A Birthday Celebration in East Tennessee


It's really cold in East Tennessee, and the above photo proves it!  That's nothing compared to the day I was born when there was actually a blizzard!

Thankfully, there was no big snow this year for my birthday celebration, so everyone was able to get to the celebration sites easily.

Since my cousin Bruce's and my birthdays are just a few days apart, we got to celebrate together.  There are several other shared birthdays throughout the year in our family in which people celebrate together.  That probably holds true in your family, as well!

To begin the celebration, we all met at a local restaurant in Elizabethton, Tennessee, Dino's.  Dino's is a great place to dine, especially if you're fond of Italian cuisine, although they serve American food, as well.  Greg and I have never been there before, and the food was an absolute delight!

                               Greg and I are now big fans of Dino's Chicken Alfredo!

After Dino's, we all went to Mama's for dessert and gift-giving.

                                                 What can top cake and ice cream!

                                                        There were gifts galore...

                                                     ...including nostalgic ones!

Thanks again to my wonderful family members for all the great gifts.  I'm already looking forward to next year's celebration!  Can't wait to see what we'll do then!

Positive thoughts: Life is what you make it!  Find a reason every day to just celebrate!
Thanks for visiting!  Until next Sunday, Becky
