Woke up early at Jaymees and we were out by 10am grabbing a much needed cup of coffee at starbucks. Jaymees breathes a tall cup every morning and just isnt the same without one. ha. We headed back downtown and the light was super bright today but freezing cold. Oh the winter and its odd weathers. We went to the Hank Williams museum and talked to Jeff for awhile about the amazing story of the father of rock n roll music (disputed with Elvis, ?) or at least creating that modern wave to country (the good country!). Jeff was super nice and talked to us for awhile on America and his love of Montgomery and its comeback downtown. We then went over the Rosa Parks museum and then to museum of tolerance and civil rights memorial. You cant not shed a tear when you go here and see the amazing strength of of the civil rights pioneers and those who lost their lives sadly. This is truly an awe inspiring exhibit. Please go if you can. We then went and talked to Shirley over at the Martin Luther King jr.s parsonage museum. She told us amazing things and was just cute as a button. We achieved all of these things pretty early in the morning, went back to Jaymees house and packed up in her ride (she is being super awesome and driving mr. Hailey around Alabama this week) and headed off to Birmingham (after meeting her lovely photographer friend Josh, the world is full of photo Joshs). We made it into the Magic city and Pittsburgs sister right as the sun was setting on the lovely downtown building. Checked into a hotel and went to meet up with friend of a friend Clay at his restaurant Little Savannah and had a lovely meal. We then went for drinks and called it an early night so we could get up tomorrow and shoot up Birmingham!
