Our first day in Nashville was so much fun!   We are staying at the Omni in Downtown Nashville.  The Omni is attached to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and has so much to explore from shops to restaurants to a rooftop pool and spa!  We could spend the whole trip in the hotel and have a great time!  After arriving at the hotel, we decided to grab a quick bite to eat and then we went out to explore Nashville's up and coming neighborhood, The Gulch.  We found some cute shops and stopped for a glass of wine and some sweet tea to cool us off later in the afternoon.  We had a fabulous dinner at Josephine, which is located in the 12 South neighborhood surrounded by boutique shopping and restaurants.

I had a beet salad and Sarah had quesadillas at the hotel before we headed out to explore the city!

The name of this shop is Two Old Hippies!  It was full of great clothes, funky jewelry and of course, a restored VW Van!

The menu at Josephine has something for everyone and they have a small but excellent wine list!  I had two small plates that were served in beautiful handmade bowls.


One of the most delicious beet salads I've ever had (are you beginning to see a pattern here?)!
