Special 45th Birthday

Hi Friends, I had a wondeful birthday this year. My birthday was on a Friday and our long Thanskgiving weekend.  I had a nice week in Montreal and then a wonderful dinner out with my husband at the new StoneRiver Retaurant here in Cumberland.  Beautiful old Mansion along the water that has been transformed into a restaurant.  The owner is of German descent and her fiancee is wonderful Chef.  For the whole month of October they are celebrating Octoberfest and they have wonderful menu and live music everyweekend by the wonderful Diamonds.

Here are few pics from my birthday week and Thanksgiving:
