I’ve grown to enjoy some of the simpler things in life, one of my favorites being a good bakery. There is something so comforting about a bakery. The smell of of fresh bread baking, the deliciously decadent pastries, and the calming coffee aromas. I could sit in a bakery and work all day or brunch all weekend.
One of my favorite places in Nashville to visit is Marché Artisan Foods. They have breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner and are located in East Nashville. Everything I’ve ever ordered there has been so delicious, I really don’t think anything on the menu is bad! There is just something about the atmosphere that makes me forget about the world and enjoy my time and company there. But at the same time, also reminds me of home. When I lived in Virginia I used to go downtown to brunch at Bread Furst Bakery with my friends and family. Bread Furst is located in Van Ness, a great location right in the heart of Northwest DC. One of my good friends actually just moved into the Park Van Ness apartments and has become a regular at Bread Furst. She is always taunting me with pictures of her baked goods, it’s cruel!
Now that it’s warm out all I want to do is spend time outside. I’ve loved the adventure of moving to Nashville and starting my life here. But there are times when I miss things about living in the DC area –especially sitting outside brunching with my friends on a beautiful day! I can’t wait to visit my friend in her sweet new apartment and catch up over a tasty brunch. Yet my envy over her pastry pics has launched a new desire, more-so a mission, for my summer. Instead of getting jealous over my friend’s new routine now that she has moved to Park Van Ness, I’m going to take charge and explore Nashville this summer. Now I know I live here but there are so many things to do and places to see, it never gets old. And on top of that, I now have a beautiful little baby to introduce to all the cool places in the city we call home! I’m looking forward to starting this new summer adventure. I’ll let you know how it goes!!
