Our Ninth Wedding Anniversary

For our anniversary this year (April 4th) Jeff and I drove to upstate North Carolina for a few days. Mom and Berk kept Katie and Joe in order for us to have some much-appreciated Jeff-and-Jeni time! We stayed at the Buffalo Tavern Bed and Breakfast and visited the Blowing Rock. The force of the wind was incredible! We also wandered around downtown Boone and Blowing Rock. (Jan Karon's Mitford series is based somewhat on Blowing Rock, so I was interested to see what it was like. Apparently every September the town celebrates "Mitford Days" and Jan Karon makes an appearance.) We wanted to go to Grandfather Mountain, but the winds were too strong and it was closed. We did a lot of driving around looking, and ended up going to the Mast General Store, too. Overall, we had a fabulous time and ate constantly. Joe's Italian Kitchen and the Almond Joy coffee at Stickboy Bread Co. alone made the trip worthwhile! We also ate at a Japanese Hibachi place that was excellent.
