"Dirty" South


"Dirty" South

The beauty of having long distance friendships is getting to visit those friends in awesome places! Evan and I planned a tour of the South which included visiting a handful of our closest friends who all happen to live in neighboring states. How awesome is that?!

Our tour looked like this: 

Lexington, Kentucky/ Sunday-Wednesday

Nashville, Tennessee/ Wednesday-Friday

Marietta, Georgia/ Friday-Sunday

If there is one thing I am good at, its planning. More so, creating itineraries that really milk every last detail, (I do it for a living.) Seven days sounds long, but when you are crossing three states you really need people who know the best things to do. 

My friends are hip, cultured and love all the same things that Evan and I do. Between beautiful yoga classes, breweries, bourbon trails, farm to table food, live music, boot shopping, historical sites, stunning views and A WEDDING, we were set.

I could not have asked for a better trip. I kept saying throughout my time there, "I am so fortunate to be traveling right now, and even luckier that my friends are with me."
