Just a Little Bit of Nashville

It had been a few years 
since I've been to downtown Nashville.

New restaurants are popping up everywhere.

The traffic was moving along 
and most of the photos of the city are a blur.

With music on every corner, there's no denying that
Nashville is the Music Capital of the World!

We took a ride UNDER the new convention center. 

The city is being restored.

Troy works for the Tennessee
Department of Education.  He took us to
his office on the 18th floor!  (YIKES!)
The view was spectacular. 

The sunset was even more magnificent.

Nashville attracts fans of
The Vols, Predators, Titans, and Sounds.

The Titans play in the arena behind this building.

This is a closer view of The Capital from the 18th floor.

Flip this over:)  This was painted by a TN high school student.
Troy's job with the education department
is to educate, prepare and assist students in the college process.
Now every student can get a FREE education
at any community college in the state.

Of course, our baby girl was the center of attention.

She was such an angel.

Her daddy is goo-goo about her.

God has promised her "a hope and a future."

My baby girl is getting some practice. 
Our little girls are going to be buddies.

We missed Grandy.
Nashville gets all of our extra money
so we have to space it out a bit.
I've made 4 trips to Nashville in the past two months. 

Cora Joy was the main attraction of the weekend.
Don't these blue eyes melt your heart and
aren't those sweet lips kissable?

I miss them already.



  1. I think Grandma is goo-goo for Cora too. LOL. Who wouldn't be. She is a cutie pie. I have not been to Nashville in 25 years. So there would be plenty of changes to me. Blessings for a fun filled weekend,. xoxo,Susie

  2. Oh Bonnie ~ melt my heart. What wonderful photos. What sweet cheeks and lips.

    The cake is so beautiful. How special.

    Isn't being grandma the best!

  18. I love Nashville and almost all parts of Tennessee. Always had a desire to live there one day, but probably won't be happening since nobody would come see me. LOL!
