As I mentioned in a Nashville themed blog post last November, Nashville, Tennessee is one of my all-time favorite cities. While I only spent a short period of time there, I was devastated to hear about the floods that swept through the vibrant city. My heart goes out to all of the victims, but especially to my friend Jamie’s grandparents, who have temporarily relocated to her house in Atlanta while their house is repaired.
