It was decided when I came home from our honeymoon that Nanny was moving down here. I was so surprised because Nashville is where our family's heritage is and where she has always been. She said she was ready to be closer to us, so she was very excited. I was able to come to Nashville a little earlier than the rest of my family that came to move her, so Nanny and I took some time to say her goodbye's to her hometown. Of course, she will be back, but she wanted to show me some places that she loves and I was very excited. Although I have never lived in Nashville, my mom and dad and my whole family is from there...so it's home for me too in a sense. We went to eat lunch at the Picnic Cafe, which was delicious, and we went to some of her favorite stores, Hot Pink and The Pear Tree Shop (I think that's the name). They were so cute and fun! Then we went to look at the "castles" as my Uncle Joe calls them. There are some massive houses out in Nashville that are beyond anything I have ever seen. They are pretty, but excessive to me. I would much rather live in one of the older homes in the area (which are probably very expensive too since they have been added onto through the years).
We also drove down Tyne Blvd. where Nanny grew up. She told me stories of visiting her friends and showed me all of their homes (which have been added onto, but they look the same pretty much according to Nanny). She told me stories of riding her bike down the hill all the way to Granny White Pike (such a cute street name). We drove up in the driveway of her childhood home and I took a few pictures. If I am ever a millionare, I am going to buy that house. It is so pretty and has such a heritage. I just love my Nanny so much.
