Some Of My Favorite Things

I'm smitten by all things Bellevue. Here are a few reasons why.

I'm originally from "The Port City," Mobile, Alabama. I attended Sewanee: The University of the South atop the Cumberland Plateau and have lived in the Nashville area since 2002. I am married to Jessica and have three lovely, rambunctious children, Rivers (7), Jewel (5), and Canon (11 weeks).

1. Bellevue is known for its parks, and the Full Moon Pickin' Party, held on the Friday closest to the full moon, May-September, is a great way to enjoy them. 2. Speaking of parks, Red Caboose Park is an urban oasis where kids of all ages can run, climb and play. 3. The YMCA has always been near and dear to my heart, even as a kid growing up in Mobile. The folks at the Bellevue branch are the kindest, most welcoming people on the planet. 4. Is Avocado Toast still a thing? It is if it comes from Boots & Good Co., a favorite Bellevue coffee shop. 5. Richard Bowers is an incredible visual artist. Here he is at work in his Bellevue studio. 6. Local crooner Gabe Dixon's song, "Even The Rain," featuring Alison Krauss is a staple feel-good love song in my music library.
