Savannah Memories

Well, we made it there...
We weren't sure we would considering all the fevers and close calls, but we did.
And it was perfect. 3 days of stress-free, no-rush quality time.
I had never been to Savannah (I'm more of a New York City kinda girl), but I fell in love with the place. I now understand all the talk of Southern Hospitality...these were the nicest people I've ever met! Our hotel was right on the river and was just the right mix of Savannah Old and Eclectic Chic. Check out the lobby!

We enjoyed plenty of upscale martinis (Real men drink Sour Apple Martinis!)...


And the homes in the Historic District were absolutely lovely...

(The Mercer House from Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil)

The trees were my most favorite part. They were hauntingly romantic.

We came home to more drama (I'd share but I'm tired of hearing myself complain and I will probably reflect on it all in a future post), but amidst all the craziness we've had around here, we had 3 perfect blissful days together.


  1. Oh, it sounds absolutely beautiful....aren't the trees well as everything else! Glad you had a great time :)

    Merry merry Christmas to you Liz, thank you so much for being such a lovely follower....may your Christmas wishes come true!

    Simone :)

    PS Love the Martini two are a really cute couple, you look gorgeous!

  2. I'm soooo glad you had a good time (although I might be bit green with envy - always wanted to go to Savannah...)! You guys look very happy!

  3. That looks like a great time. :0) Glad you were able to get away and have a good time. Merry Christmas!

  4. What, southern hospitality doesn't apply in Florida?

    Beautiful sights, beautiful couple. Looks perfect.

    Merry Christmas!

  5. I love Savannah! You look like you had a great time.

    Merry Christmas!!!

  6. What a great little getaway!

    Too funny--when I saw the first picture I thought, did she run into Faith Hill and Keith Urban?? Honest!

  7. Yes - Faith Hill and Keith Urban! Love it!

    So happy to hear that you guys enjoyed such a nice time. I hope these memories are giving you a little extra warmth in your heart this holiday.
