I snapped at Michael as I heated up soggy tortillas on minuscule plates. They were the only ones I could find and he asked me to fetch him the soap.
“I have no earthly idea where it is.” I said and slammed my hands on my hips, peering at him from the pile in our living room.

But once we did, everything felt better. A weight had been lifted. I've never moved from a house to another house before and it makes me want to never move again. Also, I just want to purge everything.

After finally feeling good about the house we decided to do some exploring. We took a train about an hour east of Nashville to the Wilson County Fair– one of the largest in the state of Tennessee.  If you follow me on snapchat (helenesula) you saw some of the antics. I was so shocked at how much fun I had at this fair. Having the State Fair of Texas in your backyard, I was pretty biased. But the fair was a lot of fun.

After eating my fair share of horse drawn ice cream we took the train back to Nashville and hit up downtown Nashville. But alas, Michael and I were lamed and called it quits pretty early and went home. You know you're old when…
