Things I Love About Fall (Nashville, TN Edition)

This blog contains sponsored content and the following post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

Growing up in the Caribbean, I read about autumn leaves changing into bright and delightful colors. I read about the crisp air, pumpkin patches, scarecrows and such.  But, it was not until I became an adult, subsequently moving to the United States, that I finally got to experience the wonders of fall for myself.

Now, my 2 year old daughter gets to experience the fall wonder so much earlier than I did.  I am glad that we get to share these memories together.  On a recent trip to Nashville, we celebrated “fall” in all of her marvelous glory.  Obviously, fall has to be a “she” with all those beautifully colored leaves…

Comfort Food

So, if you do not know it by now, I am a natural born foodie.  We eat quite healthy at home but, when I splurge, I really, really do.

The Grilled Cheeserie was a food truck I saw featured on a show called Eat Stree recently, so I just had to try.

Apparently, the food truck has developed quite a following.

One look at the menu, and you will know why.

The lady that served us at the window was so pleasant, how could you not indulge?

I had the B&B of Tennessee.  It was toasted more than I would like, but other than that, it hit the spot on a crisp fall day.

Scarecrows and Such

Ok, scarecrows, really? But they were so cute.  Not, the scariest scarecrows that I have seen.  Over at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, these scarecrows were cute and friendly.

There were at least a dozen of them. All donated and displayed by different organizations. This one was my favorite.

Pumpkin Patch

I were so excited  experience our first pumpkin patch together.  The pumpkin patch was also on property at Cheekwood Gardens.

Simply beautiful.  Lots of pumpkins of all types. And a fun game too!

And, guess what? There is even a mansion on property at Cheekwood Gardens.  No photos are allowed in the building though.  So, use your imagination for this part.

What are your favorite fall activities?
