We went to Chattanooga to spend the Easter weekend with Chase's family and we had a very nice visit.
On day two we went to Chattanooga Arboretum to go by car through the Reflection Riding and there were absolutely gorgeous sights with all the spring flowers and trees in full bloom! We had intended to go up to one of our other fave places on Raccoon mountain also, but car trouble stopped us. We ended up having our picnic at the parking lot of a gas station while waiting for the tow truck! It was fun though and the car got fixed on Monday so we could return safely back to Nashville. No charge since it was a recall issue. What a Blessing!

From time to time, The Hall arranges something special for the members. This time the museum had their exhibits open for members only for two hours to show the new galleries especially. Did I enjoy it? You bet I did! It was very peaceful to walk around and look at everything I wanted at my own pace. I got lost in the Bakersfield exhibition to the point I lost track of time and almost did not see the new galleries on the second floor, but I did see them! They were amazing and I will surely come back and explore more since they have so much to offer in form of interactivity. If you are a first time visitor and very interested in country music history (like me!), I would recommend you set aside 2-3 hours to be able to enjoy as much as possible of the exhibitions. You could walk through it at a brisk pace in about 15 minutes, but that would definitely defeat the whole purpose of enjoying it ;-)
|The new Glen Campbell exhibition on the third floor.|
|The entrance to the new ACM Gallery and Dinah and Fred Gretsch Gallery. Of course I wouldn't show more, You'll have to see it for yourself :-)|
I'll write a post about some things in the Bakersfield exhibition some other time, I promise ...
Btw, the museum has a new design on their website www.countrymusichalloffame.org

I know that I am Blessed ... five years with someone that really cares about me. We have had our ups and downs, like everyone else, but we've learned and moved on ... and grown closer in companionship and respect. And love. Celebrating our fifth anniversary is a blast! We've done special things for one another the entire weekend. We have eaten our favorite food (me pasta of course!) and I gave him a back massage when he least expected it. Last night we went to catch a movie. Today I've planned a surprise and he bought me a beautiful flower arrangement ... Happy Fifth Anniversary to us!
