Spring into Home

Welcome to March, where opportunities seem unlimited with the introduction to spring. It’s the season of transitioning from cold to warm, from short days to longer ones, from hibernation to awakening, from bud to bloom.  Personally, I love the possibilities of springtime. I envision being able to actually put into action many of the things … Continued

Curating Creativity

I often feel Music City is mislabeled. Yes, it’s where a country music artist is born, but there’s so much more to Nashville and its surrounding suburbs (Franklin!) than just music. Franklin is a community of passionate artists, aspiring authors, stimulating writers, innovative designers, diverse entrepreneurs, gifted musicians and so much more. And in this … Continued

Wishing You Wellness

Happy New Year, Franklin! The start of a new year means a lot of things to me. It represents my ability to close the door on some of the things that may be dragging me down. A new year also represents a fresh view of my opportunities and the things that are most important and … Continued

For Auld Lang Syne

Phew! As the saying goes, time flies when you’re having fun. And time sure has flown by this year as we can’t believe we’ve put together the final issue of Franklin Lifestyle in 2018! It’s been a year of change here at Franklin Lifestyle. We’ve expanded, made lots of new friends and enjoyed seeing our team and vision … Continued

Giving Thanks

Welcome to November. I can barely bring myself to say it, but it’s here: the 11th month of 2018. Where does the time go? I swear, it was just June.  But anyway, here we are. The 11th month brings with it sweater weather, changing leaves, Thanksgiving break, and—inevitably—Christmas shopping. And in this issue, we cover … Continued

Food, Glorious Food!

I have a fall confession, so brace yourself. Pumpkin spice—I’m just not that into it. I know. I hear the gasps already, but it’s true. I figure I’m simply saving room for all the other fantastic food finds around Franklin. October is our food issue, and this month at Franklin Lifestyle, we’re all about feasting with foodies as we just scratch … Continued

“Fall” into Style

Hello, Franklin. Welcome to September. This month brings the first days of fall. When I think of fall, I envision a renewed sense of focus and purpose. It’s a season of transition, right? Leaves will start to turn soon. Temperatures will start to decline. Things are starting to change. Summer brings a lot to the … Continued

Tails of Friendship

When we let pets into our homes, they quickly and easily also find a place into our hearts. They become a part of the family. Whether it’s your cat that paws your head at 5 a.m. or your panting dog begging to play catch, we can’t imagine our lives without them.  This issue celebrates the … Continued

Making Lists

I have a habit of making lists. Yes, I make the typical to-do lists and grocery lists. However, my longest list is also my favorite list. I have a “things to do” list on my phone. It currently has 71 places to visit around the area. Daunting? Perhaps. Doable? Absolutely! You see, when we moved to Franklin nearly four years … Continued

June is for the Gents

We told you your time would come, didn’t we, guys? Since the May issue was all about the ladies, we thought it was only fair the June issue of Franklin Lifestyle be dedicated to the gents of our community. And now that you’ve met the female movers and shakers of the community, we’ll introduce you … Continued
