Saturday was a gorgeous day – one of those Nashville February days that make you forget there has to be a March before April. It was 65 degrees and sunny, and luckily I filled the day with fun to take full advantage of the beauty.
Manda and I had decided to celebrate Saturdays being work-free (a relatively new concept for me, and a brand-new one for her) by hitting up a new brunch place for breakfast. Biscuit Love began as a food truck and now has a brick and motor location. We got there in the nick of time – not ten minutes after we ordered, the line was out the door.
I couldn’t resist the basic biscuits and gravy, which is not the most photographic food. It was great, and my only complaint was that the gravy cooled off too quickly, which is always a danger with biscuits and gravy. Manda had the Lily- biscuit french toast with lemon mascarpone and blueberry compote. I’m definitely getting that next time. And there will be a next time. To seal the deal, they had good coffee and absolutely delicious fresh-squeezed orange juice.
After hitting up the sales at the Ann Taylor Loft next door, I dropped Manda off back at her house… but quickly called her while I was still in her driveway. It was a beautiful day… why not go bike riding?
Nashville has a bike rental program that features stations of bikes throughout the city – rent a bike, ride it around, and return it at the same station or a station across the city. There is a station right on a greenway, so it’s the perfect opportunity to rent a cute red bike and jump on the greenway. We rode to the grocery store, visited a friend at work, and ended up riding to another park a few miles away.
I’ve missed riding, so it definitely inspired me to get my bike down here and ride more often. It was the perfect Saturday adventure! And maybe I began to burn off that gravy. At least began.
Here’s to 65 degree days in February.
