Savannah 2014

As you probably know (because I haven't stopped talking about it), our little family just came back from a trip to Savannah, Georgia. We stayed in a hundred year old home in the historic district along with my parents, brother, aunt, uncle, and cousins. (Fun Fact: John Cusak stayed there during the filming of Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil.) How could it not be an incredible time?!? The house was facing Washington Square, and was just a short walk to Bay Street, River Street, TONS of shops and restaurants! 
My brother signed up for an open mic at a classy place called "The Wormhole" on our first night there. He was phenomenal (click here for a video) and it was such a perfect way to kick off our trip. On Thursday we set out to explore the city and check out some of the shops on River Street. Friday we spent doing a trolley tour and wandering around Forsyth Park. Hubs and I missed out on the 4th of July fireworks but it was quite alright because our little angel was at the house snoozing so peacefully (I don't know how with all the noise). Saturday we had a delicious lunch at the Olde Pink House, and we went out that night with the crew while my mom stayed home with the babes. We had a little impromptu ghost hunt by using an EMF detector app on my phone. Does anyone know if that thing actually works...if so, my apartment is definitely haunted! Sunday we did some more exploring and shopping...and of course eating. My yummy Bolognese Sauce was a big hit, and by that point it was nice to stay in and have a nice home cooked meal in the house.
That's the house in the back
The city was so charming and full of history, we loved it. We found so many quaint little spots in just the short time we were there. So many wonderful memories were created in such a short span of time. We've all decided to make renting a house somewhere a yearly family tradition...there are a few ideas on the table for next year. Any recommendations?

  1. I went to Savannah last year and had a great time- it's so beautiful up there (: I love your photos! Did you eat at the famous ice cream place? (totally can't think of the name right now, but its only a short distance away from the Olde Pink House)
