Moving, Mom and Mother's Day

It's been exactly one week since we left Philadelphia and already Nashville feels like home. I have to take a minute to be mushy and gushy and talk about how this would not have been possible without my mom. She flew up to Philly on Wednesday night and drove down with me on Thursday. 13 hours in the car seemed to fly by because we had so much fun! She stayed through the weekend to help set up everything in the new place and she made the transition such an easy one for all involved. So Mom, if you're reading this, thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I was super excited to see that the new place has low flow toilets and an energy conscious washer and dryer. On Saturday, I changed all the lightbulbs to CFLs and picked up a few plants for the entryway and the porch. The new place is getting eco-fied one step at a time!

Sunday afternoon, Mom and I headed to Mother's Day brunch at the Loews Vanderbilt. If you ever get the chance to have Sunday brunch in their restaurant, I highly recommend it. The food and the service are both A++!

Finally, in other news, if you have a prayer list or even if you don't, please keep my cousin's precious little angel in your thoughts. Emma Kate will be having heart surgery soon in Boston. Read more here.

Precious Daughter,
There is nothing I would rather have done last week than help you make Nashville your home. Thank you for the wonderful Mother's Day brunch. Wasn't it delightful?! Perhaps we should make it a tradition!
