How was your weekend? Despite the dreariness, I honestly just had one of the best weekends I've had in years. On Saturday, Keith and I went to Nashville Public Library to hear Yann Martel, author of Life of Pi and Beatrice and Virgil, speak about his work. The event was so full, a huge number of people were diverted to another room to watch the speech on a monitor. But we unexpectedly got rockstar front row seats. I sat two seats away from Mayor Karl Dean. And I got to ask a question that's bothered me about Beatrice & Virgil for over a year! But I've already told you about that...
After the book event, Keith treated me to a surprise romantic dinner at Morton's Steakhouse. Their Secret Garden cocktail is subtle but delicious--cucumber, elderflower liquer, and fresh thyme... yum! We ended the evening with good friends at Mercy Lounge. Wild Cub was my musical discovery of the evening. On Sunday, we went horseback riding at Juro Stables. I love riding, and I hadn't been in the saddle in years. I was lucky to get a frisky horse who cantered whenever he had room to move.
So, I'm feeling inspired. I'm going to make something in these colors tonight. Hmm, what to make? I'm SURE I can think of something!
