Once upon a time, a Kansas boy met a Kentucky girl. They fell in love and decided to get married where God brought them together, in Memphis, TN. So Nate and I drove 8 hours southeast for the celebration. (Congrats Chris and Kate!) We did not have much time to sight-see, so we had to pick between Graceland and the National Civil Rights Museum. Not really two things to compare, but Civil Rights won out, and it was an amazing place. I highly recommend it if your in the area. Also, we finally know what that one line in the Mark Cohn/ Bruce Springsteen song means when he says, "Walking in Memphis. Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale." It's a street! With lots of bars, and I didn't really like it, but lots of other people did. The pictures here a mash of Memphis sights, wedding snapshots, and the Civil Rights Museum (The Lorriane Motel sign, the balcony with the wreath, and the classic cars are photos of where MLK was shot and killed April 4, 1968 in front of room 306.)
