Tennessee Department of Agriculture
Nashville, TN – Rural vistas, country music, and easy access from just about anywhere make Tennessee a popular summertime destination according to the Tennessee Department of Agriculture. When friends and relatives come to visit, consider skipping the crowds and costs of a typical tourist attraction and head to a local farm.
Picking peaches, making soap, or taking an art class create great memories in a relaxed setting. Many agritourism farms have sheltered areas for picnics, playgrounds for children, and areas to explore at a visitor’s own pace.
And no, its not when my Husband Proposed
Murfreesboro, TN – Do you know someone who is extremely bold? I don’t mean someone who will go skydiving or ride a bull; I mean someone who is bold in their speech – the kind of boldness that catches you off-guard, the kind of boldness that causes you to pause, the kind of boldness that almost feels offensive or uncomfortable.
I had a friend who was bold in her speech the very first time I met her, and I am eternally thankful for her boldness.
