    i live in nashville & can give you some lovely places to check out!! for food, burger up, frothy monkey coffeehouse, pancake pantry, satco (san antonio taco company), the perch and whole foods are some of the best places to go. then there are a bunch of great vintage clothing stores scattered around- local honey & savant vintage are two of my favorites! then there’s grimey’s music store- the best new/used cd & vinyl store in nashville, belcourt theatre- they show indie & old films, and the list goes on and on.

    i hope you will check out some of those places & enjoy your stay here! 🙂

    I visited Sweden over Christmas and we did both Stockholm and Gothenburg. In Stockholm you need to head over to Gamla Stan, the “old” island of Stockholm. It has beautiful cobbled paths, and the Swedish royal family’s house type-thing (except they don’t officially reside there). There are so many beautiful places around Stockholm as well – it’s a good city meets nature type of place! Enjoy 🙂

    Hej hej! I just spent six months in Sweden doing study abroad! Stockholm is an AMAZING city, and every part of it is gorgeous. You have to see Södermalm, it’s a creative island that has all sorts of fun shops and areas. And of course you have to do “fika”, a past time everyone does where you go out for coffee and a pastry (kannelbulle!) and just sit and chat for hours on end. I’m in love with Sweden and ‘m so sad I’ll just miss your workshop there!!!

    New Zealand next okay?! x

    Fia says:

    Yay! Finally Stockholm! I’m so happy right now. You will love it here!

    I would love to be your assistant while in Stockholm, I’ll e-mail you!

    I’m just so excited you are finally coming to our gorgeous city Stockholm! We’re sooo happy to have you too. You’re going to absolutely love it here. If you want a little inspiration until you get here in September, here is a Stockholm Guide I wrote for which just published online yesterday. xoxo Kristina

    Oh so jealous, always wanted to visit Nashville. Also, I love that gif, haha x

    Kristin says:

    Bri, you will LOVE Nashville! I adore this city. I live in East Nashville, so I have to give some of my local favorites a shout-out.

    Food: Marche (killer brunch), The Silly Goose, Lockeland Table, Rosepepper Cantina, Cafe Fundamental

    Drinks: 308, Holland House, Rumours East

    Shopping: Oldmadegood (OMG), Wonders on Woodland, Hey Rooster General Store, Fond Object

    My favorite spot in Nashville for vintage clothing is Local Honey on Belmont Blvd.

    If you want to have a downtown Honky Tonk experience, go to Robert’s Western World!

    If you are still looking for a work space, Marathon Village….they may have a space you can use. It’s a really cool old industrial center right on the edge of downtown.

    Have so much fun! So wish I could join! I’m trying to decide whether I can convince my boss this would be great training for my job 🙂
