Arrington Vineyards, October 2012. Every season better than the last. Like a little vacation, only free. Sometimes people email me to say, "I'm visiting Nashville. Where should I go?" Sometimes I forget to tell them to pack a picnic and drive half an hour south of town through some of the nicest countryside in Tennessee. Stop when you get to the long drive with the big wine barrels, walk into the cozy lodge at the top of the hill, enjoy some free sips of local wine and some handmade raspberry chocolate bits. In the winter, there are bonfires. Sometimes a bluegrass band. Picnics year-round, even in the snow. It's one of my favorite pieces of land on this whole earth.
P.S. The color-coordination of the pants and skirt was not premeditated. I promise!
