"I have an even deeper appreciation for Elvis now" both my Mum and Dad said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I agreed. My third time to Graceland and I loved it just as much. I was so happy to finally take my parents there. I grew up watching Elvis movies with my parents, especially my Mum. I remember her always saying she wanted to go to Graceland. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And here they are. I didn't realize how much my Dad liked him as well until we visited here, Sun Studio and Studio B in Nashville to follow his story. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's testament to his extraordinary spirit that over 40 years after his death, thousands of people visit Graceland every day. Have you been? Would you love to go?
