we were in nashville this past weekend for my brother's 21st. y'all, i adore nashville. i spent 4 years there for school, but still miss it all the time. there is a fresh, young, creative spirit that is so alive in nashville. its always such a joy to go back to all my favorite spots & see friends who are still there. however this weekend we had a lot of fun trying new places. nashville is ever expanding & growing; i feel like every time i go back there are numerous brand new great things to see & try. while there this weekend, i fell in love with Barista Parlor specifically their new space in The Gulch called The Golden Sound. the place itself is fabulous looking & the coffee is fabulous... big wood tables, gourmet coffee, close friends + family, & my favorite city. i was in heaven.
