Some HUGE News


Five years ago, on my very first trip to Graceland, this picture was taken. Well, I am beyond thrilled and honored to announce that this year, I have been asked to be the Official Elvis Week Blogger. You guys, this is a huge deal. Basically, during Elvis Week, I will be attending lots of fun events around Graceland and Memphis and hanging out with Elvis fans from all over the world. Then, I get to write about it for the Graceland blog. Can you say dream assignment?

Ok, now I'll bet you're wondering how I got this amazing opportunity. Well, it's actually a pretty funny story. A few years ago, Jeremy and I went to an Elvis Week event and happened to get our picture taken by a photographer. A few months ago, they used that picture on their website (click here to see it!). As it turns out, someone in the offices of Graceland recognized me as a Memphis blogger, so they reached out to me, we had a meeting and they offered me the most exciting job I have ever had.

So, be sure to follow along on the Graceland Blog to see what I'm up to during Elvis Week, and don't stop checking here, there will definitely be some new posts.

Elvis Week, I am ready for you and I cannnnnnot wait!!



PS. Here's the official announcement that was made on the Graceland blog.
