Pumpkin Patch

What a year a difference makes…about this time last year we were galavanting around the pumpkin patches of the Pacific Northwest. Now, just one (short) year later how so many things have changed.

On a whim one day our way home from preschool I decided we would stop by this local pumpkin patch I’d seen signs for in passing. We got there right as they opened, so the VIP parking was flowing. We walked through the pre-picked pumpkins to unveil the cutest little farm. It was so dang cute y’all! A little hidden gem, tucked away down a sweet country road *emoji heart eyes. This place was a perfect spot for kids B’s age to run, see, do! There were farm animals to feed, corn mazes to explore, and tractor trains to ride.

We’ve had a lot of luck lately with our impromptu adventures in our new home of middle Tennessee…I can’t wait to see what the holidays will continue to bring!

Cheekwood Gardens

Mom and Dad finally made it! 🙌🏼 But first, let me back it up a bit. Back in April when Geoff and I had just moved to middle Tennessee, mom and dad had a flight out of Jax to come see us. Ya see, they’re the type of parents that will always be parents – there for you – and I’m so grateful for that part of their hearts. They’ve always done what they could, when they could, and they’ve always tried to help each of us in (all) our moves…this time was no different. Well, in theory, but Mother Nature had a different plan. Long story short, there was a terrible wave of storms that came through the South, and Atlanta being the hub of Delta all.flights.were…screwed. 😅 So, after HOURS of sitting in the Jax airport, they finally decided to call it and make a trip out another weekend.

THEY MADE IT! We hung out, stay low key, tour the Cheekwood Gardens, ate at Prince’s Hot Chicken (mmm, yes please!), showed them our new church home, and played games. It was the perfect blend of touring and quality time together. Although Cheekwood was a bit…underwhelming (sorry locals, I know I may be the minority in that one), I’m willing to give it another try when the beauty of the season changes arrive. 😄🌻🍁 Until then, I still enjoyed my time with my parents and my lil fam of three. 💜

Thank you mom and dad for always going out of your way to be there, do the thing, go the extra mile. We love you and enjoyed our time!

Until next time! ❤️

John S Pedestrian Bridge

My sister and her family came to visit us not too long ago and it felt sooo nice to host them in our new home. Y’all know I’m #emo on so many things and having extra time with my sis and her fam was nothing short of it. It was heart-warming to see the cousins playing with each other, laughing, and even a little squabbling – or the equivalent to that between a 3 and 4 year old. 😉

One day we all met up with my bro-in-laws family (who also live here) and chowed down at Hattie B’s. #yesplease 🔥🍽 After lunch the rest of the gang went to explore the zoo, while we chose to go the more ‘non committal before nap time’ route and drove to the John S Pedestrian bridge to walk a bit before we needed to head home.

I love some of these moments captured so much The connection B has with each of us feels so special and unique, and I love freezing time to remember these snapshots forever.❤️

Lucky Ladd Farm

What’s better than tractors, excavators, dump trucks, and a whole lot of dirt? Well, to B I can tell ya not much! Right after we moved to middle Tennessee my boys and I went to this (kinda huge) farm not too far from us. It’s just taken me a while to share it with y’all!

Getting caught up on all we’ve done this summer has been quite the photo editing and writing challenge! Moving back to the South and closer to our friends and family comes with more weekend trips and visits, but that also means I’M TOTALLY BEHIND ON BLOGGING! Not to mention, I’ve been working on a few side projects for a while now and those have taken mental priority. (Sorry LtL)🙈 I’ll soon be sharing my exciting business ventures here with y’all, but until then let’s have fun exploring our new home in TN!

This place Lucky Ladd Farm, was adorable and basically mecca for Brooks. The kids were able to explore a number of different farm and construction vehicles temporarily donated to this farm just for this event. And when there’s not a special event going on, there’s a whole other part with animals to pet, a vegetable garden to pick through, and rides to ride! I think I might’ve had just about as much fun as B…🤷🏼‍♀️

Just look at these pics…can you just feel his excitement (and concentration) surrounded by so many things he loves! Oh and these were all taken with my iPhone 🔋 My camera battery died basically as soon as we got there – rookie move on my part not checking the battery before we left!

Anyway, enjoy! 😄

I can’t wait to explore more with B and capture new memories here in Tennessee. Thanks for reading y’all!
