Jacob and I finally made it to Virginia, where we will be living for the next 4 months! On our journey here we stopped at Nashville one night and spent a few hours there the next day! I really enjoyed Nashville, and I can't wait to go back for a longer visit, and explore even more! 

The first night we were there we went and ate at Ted's Montana Grill. It was delicious and I love how it is decorated with buffalo (kinda in love with buffalo ever since Yellowstone). I didn't like how buffalo is on the menu, makes me sad!

Then we drove around and saw the beautiful city lights and drove by the Frist Museum and saw these HUGE, beautiful roses with HUGE, cute bugs on them! I loved them so much, so we stopped and took tons of pictures even though it was freezing outside (the real feel was at -6 degrees! Brr!).

The next day we parked and walked around "Broadway" which is full of bars and souvenir shops, where I bought post cards and magnets! We went into the Visitor's Center and these kind gentlemen told us we had to take pictures with the guitars and microphone they had available (so we could trick our friends into thinking we became famous, of course)! Broadway was really fun (and cute!) during the day so I bet it's amazing at night, can't wait to see one day!

Then we drove over to the Centennial Park. On one sign we read it said that the United Nations met there once, which I thought was extremely cool. Then we went over and saw The Parthenon. It is so beautiful. It is the world's only replica of The Parthenon of Greek Culture. The original temple was dedicated to Athena, Greek Goddess of Wisdom. I do recommend everyone going and checking it out if you are ever in Nashville!

Then we drove over the the Grand Ole Opry, but we weren't allowed inside...meh. So we just took pictures outside and daydreamed about what it looked like inside...hopefully one day we will be able to see!

Seeing Nashville for the first time was a great start to our adventure. I can't wait to see more of Virginia and what it has to offer and the surrounding states!!

If you are ever in Fayetteville, I do suggest that you eat at Tiny Tim's Pizza, because it is definitely the best pizza that I've ever had! I also love the environment there, so laid back and chill. And right across the street is Bliss Cupcakes! My favorite is the coconut cupcake they have with cream cheese icing. It's amazing. I could eat one everyday! Jacob likes all the ones that have cream cheese icing, which I agree they are amazing!

Jacob got this necklace for me for Christmas. I was so surprised! He did such a great job, he also got me another necklace from J Crew which is just as beautiful. I'm seriously obsessed with J Crew jewelry...well I guess you could say I'm obsessed with J Crew everything....I even took inspiration from the men and bought the camo shirt I'm wearing from the men's section! I think that's the only way I'll ever wear camo, is if it's from J Crew.

Last night was mine and Jacob's last night in Fayetteville.

Fayetteville is where Jacob and I first made a home together, we moved there together in the summer of 2009, while we were engaged and to be married that October. He took me there so I could attend school at the UofA and major in Apparel Studies, since it was the only school in Arkansas to offer that degree (and it was always my dream to study fashion and he made that dream come true!). 

The first month I was there I became employed by Forever 21, where I met my some of the greatest people in the world and one of my very best friends (Crystal June!). A few years later I became employed at Abercrombie and Fitch and I met even more amazing people and another one of my best friends (Rosalava!). I am so very thankful for everyone I have met and became so close to throughout these years. Ya'll aren't just my friends, ya'll are family and I love you all so much and I love all the amazing memories we have made together. I look forward to making more, and I know that we will remain friends forever no matter where life takes us. (And I would love to end up living in Fayetteville when we get back from Virginia!)

I can't wait to keep ya'll updated on our adventures on the East Coast, I know it is going to be amazing!

"As far as I'm concerned, leopard is a neutral."- Jenna Lyons

I couldn't agree with the quote above more. I love wearing leopard with whatever I want, especially my leopard loafers! Can spice up any outfit if you ask me!
