My Sunday Paper - Volume 20

How did you celebrate the first day of summer? My friend Lindsay and I went to Taste of Music City to sip and nibble on samplings from Nashville's best restaurants and vineyards/breweries/distilleries.  Favorites?

Here's the round up for the week!

Officially Summer

If you don't have anything nice to say...

I love Jimmy Kimmel's "Mean Tweets" segments. They're a lesson in two things. 1. How to take criticism like a boss, and 2. how not to give unfounded criticism.  Freedom of speech + the internet does not mean you need to say every single thing that pops into your head, y'all.
