Nashville Greek Festival–Celebrating Greek culture at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Brentwood, TN. Say what? Delicious Chicken Gyro, Greek doughnuts (Loukoumades), dancing, a fantastic tour of the church by a woman who is totally number 1 on my list of people I want to adopt me, friends, laughs, and lots of “Oopah!” It is such a colorful and beautiful church. The feeling that comes over you when you walk into any House of God is peaceful. It was lovely being around people celebrating their culture and sharing it with others. They love being Greek! There was such a beautiful family atmosphere. The Church has been holding the festival for 20 years and all of the money goes to the upkeep and enhancement of the facility.
Undie Sunday supporting the YWCA Domestic Violence Shelter–Have you ever stood outside of an NFL game asking people for their underwear? I have and it was awesome! The YWCA collects new underwear and pajamas for women and children who flee their homes due to domestic violence. Often the mothers arrive at the shelter with only the clothes on their back and their children. They need the essentials and the YWCA helps fill that need. An overwhelming amount of Titans and Patriots fan brought bags of goodies with them to the game all for this great cause. Their generosity made my heart swell up and plastered a smile on my face the whole day long. There are some awesome people in this world! Never forget that!
F. Scott’s Restaurant & Jazz Bar is another of Nashville’s 70 Best Restaurant that I can cross off my list! Thank God for Nashville Originals Restaurant Week! This is probably the only time I can actually afford a 3- course meal at F.Scott’s. Delicious food and great ambience. The piano player was fantastic especially when be tapped out “Overjoyed” by Stevie Wonder. Food, music, atmosphere, and fulfilling conversation with my food friend. Great way to spend a Tuesday evening after work.
Let’s see what else life has to bring in the next few days. No matter what, I am truly blessed and everyday I must remind myself to take it all in and be grateful for all that God has given me.
