A month after her affair with Gen. David Petraeus became public and led to the four-star general's resignation as head of the CIA, Paula Broadwell is trying to mend her relationship with her radiologist husband, Scott.
The couple were spotted this week having lunch on the patio at 300 East, a popular restaurant in the Dilworth area of Charlotte, North Carolina. Though many other diners appeared to recognize the couple, the Broadwells, says an onlooker, seemed "relaxed and happy."
"They're trying to go on with their lives," says a source close to Broadwell, adding that it was Scott who suggested he and his wife go out to lunch since he was going to be working an evening shift. "Paula continues to be very grateful that Scott has been so supportive."

When Paula Broadwell and her husband Scott returned to their North Carolina home with their two sons on Sunday from Washington, D.C., 25 friends and neighbors gathered to offer their support.
But for the married Broadwell, 40, who was both biographer and mistress to former Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus, 60, the revelation of the affair and subsequent attention has made her emotional.
"She's been devastated by this," Paula Broadwell's brother, Stephen Kranz, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview. "She is filled with guilt and shame for what she's done and she's incredibly sorry for the pain she's caused her husband, her family, Petraseus's family. She accepts responsibility for her actions and knows she made a mistake."
