Yesterday it hit me that I have only six more weeks left in Nashville. I thought I had seven weeks left, which felt more like two months; but according to the calendar, I have only six weeks before I move away from my beloved city. Dang that calendar!
I have a ton to do in the next six weeks—transition out of my job, move out of my apartment, send off my visa request, and spend as much time as possible with my friends. But today I found myself thinking about what I am going to miss most about my city. Here’s a short list, not listed in any order of preference; but you can probably figure out which ones are the most important to me:
• coffee at Fido’s
• walks at Centennial Park
• symphony concerts
• Shakespeare in the Park
• the Nashville Opera
• my church
• Gigi Cupcakes
• Sweet Cece’s
• brunch at Bread and Company
• spring/fall hikes at Radnor Lake
• walks downtown
• Calypso Café
• Ann Taylor
• brunch at le Peep
• walks around my neighborhood
• mojitos at Rumba’s on summer nights
• tennis at the park
• seeing the skyline at night from the north side
Nashville has been my home for more than twelve years. I will truly miss this place.

What a great list of things near and dear to your heart. Just wait until you can say the same of your new home in South Africa. God already knows what will be on that list–now for the fun part: you getting to find out!! 🙂
Thanks, Katy. I love this perspective. What a great way of looking at my new life. Hum, it will be fun to find out what’s on my list!
can’t believe departure day’s coming up so soon — we have to get together before you go, friend!
I would love that, J. Lee. Perhaps we could have another lunch at Cafe Bonnet.
Six weeks! Holy cow! How exciting! Keeping you in my prayers!
