Maybe It Was Memphis

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Memphis Travel. All opinions are 100% mine.

One of the country music playlists that I created on my iPod is called "Don't Mention Memphis," based on the Tim McGraw song. That playlist includes other gems like Trisha Yearwood's "Wrong Side of Memphis," Marc Cohn's "Walking in Memphis," and "Maybe It Was Memphis" by Pam Tillis. Since Memphis is featured prominently in so many of my favorite songs, I was lucky to have the chance to travel there on business almost fifteen years ago, when I was still single, working for The Firm, and, of course, London and Maddie weren't even twinkles in my eye.

Back then, it wasn't easy to find a Memphis-savvy travel guide, but I did know enough to stay at the Peabody Hotel and show up on time to see the famous Peabody Ducks, get the blues on Beale Street, and enjoy some serious Memphis BBQ ribs. Unfortunately, my client kept me so busy with due diligence work that I never had the chance to visit Elvis at Graceland.

Flash forward fifteen years to today, when London and Maddie at age 9 and 8 are just about the right age to enjoy a trip to Memphis, and I'm ready to enter to win a trip package. The family package includes accomodations at the Madison Hotel, a carriage ride, admission to the Memphis Zoo, the Pink Palace, and dinner for four at Rendezvous.

Wish me luck... maybe this is my chance to go back and visit Graceland.
