cheers to what’s to come

To say the last few months have been a whirlwind is an understatement. Over the last six months, I’ve had more success than I’ve had in my twenty-four years of life. I closed on my first real estate transaction, closed on my first home, got out of the hospitality industry, and landed a job asContinue reading “cheers to what’s to come”

music city series: Broadway

As a local, I generally try to avoid downtown, especially during the busy seasons, but Sunday was an exception. Since I started working downtown, my coworkers have continuously said, “Michelle, come out with us,” and I finally did it. Sunday, I got off work around 3 pm and headed to Broadway for an afternoon ofContinue reading “music city series: Broadway”

music city series: Arrington Vineyards

For a girl who doesn’t like wine, I had so much fun at a winery. A few weeks ago, we celebrated my friend Taner’s Bachelor Party at Arrington Vineyards and had a full day of wine, clothing malfunctions, and laughs. Arrington Vineyards has been open since 2007 and is about 40 minutes from Nashville. YouContinue reading “music city series: Arrington Vineyards”

music city series: downtown update

This past weekend, Mayor John Cooper lifted the mask mandate for outdoor settings, while still recommending them when social distancing isn’t possible. As I walked downtown on Monday afternoon, I was happy to see that approximately half the downtown patrons were still wearing masks on the streets. Masks still have to be worn inside restaurantsContinue reading “music city series: downtown update”

new music friday: Taylor Swift

The middle schooler deep inside me has never been more excited for an album release. Taylor Swift has finally released Fearless (Taylor’s Version) with six brand new songs, “From The Vault.” I’ve been waiting for this since the day she threatened to re-record all of her albums from her Big Machine contract. All the lyricsContinue reading “new music friday: Taylor Swift”

i’m back

Wow! It’s been a little while since I posted, but I’m back at it again. In my post starting off the year, I talked about taking more time for myself and posting more, but that isn’t how these past few months worked out. I’ve been working, trying to grow my confidence, and figuring out howContinue reading “i’m back”
