Celebrating with a Birthday Gathering on the Lake

I spent this past Friday evening with a great group of people celebrating the birthday of my beautiful friend Kim.  This is her new house on Lake Chickamauga that she shares with her husband, daughter and two beautiful dogs, Jake and Zeus. It is a truly stunning masterpiece!

I hope you enjoy the tour, with the house all decked out in Christmas finery.  She has a beautiful family and an equally beautiful home.
