Greg and I had a wonderful two-day fall celebration a few days ago when we went to East Tennessee to celebrate Thanksgiving with some of our family.
When we got to our destination, Jonesborough, Tennessee, it was time for supper, so we asked our B&B host to recommend somewhere to eat, and he suggested a new restaurant in town, "The Black Olive." We were so glad he did since the food was delicious!

After our meal, we went to the "Blair-Moore House" in historic downtown Jonesborough where we were spending the night.
This B&B has been highly rated by "Southern Living" magazine, and there are several other accolades, as well. Greg and I will have to agree, this is one of the best places that we've ever stayed!
There's even an excellent short "PBS" documentary on "Facebook" about "Blair-Moore House" which tells the history, etc. of the house that you can access from the "Blair-Moore House" website. (See website address below.)
The innkeepers renovated and beautifully decorated the house themselves.
Everything is so authentic to the period.
Our beautiful room even had a canopy bed which was a first for Greg and me.
There were even scrumptious chocolates by our bedside. They were handmade in Jonesborough by "Earth & Sky Confections."
Speaking of food, the next morning's gourmet breakfast was also a special treat-
The fresh fruit with dip was terrific, as was the French toast, bacon, potatoes, and more.

After breakfast, Tami Moore, one of the inn keepers who also cooked our wonderful breakfast, showed us some of the pieces her talented husband, Jack, had made for the house. He even has his own workshop on the grounds where he makes his quality wood pieces.
she makes lovely jewelry to sell.

While our stay there was a wonderful experience, it was time to move on to our next destination...
Betty's, for a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner!
We all pitched in and brought some of our favorite things for the meal.

We all had a wonderful time together, and we're planning our next get-together for December.
