Old Red Boots on the Move

Alice, Matt and Myself at the Tour de Fat 
Dearest readers, I'm sorry with the lack of an outfit post today. Things in my world have been a little crazy lately and my posting will be fairly sporadic for the next few weeks, so bear with me. First of all, my Great Uncle Saully passed away on Friday and was laid to rest yesterday. He was a most wonderful man, full of life and great stories until the end. He had a jam-packed 90 years and while I'm so sad to see him go, I'm thankful for the time I had with him and how he chose to live. He is truly an inspiration. 

Additionally, my friends Matt and Alice are in town from Colorado and we have been having a blast! There has been karaoke, BBQ, flea market, Tour de Fat and even an Jonathan Richman show. I love having the opportunity to host friends at my house and show them all the goodies in Nashville. Now, if only I can convince these lovely people to move here in a few years. :)

In other news, I've quit my old job and will be starting a new one next month. I don't discuss work on the blog because honestly, that isn't what this space is about and I have no intention of boring you fine readers, but I'll just say that this is a great change for me and I'll be looking forward to the new challenges. I expect to be very busy with all the new work, so please be gentle if I'm slow to comment or respond to emails.

So here's to changes and Uncle Saully!


  1. I'm sorry for your loss, Lauren.

    I'm finally getting the chance to host a friend for a couple days this week, and I am looking forward to showing her around and having a good time! I keep thinking how this is the last summer I will be in this town, and it's got me so motivated to really soak it all in and get out more.

    1. I find that you only do the touristy stuff when you 1) Have people visiting or 2) find out your are leaving. I really wish that wasn't the case- you find out fun stuff only when it is too late to enjoy it

  2. So sorry for the loss of your relative, but congrats on the new job. Exciting things on the horizon.

  3. hello dear,
    I'm sorry for your uncle, is always sad losing people you love :( I send you an hug!
    But I'm really happy for your new job I would be so lucky and I also find one!
    Good luck

  4. I'm so sorry for your loss. Just like you said though... it's about the time you had with him. The memories always outlast the person.
    Having traveling friends is the best! You get to show them all the neat things about your city. I hope you do convince them. As for the job. Yay! A change is always good.

  5. So, so sorry about your uncle.
    Congrats on the new job and yay for having good friends in town! Tour de Fat is my favorite event every year :)

  6. Sorry to hear about your great uncle! It's exciting that you are moving on to greener pastures with your job! Good luck to you!

  7. Hey girl, I'm sorry to hear about your uncle. But congratulations on your new job! I hope everything works out awesome for you! Have a great 4th of July
