The Farmer And The Chef

On Thursday evening we attended The Farmer & The Chef to benefit the hungry.

We enjoyed a great evening out while helping feed the hungry in Northeast Tennessee during Second Harvest Food Bank’s annual The Farmer & the Chef event. It's where local farmers and chefs come together to create a unique culinary experience using available seasonal products to prepare their signature dishes.

Proceeds from this major fundraiser for Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee go directly to help feed the individuals and families in our region that will go hungry due to lack of access to food. At the same time, this event helps establish sustainable relationships between local farmers and chefs which are vital to the well-being of our community.

Head Chef James Allen from our own Blackthorn Club is about to become a first time Dad today. Congratulations!

The band played so many great songs!

There was a great turn out and the terrace at the Blackthorn Club was decorated so beautifully.

This is my beautiful friend Nita. It's always great to see her!

This is my stunning friend Victoria. I always get a little awestruck around her. She could so easily be a model. Hard to believe she is a grandmother!

This is my very stylish friend Kathy. She always brings a smile to my face each time I see her.

These fabulous legs and shoes belong to Danielle Hahne account manager and photographer for VIP Seen Tri-Cities magazine. She always wears the most over top shoes of anyone I know.

I wore a cobalt blue jacket from Coldwater Creek (no longer in business) with Peck & Peck white pants from Stein Mart. The white tank top and necklace are from Chico's. The shoes are from Belk and the bag is from a consignment store. 

Thank you for joining me on this journey through midlife and beyond. 
The second fifty years are the best!

You always look perfectly dressed for each and every occasion. I would love to read about how you and Mr. Mickey met - I'm sure it's a great "love story". So glad I found your blog.

Very pretty the shoes. You have such lovely friends. Were you tempted by the platform shoes? The whole event was a win-win for everyone. It's great when restaurants use local products.

The jacket, although boxy, is flattering on you, especially the color. The 3/4 length sleeves are very appropriate - not too covered up!

Love your longer hair style, it has real movement.

You look so pretty ... the shorter jacket is very flattering as is the color blue! ~Lindy D.
