Visit to Tennessee

We leave Tennessee tomorrow but I just had to do a quick post from the hotel. I met Betsy, George and Leedra today for lunch today at Cracker Barrel!


Here's a beautiful shot of Chattanooga!





When Greg and I walked up - we saw Betsy & George's smiling faces on the Cracker Barrel porch. You can already tell what a nice and happy couple they are! (I could see Betsy's smiling face a mile away!)




Leedra was a little late (ha! I had to get that in Leedra!) and we immediately had to whip out our cameras to start taking photos of each other! (Greg is a little more camera shy!)





Betsy, Leedra and I have one thing in common for sure - we LOVE TO TALK!! Poor George and Greg - they could barely get a word in edgewise! I think we only came up for air once.


I have a few more photos to post when I get home. But I have to mention the lovely gifts that I received from my friends - beautiful iris plants from Leedra and a beautiful waterfall photo from Betsy and George. It was a wonderful time and I was sad to leave - so glad to have met these 3 kind blogger friends in person!

Such kind comments....you didn't say Leedra wouldn't shut up! Hope you will think of me often when the Siberian Iris bloom every spring.

I LOVE Cracker Barrel for breakfast! So fun that you got to meet some blogging friends. I am only a couple of hours from where you visited and am sad that we didn't get to meet. You will have to travel a little further south next time to Asheville!
Hugs,
