A Fun Afternoon in Franklin, Tennessee

Merridee's Breadbasket Welcome Sign

Greg and I recently spent an enjoyable, fun afternoon in Franklin, Tennessee.

Our first stop was lunch at Merridee's Breadbasket in Franklin. (I have a confession to make-This is my very favorite place to eat in this whole area. You ought to try it and see for yourself.)

The food is fantastic, the people who work there are super nice, and Merridee's has a great atmosphere.

They make their own bakery goods.

After lunch, we walked around town to take in the sights.

The downtown shops are beautiful.

Here's a peek inside of one of them.

Kilwins has all kinds of goodies, and they must be doing something right as they have been in business since 1947!

Here's some of their wonderful fudge which Rose who works there explained to us.

Historic Franklin is, well, historic!

And, here's (above) some of the proof.

And, it's entertaining!

After all of this walking and visiting shops, we decided to stop by one of Greg's favorite places, Starbucks. 

We'd never before been to this particular one, and it was even more special since it was housed in this awesome old building.

It was a nice day so we decided to have our refreshments outside. We asked a passerby to take our picture, and she turned out to be a fellow artist! Small world!

Her name is Jennie Schut, and according to her business card, she is a "Creator, Retreat Leader, Artist, Author." She is a very talented artist. Check out her two websites.
