The Nashville Diaries

When in doubt, just make the move

It’s strange to think that a year ago this week, I was moving to New York City. Oh, did we not talk about that? Yeah- I forgot- I kept that pretty secret. Mostly because I didn’t know if it would be a permanent move or not… And I didn’t want to make a big fuss READ MORE
