Bristol is twenty-five miles away from my home in Johnson City. It is a twin city because it is in the state of Tennessee and also Virginia. The state line runs down the middle of its main street, State Street. We spent a fun Saturday exploring the town and enjoyed an early dinner at Eatz on Moore Street.
We snapped the above photos on the grounds of the old Sullins College. It was a former Methodist, female, junior college in Bristol, founded about 1868 and named for David Sullins, a Methodist minister. It ceased operations after the class of 1976 graduated.
This young male deer was munching away in someone’s yard in the middle of town. It always amazes me to see woodland creatures adapting to life in the city.
Mark & Lisa Canty own and operate Eatz, a restaurant serving southern style comfort food. A few doors down is the studio where Kenny Chesney made his first self-released demo album at the Classic Recording Studio. Around the corner is the Birthplace of Country Music Museum.
The white ankle jeans are by J.Jill here. The Clara Sunwoo top was from My Fair Lady last year. I am wearing the Ultimate shaper here from Shapeez.com. The sunglasses are by Oscar De La Renta.
The shoes are by Treasure & Bond here. The tote bag is by Dooney & Bourke here
Collard greens require good vinegar and some hot pepper sauce.
I’ve never been to a church supper or a family gathering that didn’t include at least one serving dish of banana pudding. A warm brownie with ice cream is the ultimate comfort food.
The second half tastes the same as the first so I switch to sipping water after that.
Have a beautiful day!
