Posted by Picasa I can't even comprehend the man-hours it takes to build, maintain, and decorate this place. RaNae told me she came to Nashville on a layover and had time to tour the hotel. It was one of the highlights of her flying days. I felt an extra boost of love for her when I called and talked to her, while I stood on a beautiful walkway above hidden gnomes, about the now-shared experience.

Walking around the hotel was like walking into a fairy land! We passed the Vanderbilt football team as we entered (they played Boston 2 days later and won). I thought we would walk around the 2-level room and be done, but every time we walked through a doorway, we viewed a new atrium full of exotic plants, waterfalls, and Christmas visionary delights! The experience was enhanced by sharing it with people I love.
