I’m a city girl at heart, there is no denying that. I was raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia and I currently live in Nashville, Tennessee. So maybe I’m more of a southern city girl? Nonetheless, I’ll go to great lengths to get a good view of a skyline.
2. Acoustic guitar
There is just something about an acoustic guitar that captures my heart. I like concerts but I love sitting around listening to friends play. Learning to play the guitar is definitely on my bucket list. Something about the beautiful strum of the guitar strings makes everything better.
3. Windows down, Music up
Not many things bring me as much joy as riding around with my windows down and country song blaring. If I’m having a bad day, sometimes all it takes is for me to hop in my car, put on a good song, and just drive around singing my heart out. One of the reasons I hate winder is because I can’t roll my windows down, it’s really quite sad.
I think I could stare at the mountains and never get sick of it. I live in Tennessee so there are plenty of mountains around me. Well, I actually live in Nashville so many of the “mountains” I see are considered hills by natives but they are totally mountains in my city girl eyes. They captivate me and draw me in. They reveal to me the mystery of God’s creation.
5. State Welcome Signs
I take a picture every time I pass one. I’ve lived in 4 states in the past year so you could say I have a problem staying in one place. Each time I pass into a new state, the sign represents all the chances I have to make new memories or to reminisce on the old ones. Whenever I go home and pass the Georgia state sign I’m filled with so much happiness because I am reminded of how much I love where I grew up. I am reminded of all the memories I’ve been allowed to make in these different places when I pass those beautiful state signs.
