We are so excited to share our Tennessee commercial with you all. This is the long version that is not shown on network television. The shorter TV versions have already been airing nationwide and it’s been fun getting notes from some of you who have seen them. And, Rolling Stone wrote it up this morning, which is pretty freaking cool!

For more information about our family trip, and to see the national television commercials, you can visit the TNVacation/Bleubird page, and you can visit the lovely Dolly Parton’s site right here. I will share more photos from our trip/experience next week! xx

    That was a stunning display to say the least. Soon I’ll be picking up roots in California and moving my family of five to Georgia. I can’t wait to explore all that the south has to offer.
