Hi.

We'd love to hear from you!

Ep. 77 - Welcome to Nashville with The Nashville Mom!

Ep. 77 - Welcome to Nashville with The Nashville Mom!

Y’ALL. This episode is awesome!! And that greeting seems super appropriate because today we are talking about NASHVILLE!!!! Our home! We have people ask us constantly for ideas of what to do in Nashville, and a few listeners recently as well, so we made this episode happen! And we had the help of “The Nashville Mom,” Dawn Burns. You can find Dawn on her website, instagram, and podcast, The Nash Chat (we mentioned her podcast guest, Amber Sandberg, a travel agent who would love to help you plan a vacation!). She knows and blogs about all the things to know about and do in Nashville and we were thrilled to have her on!

Dawn mentioned she took over The Nashville Mom blog from Lindsey McPherson. Lindsey has a great new business, Sitting Made Simple Nashville!

So, we talked about a TON of places here in Nashville. We keep it fairly organized in the podcast, but are going to list all the things we mentioned (with links to their websites!) in the order we discussed them here! Here goes!!!
