bonnaroo bound – first stop, nashville

greetings from manchester tennessee!!! we made it to bonnaroo last night after a long day of travel and exploring nashville…



fp jemma and i caught an early morning flight down to nashville and spent the day there as we waited for two other fp girls to get in. which was totally fine with us because we got to check out the scene downtown and do some shopping :) downtown nashville was one big party because the country music festival is going on this weekend too.











we had to take our picture with elvis real quick before we got away from the crowd downtown and drove over to south 12th street to check out imogene and willie, the store i blogged about the other day that i’ve been wanting to go to. and sure enough, their dog was right there in the window to greet us!






they had some amazing vintage belts.  the guy and girl who were working were extremely nice and told us that the kings of leon come in all the time! after imogene and willie we made the quick drive over to venus and mars, the vintage shop owned by karen elson. this store had a cat sitting on the patio to greet us :)




the store definitely felt like the home of some incredibly fashionable grandmother with racks of vintage dresses and garments in various rooms that are furnished and decorated with antiques. the wooden steps creak as you walk upstairs and there’s even a room with a bathtub overflowing with vintage treasures.






there was an adorable coffee shop right next door with outdoor seating where i could spend hours sipping coffee outside and reading a book.




and a great place to stop for a beer – 12 south tap room!

next stop bonnaroo!

leelee, it really is a great place for inspiration. i think sometimes it has a reputation of being only about country music, but there is so much more to this wonderful city. It is not the way it is portrayed in mainstream country music. Though the honky tonks and cowboy boots are undeniably a huge part, and an equally wonderful part, of Nashville, there is also a thriving art and fashion community, as well as all genres of music. I’ve lived here for 5 years and i truly love it, I can’t even imagine living anywhere else now.

Can you believe this wonderful city was under water a month ago? Lives were lost. Over 2000 people lost their homes. Downtown was flooded from 1st to 3rd up to the second floor. These incredible people have pulled together to recover and repair their city, their own homes and lives, and reached out to their neighbors and complete strangers. Nashville is an amaging community that photos will never capture. We appreciate everyone coming into town to enjoy these two events and assist us in getting back on our feet.

When they compared the “official” vote results with a
print-out of the vote “projections” broadcast by the TV
networks on the final election night, they found that channel 4 had “projected” with near perfect accuracy the
results of 40 races with 250 candidates only 4 minutes after the polls closed.
“The medical examiner’s office has confirmed that Jesus Huerta died from a gunshot wound to his head,”
Lopez said. They had a phone number and business address to give

Awesome issues here. I’m very glad to peer your article.

Thanks a lot and I’m looking ahead to touch you. Will you kindly drop
me a e-mail?

Hi this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise
so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there great website! Does running a blog such as
this require a great deal of work? I have no understanding of computer programming but I
had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
Anyhow, should you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share.

I understand this is off subject nevertheless I just needed to ask.
Thank you!

Magnificent web site. Plenty of helpful information here.
I’m sending it to a few buddies ans also sharing in delicious.
And obviously, thank you in your sweat!

Thanks to my father who stated to me about this web site, this webpage is in fact remarkable.

Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?

My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup.
Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

Unquestionably imagine that that you said. Your favorite
justification seemed to be on the web the simplest thing
to have in mind of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while folks consider worries that they just don’t realize
about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects ,
other people could take a signal. Will likely be
back to get more. Thank you

I think that what you posted was actually very reasonable.

But, consider this, suppose you were tto write a awesome
title? I ain’t saying your content is not good, but supose
you added a title to possibly grab a person’s attention? I mean bopnnaroo bound – first stop, nashville is
a little plain. You might look at Yahoo’s front page and watfch how theey create
article titles to grab viewers to click. You might add a video or
a ppic oor two to grab readers interested about what you’ve written. Just
my opinion, it ccould make your website a little bit more interesting.

5m renovations that Moss is planning includes installing a gym and Moroccan steam room
under the house. As people grow up they begin to pass through adolescence.
Especially in my line of work, you here a ton of
mortgage and real estate professionals always talking about how they can’t do this or
that anymore; they waste all their time thinking
about how all the change in the industry has made it ‘hard’.

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
