Tennessee!

Lucky me I met up with Chris and Jennie Damman here in Tennessee for a quick break from the hope tour. It's been nice to be with family and enjoy a break from the day-to-day routine. We are staying with Jennie's cousin Amy and her family here in Franklin. Yesterday, we woke up with waffles and a trip to Starbucks...the red cups are back! and then went and toured the Carnton House which was used as a hospital during the battle of Franklin in the Civil War. The history was interesting and the house fascinating! I really enjoyed the tour and think it would be so fun to do a more expansive tour through the Civil War memorials/battlefields/houses/etc. It is so much more fun learning the history while seeing the sights. Last night after a run through town we went with Dan, Amy and Braxton to Sweet CeCe's a new frozen yogurt place in town. It was delicious...I went for the hershey kiss fudge and cookies and cream with strawberries, blueberries and brownie toppings! yum yum! (I'm scheming of opening my own in Greenlake when I get back! :) )

Today we plan on going into downtown Nashville and checking out some of the sights. I'm still waiting for my first Country singer celebrity sighting...preferably Keith Urban, Faith or Tim...we did see some pretty sweet mansions though belonging to one of the Rascal Flatts singers and Toby Mac (that's right...DC Talk).


Happy Halloween!
