Last summer, we moved just a few minutes away but into a new neighborhood outside downtown Nashville. It has been a full fledged love affair with Sylvan Park ever since. I’ve been a lifelong car addict, having to jump into the car to get just about anywhere (mostly by necessity). But not here. Not in good ol’ Sylvan Park. Within a 10 minute walk, I can get some hot chicken from Hattie B’s or tacos from The Local Taco, fresh produce from at the farmer’s market or The Produce Place, and donuts from the Vegan Vee. I can take a jog on the Greenway or check out a good book at the library. I can head on over to a friend’s house for a hang out if needed. Sigh. This place is lovely.
This week, we had one of those mornings in our neighborhood that was just so fun & simple. It is a morning I know I’ll think about when I’m shuffling kids to and from school, longing for the days we could pick how we’d spend them. We took a trip to Richland Park, hit up the library then snacked on some donuts. Sylvan Park, sweet treats & sweet moments. Perfection.
