Lobby, Peabody Hotel, Memphis
"The Mississippi Delta begins in the lobby of The Peabody Hotel and ends on Catfish Row in Vicksburg. The Peabody is the Paris Ritz, the Cairo Shepherd's, the London Savoy of this section. If you stand near its fountain in the middle of the lobby... ultimately you will see everybody who is anybody in the Delta..." -- Author/Historian David Cohn, 1935.
I am a happily married mother of two sons. I enjoy spending time and traveling with family and friends, and all that goes into creating a happy home...cooking, gardening, decorating, sewing, and finding delight in the next surprise that life brings my way.
"Memphis ain't a bad town. For them that like city life." ~William Faulkner
"I sang in church growing up. Memphis is the blues capital of the world, we like to say. The many sounds of Memphis shaped my early musical career and continue to be an inspiration to this day." ~Justin Timberlake
