A very special family reunion!

Making Memories...

Recently my husband and I attended his Aunt Bernie's 90th birthday celebration. It was not only an opportunity to honor a wonderfully spirited lady but a chance to reconnect with my husband's family.  Aunt Bernie's two daughters Mary Ann and Betty Lou hosted this wonderful event at Keith Young's Steakhouse in Madisonville, LA.  It is a quiet sleepy town that has won my heart for it's hometown feel and simplicity.   

We visited with many family members and friends as they toasted Aunt Bernie and recalled all the childhood memories...some hilarious but most brought tears to my eyes from stories of the "old days". 

We feasted on steak, chicken and husband and I each chose something different, I the Mahi-Mahi and he chose the steak. Both dishes were out of this world and the restaurant is as full of charm as the city where it is located.

Check it out and if you are in the area be sure to visit!

Us with Aunt Bernie

Great Family Time+Great Food=Happy Times!
