Small Business Saturday: Support Nashville


After a year that has included tornado damage followed by a worldwide pandemic, we especially want to focus on supporting local businesses this holiday season! We asked our readers to let us know if they have a small business that they would like us to patronize this year, and — as always — y’all delivered!

Small Town Charm


We encourage you to keep some of these in mind as you plan your gifting this year. So many small shops have stepped up when it comes to making things work during this crazy year — lots of options for curbside pickup and even delivery! We even find that their prices are often comparable (or can sometimes beat!) those of a certain big box giant store . . . And the bonus is that when you call, you get to talk to a real live person — a neighbor, a fellow Nashvillian, someone who could be a future friend! Be sure to check social media for specials and promotions as it’s faster and easier for smaller businesses to share that kind of information on Instagram or Facebook. Know of more businesses who could use some local love? Share it with us in the comments!

It’s been a very different year — so let’s do our holiday shopping a little differently too!

When I moved to Nashville when I was 11, I never knew how deep my roots would run here! I attended Belmont University (Go Bruins!) where I met my husband David. We were married in 2008, and 4 months later, he was off to Iraq for a year. A couple of years after he returned home, we had our first daughter, Madeline, who is a lively redhead that keeps us on our toes! Any and all rumors you've ever heard about the nature of redheads are in fact true. Our second little girl, Violet, was born in July of this year and is the sweetest little addition. Before having children, I worked as a pediatric nurse for 7 years, and last year worked at two Williamson County high schools as a Health Science teacher. I will once again be staying home with the birth of our second daughter. I am new to the world of blogging, but look forward to the experience of getting to share stories, tips and advice with other local moms!
