About Me – Mom in Music City

About Me


Welcome to Mom in Music City.  I am Sabine and I blog about my adventures as a single mom to  two adult children and a teen in Nashville. After living in Los Angeles for over 20 years, I packed my few belongings, grabbed the kids and dogs and moved to Music City.

When I am not working,  I enjoy working on the fixer-upper I purchased in 2014. This could mean gutting the bathroom, refinishing hardwood floors, painting the exterior of the house, fixing my oven, building furniture, staining the deck, and whatever else falls in my lap. I became a DIYer because it’s the only way I could afford to get the look I wanted in our home.

My days aren’t all DIY and work. I also share snippets about Nashville, travel, food, beauty, and everything else I’m passionate about.

If you’d like to get in touch, email me at [email protected]. If you want to keep up with me on social media, find me on Instagram,  Facebook, and Twitter.

      Thanks! I’m so excited to try your yummy recipes! I think I’ll start with the blueberry oatmeal pancakes. I’m obsessed with blueberries.

    My husband and I discovered Nashville when my son was stationed at Fort Campbell. I felt that I could never leave that town… Street musicians, sight seeing, wonderful people, and ” Antique Archeology”, great shopping, the Grand Old Opery tour, and so on, and so on! We’ve been three times, once with our grandson, who loved the history of the battlegrounds of the South. I wish We could go back every year,!

    Hey Sabine,
    I am definitely going to try building the island; so glad I found your post! I have only known one other Sabine in my life. She was a graphic designer and we worked together for a while in Atlanta. I am also a divorcee with three kids who just bought a fixer-upper. Talk about parallels! Best to you!

      So nice of you to say ‘hi’ and so nice to meet another adventurous (crazy haha) single mom who’s not afraid of a fixer upper. You got this, girl! 🙂
