I have a busy, busy, busy fall ahead of me! I will be traveling to different states (and timezones) on a pretty regular basis and honestly I am so excited. In my old job at this company, I traveled all the time and loved it. When I got my last job in Seattle and moved out here, my job no longer involved any form of travel. I didn’t realize how much I was going to miss the hustle and bustle of a busy travel life. Now that I am back with my old company and in a new job, I am going to be traveling more again (yay!). Beyond that, I now have a certified travel buddy and we both like exploring new places! So here is what my travel schedule is looking like for the rest of the year! If you have any suggestions on place to eat, things to see or things to do, leave a comment down below!
Memphis. The sweet city that taught me more than I could ever imagine. The city that challenged me and pushed me. The city that tested me and forced me to grow. The city that gave me friends that will stand next to me at my wedding, be aunties to my kids and are always there when I need them. The city that showed me a different way of life and forced me to leave my comfort zone. To you Memphis, I say thank you.
So I realized that I hardly ever post about Memphis, which is pretty ironic because I live here. So I decided I need to start sharing some of my Memphis favorites with you beautiful people. This week we are talking about some of my favorite restaurants, because one of the things I love about Memphis is all of the great places to eat. Now these are all of the places I love to go if I want a good hearty meal, meaning health food is not on the menu… Or it is, but that so isn’t what you should order.
In a lot of ways, I have Memphis to thank for the woman I am today. While my hometown is hands down the house that built me, Memphis is the town that made me an adult. If you want to force yourself to grow up quick after college, move 2,000+ miles from home. I promise, it’ll do the trick. I have learned a lot since moving here (like how to hang curtains and change a tire on my car) and continue to learn new things every day, but that isn’t the only reason I appreciate the city of Memphis as much as I do. Memphis has completely inspired my love for travel and exploring new places. I want to share some of those things with you all. Soooo, today I am talking about my favorite touristy things to do in Memphis!
Baseball. America’s pastime. Without a doubt my favorite sport. I should clarify it is my favorite sport to watch, not to play. In all honesty no sport is my favorite to play. My hand-eye coordination is below that of a five-year-old’s, so I am normally more of the sideline cheerleader or team mom than the player. Anyways, I love watching baseball. And with the season just starting, I have been thinking about by favorite team a lot.
