Ninety-Seven Wonderful Months

Since George and I didn't meet until we were 59 years old, we need/needed alot of years to make up for lost time. Because of this, we celebrate NOT just anniversaries, but also our MONTH-aversaries. Since we got married on June 23, 2001, as of yesterday, we have been married for 97 fabulous months!!!!!

Usually to celebrate our month-aversaries, we go out to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. Yesterday was no exception!!!! (Of course, we also had to help blog friend PATTI celebrate her birthday!!) We drove to Cades Cove in the Smokies and visited our special friends, Judy and Charlie, who are camping up there this week.

After several hours of talking and catching up, George and I headed back to Maryville ---where we visited one of our favorite restaurants (Cafe UNO) to enjoy their delicious Chicago-style Pizza. We seldom eat pizza --so when we do, it it VERY special. All in all, it was a wonderful day----and we hope to celebrate MANY more Month-aversaries!!!!

The picture above was taken of us at Cafe UNO yesterday afternoon. More pictures are below.

This is about the 3rd time we have visited Judy and Charlie when they are camping. This year, I got so excited with my yakking and talking that I forgot to snap any pictures. So----I borrowed one from our visit in 2007---which is very similar to what it looked like yesterday!!!!!

We did stop at the entrance to the Cades Cove loop before leaving yesterday --and snapped a few pictures. We didn't have time to drive the loop this time --but I'm sure it won't be long 'til we come back to this gorgeous place.


When we got home, all of my birdies were there on the back deck ---singing "Happy Month-aversary" to us.. Aren't they sweet??????
