Good morning! First, thanks to you all for the kind comments on my half marathon fail post yesterday I feel so much better! (Mentally and physically — yay). Good enough to go for a run this morning. I might have had a little pace point to prove to myself. It’s weirdly cool in Nashville right now, but nice nonetheless. I did a loop around East Nashville and through Shelby Park.
Fun fact: Shelby Park was like 50% responsible for Anthony and I’s decision to settle on the east side of town (sort of like the Mt. Vernon trail and Rock Creek Park were big reasons for choosing Arlington and Adams Morgan when we lived in DC!). I love Nashville, but I don’t think the west side of this city has that much in terms of parks and trails. Unless, of course, you can afford to live in Belle Meade Anyways — speaking of luxurious living… Anthony and I took a walk the other night and found this beautiful collection of street furniture. Love my neighborhood.Our destination: Lizzie’s house! She and her boyfriend had us over for a home-based happy hour. Give me a table full of snacks and drinks and I am a happy lady. Especially if the drinks are double-strong margaritas.Sometimes we eat actual meals, too. On the menu lately: grilled everything. Grilling = less time, fewer dishes. Win-win!I marinated some chicken in a lemon-garlic goodness, and then had Anthony char it up real nice on the barby. He’s Australian, so barbecue skills are embedded in his DNA.
On the side: a double-baked sweet potato and simple salad. Dinner, done!And this post is done, too. Time to get this day started!
