This past weekend was Phil’s birthday so we took a mini vacation to Nashville to celebrate. I had never been to Nashville before and I must say it was one of my favorite trips we’ve taken together. We stayed at a charming cottage in the woods near Franklin. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve already seen some of the pics (check them out here). I can’t even describe how magical the whole trip felt. Have you ever had that feeling that you wanted to escape to a cottage in the woods? Well this surpassed any fantasy I had about that kind of experience. The whimsical, vintage decor blew me away and gave me a whole new appreciation for antiques. We even went antique shopping at the store that the people who decorated the cottage own. We’re already dreaming of purchasing our own little farmhouse and I’m starting my antique collection now.
