We had a meeting lined up today with MODA Boutique, a house turned shop in what felt like the Alberta district of Nashville. We showed up a bit early, so stylist Clare sent us across a patio to Frothy Monkey for a reliably rad cup of coffee. Indeed, it was.

What happened next happens frequently, but it's always a delight. Clare started getting excited about the jewelry before Meredith arrived. Meredith popped in, we wrote an order, and got a recommendation for lunch.

We swapped music recommendations. Having not heard the Adele album ourselves, she sang a few bars quietly for us tableside. Such a lovely voice. A perfect meal.

We got the truffled fries with the slider trio: Benton's bacon, Tennessee sweetwater white cheddar, jack daniels maple ketchup. Wilted arugula, peppermint dijon, boursin cheese. Cremini, gruyere, balsamic bbq sauce. Topped it all off with a local beer, Yazoo. Amazing. [caption id="attachment_2979" align="aligncenter" width="450" caption="Me at Burger Up. Seriously, I was WAY happier than this. I was practicing my serious face."][/caption] A HUGE PS! As I typed this, we got an order from Gin-O Boutique in Franklin, TN! That makes TWELVE new wholesale accounts in this trip! ***Song of the Moment: The Color, by Yellowbirds***
