    thank you for capturing the beauty of the south! so many people in the north have a narrow minded/skewed perception of it.
    love the candle picture.

    I’m gonna say it again, I want some desktop pics! I’ll also echo Heather up there, the doorknob pic is one of my favorites – so much detail in a tiny space! Other than that, I think I like the “bathing in the sunlight” window one best 🙂

    I love this post – especially the pictures of Charleston. I got to visit over the summer and had lunch at Five Loaves Cafe per a previous recommendation of yours. My boyfriend and I just loved it! We also stopped at Sugar Bakeshop on our walk back to King Street and even went to Folly Beach before heading home. Such a beautiful place!

    Ironic that you posted this right now…..I’m currently about 6000 miles away from my little island. I’m in Charleston for a few days and then off to Savannah! We ate at Basil last night thanks to your blog post back in May 09. It was awesome!!

    Wow! I am an uprooted Middle GA Southern Girl living on the West coast, too. You made me homesick for a few minutes. I could smell Savannah with the first picture. Old Bay Seasoning and Pecan Pralines all mixed together.

    Thank you for such a wonderful photo post! It brought me right back to my many recent visits to Charleston and to Savannah! I loved Charleston, and am very familiar with so many of your places, as my brother lived right off of King Street a few years ago! Great memories and wonderful inspiration!

    OOOH I am loving your traveling to Savannah. My husband and I were just there in the beginning of September. I am so bummed I didn’t know about that bakery before we went. But we did go to the Pink House and it was amazing!!!! And I also saw you got that BLT “salad”. When we went they sadi it was just featured in the top 10 foods to eat on the Food Network. What did you think of it because it rocked my world and I am still thinking drolling over it. And the mason jar with the cheese sticks……mmmmm. Really liking this posts.
