Reuniting with a Neighbor

Ann Hughes Nolen lived across the street from me when we were children - from about the age of seven until we were both grown.  We had lost contact with each other but recently reconnected.  She came to spend the weekend with me.  Great fun!!!!  It was hard to believe we hadn't seen each other in over 20 years.

The Parthenon at Centennial Park

Ran into Elvis downtown.

At the Orchid
Thursday afternoon we toured Franklin and had a glass of wine at JJ's Wine Bar while we caught up with each other.  Friday we headed out to Centennial Park, went to downtown Nashville for lunch and the Orchid Bar to listen to music, and then to the Grand Ole Opry.  Saturday we spent the day at Fontenal touring Barbara Mandrell's house, walking the trail, and indulged in some shoe shopping on the way home.

 Sunday we spent the day on the Natchez Trace - gorgeous!!!  After our hike, we sat and read and enjoyed the perfect weather before heading to Franklin for the Ghost Tour.  Monday we went by the quilt shop and had lunch at Noshville Deli before Ann needed to catch her flight.  There were some great meals and lots of walking and talking included during the visit BUT we were both good and actually lost weight.  That was a first:)  Wonderful weekend!

It looks like you and Ann had a great time. Looks like I'll have to come back and see more things I missed when I was there.
