Nashville....the End of Crazy April Travels

Sunday morning I said goodbye again to LA and headed to Nashville. After so much traveling, I almost wanted to head home, and I was definitely thinking that I’m crazy for going for 36 hours to see a concert and grab a bite at a certain restaurant, right?

Eh, my life is awesome. Nashville is so great and was absolutely worth this quick trip. I arrived in the afternoon and SammiTerp picked me up. Hooray! She’s always up for a concert. We met just over 10 years ago via a message board online for one of our favorite bands, and we became friends. We’ve had lots of concert outings and roadtrips, and I’m glad we’re still friends.

We kept the afternoon low key with the cat and had a nap. Then it was back to Rolf and Daughters for dinner. You bet I was gonna eat there again. I still dream about the pork ragout sauce I ate last August, and I couldn't wait to devour it again. Sam lives only a couple blocks, so we had a nice walk over. Deliciousness ahead!

We tried the summer veggie…

Musical Monday - Lord Huron

These guys are here tonight and they're dreamy. Excited to see them again.

Latest Obsession - Chocolate!

Meghan and I decided we had to meet up and do a chocolate tasting at Taste sometime in April before she was off on a grad school trip then her summer internship in Texas. We found a Friday that worked and made reservations.

The interior is just beautiful. All the details and displays and the floor come together so well. 
We arrived just before the stating time and grabbed a seat. We went for the romantic corner table, ha!
We'd be tasting 9 fine chocolates over the next couple hours. We each had a sheet to write notes, then rank from 1-5. We took our time with each piece, first rubbing it vigorously to melt a layer and release the aroma. We spent a good amount of time just smelling. As our chocolate guide said, if you don't have chocolate on the end of your nose at the end, you're doing it wrong. Then we placed the bit in our mouth and let it melt. Finally, a few chews.

At first it was a bit difficult to pick up some of the flavors, but I got better at the end. We tried c…

Musical Monday - Sego

Spencer. Thomas. Sego.

Go grab their EP and have a good time.

Easter! Spring! General Conference!

Spring is here!

I put this beautiful card in the mail to a friend I haven't seen in awhile. I hope this brightens her day.

After a workout, a girl  needs some pie and cider. It was open mic poetry night. I went with Marcello to listen, not read

One of the best things about living in Utah, especially around General Conference time, is the influx of visitors. I got an email on Thursday from Abraham, who was flying into town for a quick visit. I haven't seen him in a few years since he's been jetting around the world, but I was able to pick him up at the airport and have a quick dinner with him. One of my favorite people on the planet.

The next day I got to see Yuhi and her cute little family. There were in town for a mission reunion and we had lunch on Friday. They've recently moved from NYC to Texas, so it's been an adjustment! The girls are adorable and mostly speak Japanese.

Hallie had a little Easter egg hunt it seems. Taylor sent these to the family.

And she a…
