Fishing for Paradise

Even though I am undeniably a city girl, I adore visits to the country. The great thing about Nashville, Tennessee is that you find a beautiful and happy medium for both sides of your personality. We met my in-laws just outside of Nashville at a lovely private lake. My kids have been wanting to fish (to the point of tears, for some very odd reason) for quite some time. Thank God they both caught something! Sadly, I did not. I think the fish knew I wasn't keen to bait my own hook. I think I heard one say "city girl, glug, glug." It was an absolutely idyllic day, as you can see.

 Gone Fishin'

Gone Fishin'

As much as we possibly can, we city folk need to wander off the beaten path, let the sun beat down on our faces, hear the sloppy pat of water on the shore and spend time with loved ones, without an agenda.

Get out there, practice the art of wonder, and wander.

Happy Friday!
