Welcome to Franklin, Tennessee!!

Day eight, and here we are! I wanted to share some pictures of my new hometown of Franklin, TN. You can check it out at www.franklin-gov.com/visitors/html To quote the visitor’s bureau, “Franklin is a charming, historic, and sophisticated destination located just “100 years and a few short miles from Nashville.” I am completely in love with my pretty new hometown. I think these pictures will show you why! I can hardly wait to do some exploring around town…

Hi Victoria Lynn...So nice to have you visit me via DonnaLynn. You Lynn's (all 3) are just dolls and so sweet. I feel like I have New best friends and you all hail from Washington my Home sweet Home.

I Know through Donna that you were moving to my side of the country...I am just above ya in Michigan. I love the area you are moving to. You will I am sure, find the south a breath of fresh air and the people so warm and friendly. God surely has wonderful plans for you there.

I was reading your bio and we have a lot in common. I have an only girl, love many of the things you do and should have been and Interior Designer, but didn't know much about it way back when...If you don't mind I am adding you to my favs so I can visit more often.

Your picture of your new home is beautiful! I just love the brick homes and how clean they look, don't you...Can't wait to see how you decorate it all up. Fresh new beginnings...sometimes those are the best! Hope you have a great time with Donna when she comes. I'll be checking back again real soon!

God Bless...Lorena

PS...your babies (kitties/dog) are so precious! And wow, they look like they traveled real well with you!

Dear BFF,
I can not believe how lovely the downtown is! WOW, what is wrong with the town planners here in Port Orchard anyways???? We could have such a wonderful waterfront...but NOOOOOO, everyone has their heads up their...armpits Teh Hee!

Can't wait to get there and see all of this in person, just a few more days and a long plane ride, and I will be there!
XXOO,
DL

Oh, how lovely! What fun you are having. And how wonderfully strange to hear from you clear across the country, and it doesn't seem any different for us here on this end. Glad we can still keep in touch!

Hi Victoria Lynn,
I feel like I know you from your two best friends. Your town looks wonderful. We were just in Tennessee and love it. I had a antique/quilting shop for 6 years too. I'm having a giveaway on the site, if you like aprons, go and see and give me a post.
Have a Blessed Day,
Bonnie

Looks absolutely DIVINE. Hope that beautiful new home is big enough for guests -- Tennessee isn't so far from Michigan, you know. :-))

Hope the unpacking is sailing smoothly!

Hey girl, welcome to your new home. I love Franklin, it is so beautiful. One of my best friends lived there, she has now moved to Knoxville, and I visited her a few times out there. Hope you find a wonderful church, and that you are blessed with many new friends.
take care and God bless you.
