Every so often I’ll catch a spontaneous ‘bug’ and want to go off somewhere with B like we used to do in the PNW. I loved our time away together and the memories we’d create. When I can I’ll do some research and find a kid-friendly destination within a two hour driving radius. Instagram is usually my go-to when searching for local fun spots. If you just search through some hashtags and adventuring photographer’s feeds you’re bound to stumble across a number of interests! When it comes to hiking, I’ll usually take the next step in my research reconnaissance and google the trail or park and see what other hikers are saying about the conditions of the trails, difficulty, and whether or not it’s kid friendly. Our most recent kid friendly hike was to the Fall Creak Falls State Park in the upper Cane Creek Gorge. Continue reading “Family Friendly Nashville: Fall Creek Falls State Park”
You know what’s great about snow days? Aside from the obvious wintery wonderland that’s cast on everything around you? Getting caught up on your blog and doing some well-overdue spring cleaning on the site! You may have noticed a few new aesthetics and menu options here on LtL. Apparently blogs are just like people – they need some TLC, a little sprucing up and evolve over time (when you put the work in). 😉 So for 2018 I’ve given her a few changes and additions that will hopefully be beneficial in the new year and you’ll find helpful in navigating the site! While I talk about life since I’ve blogged last I also wanted to share a sweet memory with the family. Christmas is the best time of year and bringing Brooks into the traditions of its greatness will forever be my goal in life! This past Christmas we went on a family friendly North Pole Express train ride in Nashville and he loved it! Continue reading “Family Friendly Nashville: North Pole Express Train Ride”
Closing out the 2017 year fire side with the fam and watching Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve…and glass of bubbles in hand. Oh how times have changed. While tonight may be at a slower pace than years before, this year has been anything but. In the last 12 months the Cott crew has had a few changes, addresses, and jobs. As the saying goes, for every ending there is a beginning and this year has been a year of new beginnings.
Here are LtL’s Top 3 posts according to you, the reader, followed by my Top 3 of 2017: Continue reading “A Year in Review: 2017”
From a busy summer to a busy fall, The Cott house has been on a roll y’all!! We’ve had so many fun visitors and outings I feel like I haven’t even had a chance to get into a real swing of blogging since moving to TN. So, while B naps I have Elf (SANTA!!) in the background and the fire lit so I can sit and get caught up on life here in middle Tennessee. Geoff jokes that I like to celebrate a birthday month…don’t be ridiculous. 😉 It’s no more than a few weeks – tops. But there’s always next year! #goals This year on my birthday I channeled my PNW-self and set out on an impromptu birthday day trip to Chattanooga with my partner in crime. I’d heard so much about the charming city of Chattanooga so off we went! Continue reading “Family Friendly Nashville: Day Trip to Chattanooga”
