savannah, georgia

I can't believe that I haven't had the chance to tell Y'ALL about Savannah.
 Loved. it.
Since we were so close to Savannah, we decided to make a day trip
down to visit since neither of us had ever been.
So glad we did.


It was a kid free day.
We took our time roaming around the streets of Savannah
I was ooohing and aahhhhing over the cobblestone streets
and big trees that were draped with Spanish moss
everywhere you looked.


We stopped and took pictures (of each other)
here and there. We ate shrimp and drank salty margaritas.
I munched on pralines as we window shopped and watched
the huge barge ships pass by along the riverfront.
We even took a horse and buggie tour after
(the margarita made me a little tipsy)
AND
my feet started getting a little sore.
I had to stop and take a break.


My sandals were not really walking tour-friendly.
(But they matched my dress)
We stopped here for a pic or two
until I got attacked by mosquitoes.


Oh, sweet hot summer in the South.
You haven't changed a bit.
Heat, humidity and mosquitoes.
Typical August.
The horse and buggy tour was the perfect way
to rest my weary feet
to hear and see all the sweet (tragic) history of Savannah in one fell swoop.


I especially loved the old churches
and unexpected courtyards
that we happened upon along the way.


We even saw J.Lo leaving the American Idol auditions!!
Ask me if either of us got a pic.
Nope. Sorry.
(But she looks super golden and shimmery in real life too.)
It was a wonderful day of walking aimlessly, holding hands
with the one I love
in a sweet, southern city.
We loved you, Savannah
and can't wait to visit again.
Maybe for a long weekend next time.

I know I have been such a bad commenter lately. I promise I have read every post you have written, I just haven't had a chance to comment. :(

Savannah is gorgeous, it must have been a lovely day sans children.

And no picture of JLo? Did you freeze-up or what?! :D
