We left Red Bay, Alabama early Saturday morning, September 7, and drove to Cumming, Georgia, where we will be staying at Twin Lakes RV Campground.  Our new campground is about 16 miles from our daughter, Lauren, and son in law, Chris, and we will assist as they celebrate the first year of her successful chiropractic practice in Suwanee, GA, Suwanee Spine and Wellness Center. 

This carries a lot of meaning to Dr. Millman
Getting ready to celebrate 1 year!

Happy 1 year, Suwanee Spine!
  My, my how time flies!  Many of you will remember one year ago we were in Atlanta for about a month to help Chris and Lauren get ready to open her chiropractic office.  We usually stay at Bald Ridge Corps Of Engineers (COE) Campground on beautiful Lake Lanier for 2 weeks, and then we move over to another of our favorites - Old Federal COE Campground in Flowery Branch, GA (also on Lake Lanier), for the next two weeks.  If you aren't familiar with federally-owned campgrounds, your visit may not be longer than 14 days (probably to keep people from setting up a residence in these beautiful facilities).  These COE campgrounds in Atlanta were built by the CCC and we consider them to be special, and look forward to returning every year to the northeast Atlanta area.  Unfortunately, these and other federal campgrounds are now closed after Labor Day as a result of federal budget cuts.

We were delighted to be invited to the Suwanee Spine and Wellness Center celebration as "guests" this time.  No getting up on scaffolding to paint murals (although there is some more painting to do I'm told).  No more contractors, permits, painting, moving heavy furniture, hanging pictures, or decorating the office.  After we left last year, Chris and Lauren continued to deal with loads of preparations (24/7), while we rolled on down the road to our next destination.   
This mural used to be a "baby changer" in the restroom!

This has been an intense year for them filled with lots and lots of blood, sweat and tears, and we are so happy to celebrate this first year milestone with them.  They have been blessed with a wonderful staff and team, and it looks like all those years of school and preparation has finally paid off.  We're already looking forward to the second anniversary next September!

 Dr. Lauren went out of her way to make the office look very festive for her patients who came in today.  There was even a trivia contest.

The catering, by Big Easy Catering in Atlanta, was healthy and delicious.  Every patient was  presented a gift from Suwanee Spine.

Have you ever heard of the Elf On The Shelf?  Well, this is Lily, who is almost like the Elf on the Shelf.  You never know where she's going to show up.  Yes, she does resemble Barbie in a weird kind of way.   But yesterday she was in Dr. Millman's office to say "Congratulations!  Let's have another celebration next year!"   By the way, she has perfect posture thanks to Dr. Millman and the Suwanee Spine and Wellness Center.  In our family of chiropractic daughters, gifts are often centered around skeletons... how appropriate!
