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…
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.
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?
