You didn't think I had forgotten about sharing the rest of your trip to Music City? Truth be told, I just need a little break and wanted to show you more of what's been happening around here lately. However, I'm happy to be back and sharing more of our trip and a particularly favorite day we had while around Nashville. Like any good tourist, we couldn't pass up the chance to check out the world famous Loveless Cafe -- so on a dreary and rainy day, we headed up and down a very windy road (we accidentally took the wrong route through the country) and made our way to Loveless for breakfast.
There was a bit of wait when we pulled up, so we put our name down and headed toward the gift shop for a little perusing while we waited. We ended up picking up a couple of cheesy souvenirs (my favorite kind!), and then made our way to the cafe when our buzzer starting ringing.
The biscuits are a staple at Loveless, of course, so we shared a batch pre-breakfast, and then Scott had a biscuit sampler for his meal. The food was true Southern style and the atmosphere was fun -- now we can say we've been to the Loveless Cafe, hot biscuits and all.
After finishing up at Loveless, we made the drive out to Franklin, TN -- a charming town not that far outside of Nashville that everyone had told us to visit. Franklin had been on our radar for many years now, and after having friends live out there and talk about all of the charming shops and quaint coffee shops, Scott and I knew we needed to venture outside of the big city and give Franklin a visit. After parking our car and taking a little stroll down their darling main street, Scott snapped the above photo of me while we we're poking around their local Anthropologie -- it turned out to be one of my favorite photos from our whole trip.
And here's the view I was taking in!
We heard great things about Gray's, but since were both still stuffed from Loveless we decided to pass this time -- it'll definitely be on our list for next time, though! :)
White's Mercantile was one of our favorite stops while on 12 South, so we were excited to visit their new location in Franklin -- which was equally beautiful! I swear I could have taken the whole store home with me.
After finishing up at White's, we wandered around downtown Franklin a little more, stopped in at a few more shops and picked up some hot coffees at Frothy Monkey.
We made one more stop during our time in Franklin, but I'll save that for another post! I'm already itching for another getaway -- good thing I'm headed to San Francisco this weekend! It may be for a work trip, but I can't wait to show you all what I'll be up to on Instagram (and Snapchat -- @chelseabirdd). Be back soon, friends!
