A glorious visit

From the MIM, here’s the Artists’s Gallery experience:


Celebrate music’s most influential artists.

In every time and place, there are musicians whose art deeply touches the lives of many. MIM’s Artist Gallery highlights these personalities with ever-changing exhibits that span sound, style, and era. Through generous partnerships, MIM features historic instruments owned, played, and loved by the musicians who have created a shared soundtrack to our lives for generations.

Nearly 40 displays showcase instruments and artifacts from some of the greatest musicians in the world. See and hear instruments played by icons such as Elvis Presley®, Tito Puente, the Carter Family and Johnny Cash, Roberta Flack, Glen Campbell, Joan Baez, Maroon 5, and many others.


Here are a few photos from my aunt’s visit:

What is your idea of a perfect house guest? What do you like to do when entertaining company?

  1. Be still my heart! I love every bit of your fabulous visit. Thank you for sharing with us. The photo of your parents makes me smile…but so does the sweet pic of your aunt and Olive. Adorable. 🥰

  2. I’m struck by how young your parents look in the picture. They look very happy. Interesting too about olive! I’m a firm believer that our pets are better judges of people than we are. Your aunt must be pretty awesome if Olive feels comfortable with her. 😊😊😊😊

  3. So great that your aunt can share memories with you. Beautiful wedding photo as well, I love old photos even if I have no idea who the people are 🙂

    Olive has a new friend 🙂 Clearly the visit went well for everyone!

    • I spent several days with my aunt in March when we spread my mom’s ashes at our riverfront property by Granite Falls. It’s so nice to have her in my life. I really need to make a point of getting together with her on a regular basis. She is Olive’s first friend 😊

  4. So fun! She sounds like a perfect house guest. So sweet about Olive. I’m glad you had such a great visit with your aunt, especially in this first year after your mom’s passing!
