Weekend in Nashville

This past weekend Alan and I took a quick road-trip to Nashville. We stayed with E+P and it was wonderful catching up with them and seeing the beautiful updates they've made to their home. When we arrived Friday night, we ate a delicious dinner at the house and then went out for dessert! Saturday morning we woke up early and went to breakfast at the...
The line was shorter than normal and our meal was worth every minute of the wait! That afternoon I went to a baby shower for Emily- one of my sorority sisters in college. Oh the memories!
She was beautiful of course and I wish it could've lasted longer! It was so much fun seeing everyone! That night we went out to dinner to one of E+P's favorite places: Blackstone. It's a local grill and brewery which reminded Alan and I alot of out favorite Knoxville brewery: Downtown Grill. Sunday morning we went to E+P's church Grace Community and were blessed by our chance to worship with them. We sang one of my new favorite songs- All I Have is Christ. Such sweet words.

I once was lost in darkest night
Yet thought I knew the way.

The sin that promised joy and life
Had led me to the grave.
I had no hope that You would own
A rebel to Your will.
And if You had not loved me first
I would refuse You still.

But as I ran my hell-bound race
Indifferent to the cost
You looked upon my helpless state
And led me to the cross.
And I beheld God’s love displayed
You suffered in my place
You bore the wrath reserved for me
Now all I know is grace.

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life

Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone
And live so all might see
The strength to follow Your commands
Could never come from me.
Oh Father, use my ransomed life
In any way You choose.
And let my song forever be
My only boast is You.

Dirty Guvs

Last night Alan and I attended the UT Young Alumni event on the rooftop of Pres Pub in market square to see the Dirty Guv'nahs. We had the chance to catch up with a lot of friends we haven't seen since college and the show did not disappoint!
Fantastic view!
