When we lived in Nashville, we became great friends with Kyle and Tara Jackson. Today, Tara drove 5 hours from their new home in Little Rock to spend the day with us! It's been 2 years since we've see each other, and it was so awesome to have the whole day together!
We spent the day enjoying some of the pleasures of Nashville:
- shopping at Opry Mills Mall
- visiting Tara's aunt, whose late husband played piano for Rosemary Clooney, and singing Amazing Grace acapella for her
- sampling rosemary, pear, goat cheese, and other exotic-flavoured ice cream at Jeni's
- singing, laughing, telling stories, and sharing our music dreams...
We've said this so many times this week: we're so grateful for email, Facebook, and Skype for giving us the ability to keep in touch with people.
But nothing, nothing beats sitting face to face with a great friend...
