star-crossed in the atl

I have been lucky enough to gain some amazing friends while living in Nashville. One of these fantastic friends is Jessica Craven. Jess was one of my many roommates in Shelbyhouse. She is a student at Belmont University and a singer/songwriter. You can check her music out HERE. Jess bought tickets for her and meContinue reading “star-crossed in the atl”

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”

new music friday: Tigirlily

Throughout my years of living in Nashville, I have met some amazing artists. While attending Belmont, I had a class with Krista and that’s when I was introduced to Tigirlily. Tigirlily is a singer/songwriter duo made up of Krista and her sister, Kendra. Over the last year, it has been amazing seeing them blow upContinue reading “new music friday: Tigirlily”

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”

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”

music city series: Old Glory

Before Halloween, some of my girlfriends and I tried out Old Glory, which is a one-of-a-kind bar here in Nashville. Never did I expect to walk into a dungeon-like room and find music, drinks, and laughter. The history behind the space is unique. With a smokestack standing tall, Old Glory sits in the former boilerContinue reading “music city series: Old Glory”

music city series: Burger Republic

About a month ago, my grandparents were able to take a trip from North Carolina to visit me here in Nashville. Whenever they come to town, we try to find the best food to eat. Last year when they visited, we ate at one of my favorite burger joints, Burger Republic, and this year weContinue reading “music city series: Burger Republic”

new music friday: Kelsea Ballerini

When Kelsea Ballerini released her self-titled album, Kelsea, in March, I didn’t listen to the whole album. With her latest release, Ballerini, I feel more compelled to listen to her stories. In my opinion, Kelsea was a overly produced, pop leaning album, while Ballerini shows all the same songs in a different, light-hearted way. IContinue reading “new music friday: Kelsea Ballerini”
