Saturday mornings at the Gillean's usually look like this: Tim makes breakfast, I have two cups of coffee and then we venture out onto the winding back roads in Maury county. Ever since we moved here, we spend Saturdays exploring and finding fun spots around us. Tim drives (I'm the deejay) so I never really know where we're going to end up. But the past two weeks, our adventures have taken us to downtown Columbia, TN.
Honestly, I wouldn't mind if we ended up in this little town every Saturday. There's so much to look at and really good coffee to drink. If you find yourself in downtown Columbia, or even if you don't, you need to stop by Muletown for a cup of coffee. I ordered something called the Hardison Hill or Hardison Mill. I can't really remember, but it was delicious and it was sweetened with the perfect blend of honey, vanilla and cinnamon. I'm sorry I can't remember the name of it. This is why I could never be a investigative reporter. But listen, the facts aren't important with a drink this delicious. Just describe it to the barista and they'll know what you're talking about.
And then, after you get your coffee, you'll want to continue your walk about town and check out the adorable shops. Tim got a few things at Southern Exposure, a clothing store for outdoorsy people. We browsed around Oak and Lace, it's a super cute shop with different vendors selling things like handmade jewelry, decor, clothing and tons more. And of course we stopped in at Lilly Jane boutique. This was my favorite shop. They have everything a great boutique should have: adorable clothing, accessories, stationary, jewelry, homegoods and even a children's section (with BlaBla dolls!).
We also went into a health foods store and bought some ear candles! But that's a whole different blog post.
After all that shopping and walking, we had worked up an appetite so we grabbed a late lunch at the Square Market. It was just delicious and it's one of those places you can tell has lots of regulars. I highly recommend it!
I wonder where our adventure will lead us next Saturday!
