a bird ballet

I'm hesitant to post anything else bird related for fear that they are becoming an unintentional blog theme as of late, but I couldn't resist sharing the above video I spotted on Black Eiffel.

"A Bird Ballet"  shows what I've only recently learned is called a murmuration of birds dancing across a pink sky. The chill soundtrack couldn't be more fitting.

Let's just call this our Friday afternoon moment of zen. Something tells me we could all use such a moment after this week...

Cheers and happy (almost) weekend!

striped rugs

S and I are only a few weeks away from moving into our new house here in Nashville.

The house has been restored, but was originally built in 1910.  It has tall ceilings and windows with dark wood floors. While the floors were a main selling point for us, we are in the market for a new living room rug to help cozy up the place.

We are obsessed with the simplicity of a bold striped style. We have settled on grey and white striped option, but these other styles have me rethinking our color choice. Lovely yet classic, no?

grapefruit frozen yogurt

One of our most favorite treats is a stop by Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams in East Nashville. The Ohio-based company runs 9 stores in its home state and one here in Tennessee. As some of you might know, this successful expansion story is after my own heart...but I digress : )

I'm not traditionally much of a sweets person, but Jeni's interesting, seasonal flavors made of natural ingredients keep me interested. Wildberry Lavender, Goat Cheese with Red Cherries, Lime get the idea!

Starting this week off by listening to Tristen on repeat. The Illinois native and current Nashville resident's 2011 album Charlatans at the Garden Gate is most definitely my jam.
