On June 1st, my blog friend Ashley and her mom Debbie came to Tupelo for the Elvis Presley festival. Ashley had told me about her mom being a big Elvis fan, but had never been to his birthplace. I looked up some information for her and they decided to come to my town for the weekend. As it got closer, Ashley and I made plans to meet up for dinner one night while they were here. So on Friday night, I met them at a local Mexican place. I didn't know much about her mom and I was a little nervous. There wasn't a need for nerves. I loved spending the next 5 hours talking and getting to know them. Ashley and I have a lot in common. Much more than I even could imagine. And Debbie is a hoot! They are both so fun. I immediately loved both of them and honestly was sad that our night had to end. After all, the restaurant was closed and we were standing in the parking lot. HA! They spent Saturday touring around Tupelo. Making all the important stops such as the birthplace of the king. When they were on their way to dinner, Ashley text me and invited me along. I said of course. We ended up talking until that restaurant closed down for the night as well. I enjoyed EVERY single moment that I was able to share with these two incredible women. Ashley and I even convinced her mom to start a blog. So go visit Debbie. I absolutely can't wait for the next time that we are able to get together. Maybe I should take a road trip to AR.
