Daynise Joseph is a Nashville native, wife, mother and Community Impact Manager at Google Fiber Nashville.
Why Daynise is lovin’ Nashville right now:
Being native to Nashville is a rare find in this city these days. So I love being able to share my firsthand account of the city’s growth and highs and lows of its journey to being an “It City.” Nashville evolved from being the city I couldn’t wait to leave, to becoming the city I love and am proud to call home. It’s nice to have great fantastic restaurants and fun events to attend when I want to go out or have a date night.
Mornings are when my energy is highest so I am an early riser. During the week, I wake up at 4:30 a.m., have coffee, read, and begin to plan priorities for the day. I try to squeeze in a quick workout at the Green Hills YMCA a few mornings each week. From there, it’s a short and easy commute to our office in the Gulch. I use that time to listen to music that gets me pumped for the day.
During the week, I’m usually in meetings until late afternoon. However, on weekends, I could be doing anything from attending a Geek Girl Brunch, to working on home projects, to standing in line at Slim + Husky’s for amazing pizza.
On most nights, I cook dinner for my family, so I rely heavily on Yummly and the Instant Pot to help me prepare a variety of delicious meals. Sometimes my husband and I enjoy an evening after-dinner stroll around the neighborhood.
One of the best parts of living in Music City is the music! On the fourth Saturday of the month, you will find me at the Boom Bap! I also enjoy Sunday Night Soul at the 5 Spot and going to hear live music at City Winery. On the nights I stay in, I love to stream my favorite shows and movies.
I love to spend time outdoors, so you can regularly catch me at Jazz on the Cumberland or at festivals like the TN Renaissance Festival, the Cherry Blossom Festival, the Celebrate Nashville Festival, the TN Craft Fair, the African Street Festival, Oktoberfest and many others!
