Savannah, Georgia

It has been a long while since my last post - how sad. Nathan and I just returned from an amazing weekend in Savannah, Georgia. We arrived Friday evening in time for a wonderful dinner at River House Seafood, located directly on the Savannah River. We were picked up after our dinner for a private carriage ride, where we learned all about Savannah history. We stayed at the Hamilton-Turner Inn on Lafeyette Square. The house was gorgeous - the first in Savannah to get electricity! Saturday we were greeted with an amazing breakfast of Georgia Peach French Toast and then set off to explore the shops. We were able to go by Paula Dean's Lady and Sons, although the line was much too long to waste our only full day standing around. But it was neat to see regardless. We spent the afternoon enjoying the weather out in Lafeyette square, Nathan enjoying a cigar and me catching up on my most recent book. Saturday night we went to our dear friends Jamie & Josh's wedding at another local mansion. It was great wedding with an open bar, which always makes things a little bit more enjoyable. :) Sadly we had to return on Sunday, but we are already planning our return!

So if you are looking for a great weekend getaway, we highly recommend visiting Savannah, GA. You can check out pictures of our stay here
