We received a text message from one of Benjamin’s brothers that they would be in Nashville with their new daughter we hadn’t met. Benjamin is the oldest of four boys in the family and they are all spread out living their lives across the country. One of Benjamin’s brothers lives in Nashville so we decided if everyone was going, we should too! We have the flight miles and it’s been a long time since I’ve been to Nashville.
To get four boys and their wives and kids together isn’t easy when we’re spread around the country in IL, TX, AZ and TN. My mother and father-in-law booked a cute eclectic home in Nashville for us, brought coffee, snacks, and we bought the Decoy wine.
Elevate your occasion with Decoy – we brought a bottle as a gift to a graduation party recently. Find where to pick up Decoy or where a restaurant serves Decoy wine here. Or you can always come over to our house or wherever we are, we’ll have it on hand.
I love brick homes, wood porches, and lush green foliage so I was able to truly admire the homes in Nashville. We also live in a brick home so it might not be a surprise I love stone front cottages or in some cases, very large scale homes with brick character.
We recently saw Benjamin’s parents a few months ago when they stayed with us for this past spring, right after we completed our home expansion. We hadn’t seen his brothers for almost two years! It just seems crazy how hard it is to get together but then you have to just make it a priority and make plans and hope everyone can make it work.
I know I’m not alone when I say I’m so glad it did. I get along with my husband’s family, sister-in-laws as well, so effortlessly. I feel so blessed to be able to say that.
Nashville is a fun spot, too – and apparently a popular spot for bachelorette parties.
Time always flies by – we explored some spots together but the memories that stick out are always the conversions. Just catching up, eating local BBQ on the porch, sharing photos, taking them, just the slower moments of just being is bonding. Nashville sure made a beautiful backdrop for those memories.
Summer starts here with Decoy – serve up a bottle at your next gathering and make those summer memories. I hope you are having a wonderful start to your summer.
