the neighbo(u)rhood

37212 -- the zipcode where I'll be living (touch wood) come fall/early winter. For over a decade I've always said this is the area of urban Nashville where I'd want to live. It's got a very relaxed feel, somehow laid back but also buzzing at the same time & unlike much of the city which is very car-oriented, this area is amazing for getting about on foot, with leafy streets and beautiful campus grounds to cut through.
No less pedestrian than I, Joel's lived for almost the same amount of time right here -- in Edgehill (a historic mixed income residential neighbourhood), that's tucked in beside Music Row, Vanderbilt and Hillsboro/Belmont. Which means everything you see in this video (created for prospective Vandy students) is within in easy walking (or even easier cycling) distance, as is the new urban development called The Gulch and Downtown, which lie to our north. And which is why we have no plans to move anytime soon.
Anyways, for those who don't know Nashville, just thought I'd share a foretaste of the streets I'll be treading once the red tape's all been dealt with. I couldn't be happier that this is the neighborhood I'll be getting to call my own.



  1. i haven't been to Nashville in years. I love Fido's. I actually was officially a resident of Nashville for one day (I had just signed on an apartment when I got a job somewhere else). Good luck with the move!

  2. Can I just say how excited I am at the possibility of getting to connect with you in Nashville in the future - seeing as how that is family base for the Cliffords and all?

  3. likewise, Amy. so *totally* likewise. :)
