County Fair Fun (Weekly Winners)

There’s an event that happens in Middle Tennessee that my husband and I look forward to all year long. Literally, we will mention it multiple times through the year. The Wilson County Fair. My husband plays county fairs all across the country throughout the year, and as he says, “This is only one I’ll happily pay to attend.” It’s just the most epic county fair!!

This year, my husband happened to be playing the fair, so we went twice. Once for the show. Once just for us. Of course, between the two nights, it gave me tons of photo fodder. So… here’s a crazy photo-laden post.

Family-like friends

Living 800+ miles away from family, I rely on my friends here in Nashville heavily for a support system. Many have become like family to me… all of us to each other.

Last night, we all went on a little field trip to the Wilson County Fair. This has become a yearly tradition (Monday night of the fair), but this year was extra special because my husband’s artist was headlining the show that night. After the show, as many of us as was left after the show (some had to leave early) gathered to take a picture together. I love this shot… makes my heart so happy.

 

Many, many thanks to one of my husband’s band mates for offering to take the shot for us so I could be in it, too.

My husband and I went on a road trip last weekend, and I always intended to do a “ride report” about it. I never got around to it, so those photos are included here.
