Do you ever feel like you have those weekends that are so packed of life and activities, you can hardly believe it lasted only 48 hours? That’s what my whole month is shaping up to look like, and I could not be happier. From a quick Ohio getaway, to a surprise visit from a college friend, the first week of June is proving to be setting a great tone for the summer!

I popped up to Cincinnati for a quick getaway to hide away from the city for a few days to try to get some work done, and had a great few days with my family. Between soccer scrimmages, softball practices, and afternoon massages, we always pack a ton in. In the midst of finding a new place in Nashville, I had a panic attack and looked at places in Cincinnati out of frustration, and every time I visit, I think more and more about moving there.

That trip was supposed to be much longer, but last Monday, one of my best friends from college texted me to let me know she was coming to Nashville to surprise someone at their bachelorette party! I haven’t seen her since graduation in 2011, so I came back to town early to see her. I picked her up from the airport and we spent the day together, including a mini-reunion with a bunch of other college friends as well for a night of margaritas and karaoke!

Friday night, I managed to score tickets for the Brantley Gilbert and Lynyrd Skynyrd taping of Crossroads for CMT. I’m not a huge fan of either artist, but it was a really great time, and I hope to make it to even more of these special events in the future. Every time I consider leaving Nashville, these opportunities come up that I would never get to have in another city, and it makes it so hard to consider leaving.

Saturday night I worked a double show, and relaxed after such a busy week in my great new BANGS Shoes with this view of the city. Summer is so good to me.

Finally, I spent Sunday afternoon poolside at one of the greatest Nashille hangs, Pinewood Social, for cocktails before my friend left for the airport again. There is just something about umbrella drinks and retro decor that makes me feel home.

How was your weekend?

I was provided a complimentary product for review from Bangs Shoes, but all opinions are my own.
