Keeping things simple in a not so simple world

greetings from Nashville

Hello Readers!

Yes, as you can tell from the title of this post, we are in Nashville – for two weeks!  I love exploring a new city and Nashville has certainly not disappointed.

The kids and I have had several adventures over the last week.  Maybe when they are older they would enjoy things like the Country Music Hall Fame, but right now, they are focused on parks and playgrounds and pools.  We had a bit of fun at the Nashville Zoo yesterday and plan to head to the Adventure Science Center and Bicentennial Park over the next week, amongst other things.

What I did not realize about Nashville, is that it is a foodie town!  Great restaurants, of all different types and often clumped together so if you stay in one area, you can try many without having to drive all over the city.

Some favorites!

1.  Best Coffee (and I’m not a coffee drinker!) at Hot & Cold.  They also have great ice cream and las paletas (popsicles).  I am also very much impressed with their variety of teas and the different blends they offer.

2.  Great pizza!  New York style, thin crust pizza, Pizza Perfect is great!  An amazing blend of spices in the sauce with just the right amount of cheese.  While not close to my favorite pizza, Fricano’s in Michigan, it is truly good.  (Fricano’s stands alone.  It is like no other pizza in the world!)

3.  Best Thai I have had in a very long time at The Smiling Elephant.  And they do their best to make it healthy.  (It is also great that it is reasonably priced!)
