Leaving Nashvegas


Some readers may get the Sheryl Crow song reference in the title. I told you I'm on a music kick.

So, I was really sad to leave Nashville today. Part of that, I'm sure, is because my leaving also involved dropping Brooke off at the airport. Plus, we just had a really good time the past few days. I let everyone be the boss of me, and I didn't make a single decision for three days. In fact, on NYE, I didn't even decide what I was having for dinner. (Well, I tried, but after ordering two meals and having our waiter return to say they were out of both, I made him decide. It's okay, he paid too.)

Anyway, the drive home today was bittersweet. I love driving in the car by myself and listening (and singing) to all the random music on my iPod, but I also knew I was heading back to the Ham, real life and all. Which got me thinking: I could live in Nashville. I really could. I love Birmingham, but if I had to choose a few other cities in which to live, Nashville would top the list. Here it is.

1. Nashville
2. Dallas
3. San Francisco
4. Atlanta
5. NYC
6. Louisville

What are yours?

That's a tough one. Rob would live in the UP of Michigan. I don't think he'd have a #2. Me? Probably Michigan, Alabama, Hawaii...

I've heard that there's a Chick-fil-A on NYU's campus. So NYC might be doable for you.

Other than Birmingham, the only other place I would want to live is to move back to NYC. If we won the lottery we'd buy an apartment on Central Park West so we can watch the Thanksgiving Day parade from our balcony. You'd all be invited for brunch.
