Down South

Hey y’alllllll, I’m reporting live from the South!

Savannah is lovely and I’m thoroughly enjoying soaking up some family time with my parents. Here’s a photographic tour of my day for you to enjoy—

And tonight, we are going to a fish fry! Bring.it.ON. ๐Ÿ™‚
I was soooooooo thankful to be able to sleep in till 10:30 this morning (of course it felt like 7:30!) and then ate some quick yogurt and granola before showering and heading out with my parents. Above you saw a photo of the most amazing corn chowder with crab that I had for lunch and ricotta fig gelato….perfect on this hot sunny afternoon.
I’m off to catch up on some emails and then get ready for this evening. See you later!

    Love the photos!

    The one of the Girl Scouts especially made me smile, my sister once went on the ‘pilgrimage’ trip to Savannah to see the historical Juliet Gordon Low / Girl Scout sites. She had a great time!

    Have a fantastic weekend!

    I was just in Savannah!!!

    My girlfriend owns a Consignment shop there on Broughton – its at the end next to Marc Jacobs & the Pawn shop.

    loved Lady & Sons – sunday buffet was soooooooooo goooooooood.

    sweet melissa pizza is amazing – at least I think thats the name, it has “sweet” in it – they put herbs on the bottom of their crust – genius!

    wet willies is worth a trip too!!!

    WHERE IS YOUR DRESS FROM? SUPER CUTE

    Have a wonderful time visiting the folks in their new town. Looks quaint and lovely. My Georgian friend has told me many delightful things about Savannah.
