I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung on her blog Heading Home. Today's prompt is "Here." Write for five minutes; unedited.
I'm here in Nashville this week. My sister surprised me with a sister's trip last Christmas. We have been here since Sunday night.
Monday we went on a tour of the Ryman and later to 3rd and Lindsley...a bar that was recommended to me by a musician friend. That place didn't disappoint at all. All I have to say is two words: Vince Gill. Vince plays here every Monday night with a group called the Time Jumpers. I was fangirling hard. I've loved Vince ever since I can remember.
Tues we went back to this place and heard a country showcase of young artists. So fun! Ate at Acme Feed and Seed--so yummy!
Wednesday--We rode on the General Jackson riverboat. Also because FMF friends are here for the retreat, I was able to meet a blog friend InRL.* So fun to explore Nashville with Jen and my sis. Even ate at Monells--good home cooked food!
Today we toured the Country Music Hall of Fame and historic RCA Studio B. I got chills hearing the music and it's history there. Supper at the historic Wildhorse Saloon. I even tried my hand at some line dancing. Stopped at the Johnny Cash museum cafe on our way back to the hotel. There was a songwriters showcase. Fun to listen. Finished out our day with a swim.
Tomorrow Grand Ole Opry and also hopefully meeting up with some more blog friends InRL. I am excited that the retreat is here which is allowing for some meet ups. But a tad bummed I won't be able to be at the retreat.
But also so glad that it is here and many will be able to be there.
*My five minutes ended here!! I had a lot to say this week!!
