It’s Thanksgiving week, and we know that 2016 has been a tough year for many of you. And yet, we have so much to be thankful for here in Nashville, so we wanted to take some time to notice some of the good in our beautiful city as we move into the holiday season.
In case you haven’t noticed, Nashville has been growing! And with growth has come a lot of new bites, sips, and things to do and see. We’re so thankful for the food on our tables each morning, noon, and night. We’re also grateful that folks in the community are working hard so that everyone can have access to nutritious meals. Want to contribute? Skip your morning latte and consider a contribution to the Nashville Food Project to help alleviate hunger in Nashville.
We’re also thankful to be able to step outside and enjoy moments in nature just outside of Nashville. Take a walk at Percy Warner Park or Radnor Lake and be grateful for these spaces for respite in our busy city. It takes a lot of work and generosity to keep these spaces beautiful for your morning hikes, so if you love these trails, consider donating here or here to support their maintenance.
Another great moment this year: Nashville elected our first woman mayor. No matter your party lines or beliefs, we hope everyone can agree that electing our first woman to this office is pretty darn awesome. If you want to show your support for local shops that support women, we recommend stopping in Thistle Farms and Hey Rooster to name just a few. Or make a contribution to Women for Tennessee’s Future and support women in leadership positions throughout our state.
And lastly, we’re thankful for communities like GetFit615 and Shakti Yoga that cultivate self-love and body positivity through movement. Check out their schedule for $5 community classes offered every week or take a class at their new affiliated studio, Aspire Nashville – a donation-based studio supporting children’s organizations in town.
We’re so very grateful for this community, and we wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving holiday!
