to Nashville:-). Let's just say I kept my promise and our trip down Broadway was a success!

And last but not least... a selfie with a horse, of course.


Thank you, Jesus, for sweet memories and even sweeter friends to make them with.

Nashville Playlist 2014

Since I am packing my suitcase for another road trip with one of my best friends, I figured it would only be fitting to share my latest playlist. I realize alot of the songs are older, but that's how I roll these days:-).  Enjoy!


*I think you have to have a Spotify account in order to listen to the songs. Make sure you scroll down to see the entire list if you're interested.
