Thank you Mr. Stowe

The kids just had their last piano lesson with Mr. Stowe. Really sad to say goodbye to a teacher that has had a wonderful influence in their lives both in music and life

This sleepyhead...
She fought me tooth and nail for over 2 hours to fall asleep at nap time. I finally crawled into bed with her and pulled her close. She was out within 5 minutes. A great reminder that sometimes when my kids push away they need me to pull them in and hold them secure with patience and loving understanding.

This month has been a whirlwind of upheaval with traveling, visitors and trying to squeeze in all of the Nashville that we can possible manage.  My heart is heavy.

Belmont Mansion

The final stop in my book tour of Nashville (for now- the Carnton plantation books with be released next year) The Belmont Mansion.  Adelecia Acklan was one of the wealthiest women of her time and her estate dripped in elegance and wealth.  It was such a treat to walk the home that I have read so much about in my historical fiction series.  It was beautiful.


Love spending time with this handsome guy.
