Spending time in Nashville with my sons has become imperative to maintaining my sanity – especially on their birthdays.
Every year they introduce me to something new that expands my horizons and gives me a new prospective on life. I am also propelled out of the ruts in the road in which I’ve been living.
This time we built memories we never would never have imagined.
A Bocce tournament, earning a dart board championship and sampling the smelliest fruit known to man were among our new experiences.
The Durian: That smelly fruit can best be described as having a succulent, creamy filling but smelling like stinky socks.
Braddock and I drove home from Nashville with one in the back seat. I’ll never be the same again.
The birthdays in our family are typically accompanied by memorable events – Katrina, the Nashville Flood, the Sunami. Thankfully this year was calm – oh except they introduced me to “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” If you don’t know what that is…Don’t ask.
