Last night I had one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. The event was a gathering of southern bloggers put together by Forest Home Media and hosted by Nashville’s Talk of the Town host, Meryll Rose.
Not only is Meryll an amazing host and cook, but she is a wonderful decorator who has created a beautiful home.

Bloggers and local media gathered in her beautiful home, where Meryll and her husband prepared an amazing meal for us.

Much of the meal was straight out of Meryll’s garden.

Forest Home Media put together a weekend full of events for the group, like shopping and lying on the furniture at the HGTV Smart Home in Nashville. That’s a big deal – no one was allowed to sit on the furniture until now. I had to work yesterday, so I didn’t get to do that!

So much fun! Many of the girls are hitting the Nashville Flea Market and historic Leiper’s Fork today for shopping and site-seeing. I hear there may be some honky-tonking tonight as well. Can you believe I’ve lived in Nashville my entire life, and I’ve never been honky-tonking???
