new years in nashville!

i went to nashville a few months back to visit my friends shannon & tom (more on that trip here & here). i had such a great time that when they told me they were hosting a new years eve party i knew i couldn't miss it! luckily a few friends from college also wanted to join in on the festivities so we all decided to drive down south together to ring in the new year.

knowing we had a long trip to and from nashville we thought it would be neat to take the bourbon trail through kentucky on the way down. i had never been to kentucky so it was fun to check another state off the list! we made a stop at the lexington brewing and distillery co and went on a tour which was so informative! we were also able to try both the beer and the bourbon they produce so our little detour turned out to be a great way to break up our drive! following our tour we asked some locals for a must try restaurant and ended up at billy's bbq. i had pulled pork with corn bread, coleslaw, and the best grits ever!!
once we arrived in nashville we hit the ground running. we spent the next few days eating and enjoying each others company. i was really fortunate to start the new year off with such great friends in such a fun city! here's to 2014!
 
and of course thanks to shannon and tom for their hospitality!
