So to recap, Zach and I did a songwriting road trip last week so Zach could work on his next album.
The week started out in Greenville, SC were Zach wrote with Tara Leigh Cobble. You might remember that name since I mentioned her a few weeks back in my post titled "This is my story and a page has been turned". Anyways, TLC would totally win the senior superlative (do they still give those out in high school?!) for "best all around." She's an author, speaker, musician, songwriter, storyteller, and has one heck of a fascinating journey with Jesus. This was my first time in Greenville and I would have to say it took me by surprise.
We didn't have a lot of time here, but TLC recommended a local coffee shop downtown so we went and got lattes. Yes, this was my first coffee beverage in over 7 weeks and I tried out soy milk. It was divine.
Sadly, the FAID leaves me chained to... chains really. :) You know, chain restaurants that are located at convenient interstate exits and serve the same, mass-produced food at each location. These places are usually my nemesis and naturally places I avoid because they are so hideously inferior to "local restaurants". Nowadays though, I long for a Ruby Tuesday, Outback, Bonefish (that one I actually like), or Longhorn just so I can eat drama free!
Our time here was short, but luckily we did have time to grab a yummy dinner at Seasons 52 with my friend Tanya.
Being at Seasons 52- Buckhead reminded me how much I love this city, or rather, being spoiled by the conveniences of urban Atlanta life. Since the Charlotte WholeFoods isn't open yet, I took this opportunity to pilfer the GIANT Buckhead WholeFoods. Gosh this place is one of a kind. Whitney Wood Bailey, can I get an amen? :) Anywho, I was pleasantly surprised to find this scrumptious gluten-free, dairy-free treat and devoured these coconut drops!
After Atlanta and a quick trip to Canton for Zach to meet with a music producer, we headed to Nashville. Naturally, this included trips to all the local guitar stores. :)
Also in Nashville I got a little break from the FAID. Trying to find somewhere to eat that met all my dietary restrictions was pretty much impossible. I finally gave up trying and stuck with just gluten and dairy free options. This allowed us to go to one of our favorite spots, PM, for some sushi!
Here's Z sitting in the downtown Franklin 'Bucks.
It was so great to spend some quality time with our girl though. She comes to Charlotte in 2 weeks!
