from crumbling plantations to trendy art galleries, I felt it was best to just present you our photo journey over the last few days.

    I love reading about your trips home because this is my home, too! I recently took my Mom to lunch at Palmetto Bluff and the views were fantastic. Did you happen to see the little cemetery along the water that was just for their DOGS?! It was such a fun find, and one we both talk about a lot. There are so many fun places to explore in the area, and I just love the Lowcountry.

    Hi Jenna! Your contact page doesn’t have any contact info on it. 🙂 So, instead I’m leaving an irrelevant to this post comment… How did you deal with the heartbreak of your last relationship ending? My 2.5 year relationship ended suddenly last night/this morning & I am at a loss.. Sorry if this is weird to ask you!

    We are all well… getting back into the swing of things with school, work, etc. Back to teaching full weeks of yoga, love my girls so much! Also have a little goal to eat a DIFFERENT breakfast every day this week. I might post pics on Friday of my experiment to see if I could do it! 😀

    Love the pic of you and your 2 favorite guys. XO

    I live in St Augustine but I just might make the 2 1/2 hour drive to Savannah this weekend, simply to have that tomato bisque and head back home. It looks blissful! Especially in this chillier-than-usual (come back Florida sunshine) weather! Thanks for sharing!

    Absoutely beautiful photos of the family and the charm of your new home city…makes me long to hop on a plane right now to visit Savannah! (Why have I never been there?!)

    I especially love the snapshot of you and your Dad – your resemblence and twin pensive expressions scream father and daughter. The photo taken when you turn to glance behind you while walking on the dock is so provocative, perhaps, frame-able?

    Thanks for sharing a taste of home, Jenna!
