I first met this beautiful gal in in 1986, when I joined the cast of Days of Our Lives, and she was (and still is) the doll baby of the universe. She was only 18, but had already been on the show for a year.
About 10 years ago, Missy and her adorable husband, Scott, decided to leave the rat race of Southern California and head to Nashville, Tenn. Scott, who had been doing soaps for quite a while, is also an amazing singer/song writer … who had evidently always wanted to be a farmer. Nashville was a great fit.
A few years ago, they bought some acreage on the top of a hill and built an amazing “gothic farmhouse.” Ever since Missy shared her stories and photos of the build, I have been dying to go for a vist. This past weekend my dream came true, as NBC hosted an event in Nashville and asked a group of us to go. We had the best time!
For starters it is such a treat for us to get out and meet the fans of the show … we work in a big warehouse and don’t see anyone, so it is so nice to get out for a meet and greet! Then, the bonus was Missy took me on a fabulous tour of Nashville and surrounding towns, all the way up to the incredible “homestead” she and her beautiful family have created. They are truly the sweetest, most welcoming people … I didn’t want to leave.
I can see why people are moving there in droves. It is so lush and beautiful with so many hip neighborhood … if I wasn’t such an ocean lover I might be tempted. Anyway, here is a smidge of our little adventure!
