Here are some more photos from our trip to Tennessee a few weeks ago, when we went the Cheekwood Botanical Garden with my family. We went there so my nephew and niece could have fun at a temporary treehouse exhibit, but I was also excited about checking the place out and getting some photos for The Southerly. Drew took a ton of pictures; you can see a lot more and read a bunch of backstory about the actual ’30s mansion right now in our latest Southerly post.
We did manage to take a few tourist photos for this blog. I’ve been lazy about doing weekend/outfit posts lately, especially the weekends we spend around Atlanta. I’ve been pretty boring: just resting a lot, reading a lot, running some, writing some, cooking some. Pretty standard old married person weekends I would have made fun of when I was 25, but now? I like it. It’s reassuring. I’m reading Shelby Foote’s Civil War books (I’m only on book one of three massive volumes; it might just take me years to finish them all) and trying to catch up on all the southern literature I didn’t pay attention to in college. So far Peter Taylor’s short stories are a big favorite.
I’ve also been putting together outfits for a shoot I’m styling for Jamie this weekend. She just got a new studio by the railroad tracks in an old factory building-turned-work space that I used to blog pose at (ha ha), so we’re going to do our first fashion shoot in the new place.
