If you've followed me for a while, you probably realize that Dolly Parton ranks at the top of my list of favorite celebrities. I find great inspiration in her music, and her life story-one that is a true rags-to-riches tale.
So a few years back while thrift shopping in Waxhaw, North Carolina, I can't believe I had my peripheral vision turned off and didn't spy this behind-the-scenes print from the movie classic, 9 to 5. All youthful and starry eyed, Dolly is surrounded by her co-stars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda. What's more, it's signed! Thanks to my eagle-eyed shopping partner who bought it for a couple of bucks, sneaked it back to New York and offered it as a Christmas gift, this treasure now hangs in a place of honor on the step leading to my living room!
It's Monday, so back to work!
