" The trip of a lifetime" part 1

Trip of a lifetime!
That's what the package that Katie bid on was called and it turned out to be a true description! It truly was something I will long remember. I arrived in Nashville on Sunday and then picked the girls up when they arrived Monday afternoon. Then it was off for a nice dinner with my family at Carabbas. Then back to the Krikac's house {which is darling by the way, very homey and southern
We all got cozy in jammies and talked. Since Sara was at camp they camped out at her house with its  Tinkerbell lamps and fairy wings . It is the cutest little house and you feel like you are at Disney. The next morning we were off for a coffee at the local Starbucks where the stars often hang out. {darn...none that day}  Then I took the girls to the Thrift Store to meet the kids and see the GREAT things going on there. You can hardly walk in the building without feeling the love and joy and it reduced me to tears more than once. The kids are precious!  The first time I saw Beth she yelled out
" I love you Karen" and I melted. Dave showed the girls all around and  gave them un-circulated photos of Marilyn Monroe with my uncle Nick! They loved it....

Then we were off to Puckett's for lunch which is true southern food. Pulled pork, corn cake and squash casserole. It was all amazing! We spent the rest of the afternoon shopping and enjoying old town Franklin. Then it was off to the hotel to meet our host " J.D. Hass" They were taking us that night to the famous Bluebird Cafe and that turned out to be AMAZING! The singer/ songwriters were so talented and in such a small venue it was amazing to listen to the music and feel the emotion! Plus just knowing thow many greats were discovered in that same cafe. The history was something you could feel. What a fun night! So much fun already and sooo much more to come!
