I thoroughly enjoyed my long awaited 3-day weekend in Tennessee.  On Friday, Will and I drove to Chattanooga and spent the afternoon at the aquarium, undoubtedly one of my favorite tourist activities in any city.  

That night, we enjoyed a delicious meal at Alleia.  If anyone happens to be traveling to Chattanooga, you must visit this restaurant.  We entered through a inconspicuous oak door, and the interior of the restaurant was equally minimalistic with the exception of a large table covered in candle wax.  

  Since I was not able to attend Raleigh's PurpleStride, I was so thrilled when Will planned our trip around Chattanooga's PurpleStride.  At 9:30 Saturday morning, Will and I made our way to the opening ceremonies, where we were so glad to be joined by hundreds of hopeful and enthusiastic racers.  The event raised over $48,000 for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

We ended our trip with a ride on the Incline Railway.  The trolley took us to the top of Lookout Mountain and offered gorgeous views.  It was a wonderful way to end an amazing weekend and say goodbye to Fall.

  1. Thank you Will, for remembering Concetta's Dad and planning such a wonderful weekend in memory of him. Concetta, you look stunning in front of that wax table.
