Southern Ground Music and Food Festival

Hey everybody!

Greetings from Nashville! (Or is it Nosh-ville?!) Meredith and I have made the short drive to this beautiful city for a little work and a little play... You can mix those, right?

We're in town photographing a couple of amazing clients and also to hear some great music:

If you know us at all, you know our favorite musician is Jason Mraz, who is making a special appearance with the Zac Brown Band! Is it wrong that we decided to come merely based on that?

We are also obsessed with the show Nashville, and I have a celebrity crush on Clare Bowen (and Mere has a talent crush)! Well she is also playing with ZBB

Lastly (though, not really lastly) we learned about Lennon and Maisy long before they were on the same show, but fell in love with this little sister duo (especially after they recorded "I Won't Give Up" on their YouTube channel), and after I discovered they were performing too, I nearly exploded.

Can you believe I haven't talked about food yet? Y'all know my love for cooking, food, and chefs, and one of my super-faves will be here serving up a signature dish: Stephanie Izard. I adored her on Top Chef, and have been meaning to go to Chicago and eat at The Girl and The Goat!

Be sure to follow Mere and me on Instagram for mini updates! (@dalebenfield and @merebenfield)

Talk to you soon,

Alaska Proposal; The Time I Almost Blew It.

Hey everybody! Did you ever know something 100% in your heart, but you almost screw it up?  So goes the story of my proposal to Tyler. ...
