Day Date

Last weekend, Shawn and I decided it was time to go out and see some of what the Nashville area has to offer us. It was time to step away from the music and hype and step back into history to learn. We went to the Lotz House in Franklin, TN.

The Lotz House was a part of one of the bloodiest battles of the American Civil War. The German immigrant family that lived there were made to flee when the battle started around their home. While they were gone, their house was brutalized by bullets and cannon fire, the original floors are dented from canon balls, and certain parts of the floors are darkly stained from all of the soldier's blood. In one of my pictures, you can see the red flag hanging over the front door, this is to symbolize that the house was once used as a hospital.

The ladies that did the tour were so sweet and full of southern charm. They shared their love of history and their town, it was absolutely wonderful to gain some of their knowledge. 

It was very surreal to get to visit a spot with so much history. The home also has one of the best antique collections in the southeast. If you want to learn more about the house, check it out here

Here is a new giveaway for the month of December. You have a chance to win some gorgeous photography from Anna Delores Photography. If you win, you get to choose one print from her Etsy shop and let me tell you, there are some wonderful choices! First I want to share about this beautiful shop and the person behind it.

Anna Delores Photography is based out of sunny Los Angeles, California, although these photos look much more like a wonderful travel journal. The eye behind these photos comes from Emily, who has a great eye for landscapes and architecture with a vintage view. The name to her shop is paying tribute to her ancestry, the name "Anna Delores Photography" comes from her maternal great-grandmother (Anna) and her paternal grandmother (Delores).

In order to enter, first you must subscribe to both this blog and Emily's blog here. For extra entries, you can add her twitter, facebook or my twitter or facebook. So, if you do it right you can have up to 5 entries. The giveaway will run for 10 days - so it will end at 11:59 pm CST on December 22nd.
