Week 6: The City You Live In

So when Life happens and you didn’t get to write all week, your scheduled posts end up posting anyway (yeah, 50 year old brain forgot to un-schedule…face palm!)

But this morning, I’m in a writing mood, so I’ll get some things ready to go for this week…starting with today’s post about why I’m grateful for the city I live in!

Mount Juliet, TN

This town is currently BOOMING and it’s easy to see why. I moved here 3 years ago and immediately fell in love with the clean, safe, wholesome environment this city exudes. We are just 20 minutes from downtown Nashville… Nightlife, amazing music (obviously), sports, art, history can all be found here. What intrigues me about the Nashville area is that it is definitely urban, but still has a small town vibe.

This town of Mount Juliet loves itself…meaning, the mayor and city council are good at adding little touches throughout the town that remind us of the town roots. I’ll have to go out later and add some pics to this post to show you what I mean… beautiful parks, signs, flowers, the music city star train depot, our welcome center, vignettes of days gone by are just a few things that make our town visually appealing.

There is history here…stories of haunted places, historical people who passed through town, and locations of baptisms in the creek. Small businesses who thrived from decades past and new ones that thrive today. I love supporting the many small businesses and restaurants all over town.

Mount Juliet has so many conveniences located in a small area…everything I need is accessible within a few minutes of my house. This town may be growing fast, but you can still visit a restaurant once a week and get to know the regulars…you’ll soon call them friends….I do!
