I am so excited this is the first year I will be able to go to the opening! I have been to Dollywood several time but never been able to make it to opening! I can't wait, my friend Jen Pierce and I are going and we are so excited. If anyone has any pointers let me know! I know it is a long shot but we really want to meet her! I am hoping to make this dream come true this year somehow some way! Everyone that has met her has said how awesome she is and how down to earth she is. I hope to get to find out! I love reading everyones stories and hope to be able to post one too of my meeting. I just hope that we can keep it together! I really don't want to do the ugly cry infront of her lol. I just love her so much! She has been a great inspiration to me and the one constant in my life. Her songs, movies and laughter have got me thru some tough times. Anyway, hoope to see some of you there!
