never travel without: a journal and a disposable camera

how many pairs of shoes: two: platform boots and chuck taylors
what were you listening to: patsy cline, dolly parton, and every shade of bluegrass
favorite meal: hot chicken at prince’s--worth every fiery bite. another notable meal occurred after spending the night locked out of our airbnb. we crawled into roze cafe in east nashville for some truly life-reviving coffee and eggs.
highlight of the trip: road tripping through parts of america i’ve never been before. finally understanding the meaning of ‘honky tonk.’ the part of the johnny cash museum where they just play the ‘hurt’ music video on loop. what a town!
