Oh Savannah

I always forget that Savannah is pretty close to Hilton Head and each time I see the sign to Savannah, I say, "I really want to go there sometime." So imagine my surprise when my father-in-law announced that we were taking a day trip to Savannah. It turns out my mother-in-law has an affinity for Mrs. Wilke's Dining Room and this was the impetus for the trip. We met up with one of my father-in-law's cousins for lunch there and then he took us on a short little walking tour around Savannah.

I was immediately drawn to all the iron work that surrounds the historical homes and graces the doorways.
And trees. Some seriously gorgeous trees (complete with paparazzi). I want this one.
And super cute yarn shops, like Wild Fibre. It was a shocker to me when everyone decided to come along on what I thought was going to be a little jaunt on my own. That's ok, there's a first for everything and I do believe this was probably the first yarn shop my in-laws ever stepped foot in. Same goes for my husband. The Boss...well, she's pretty well versed in the area.In true southern style, they immediately invited me for their knit-in the next day, but alas, we wouldn't be around that long.

The Boss said, "just wake me when we get to Paula Deen's!" Maybe next year, darling, maybe next year.
All things Savannah aside, I love seersucker on babies. The only thing I love more than seersucker on babies is gingham seersucker on babies.

If you've ever been to Savannah, I'll gladly take your suggestions on what to do and see so I can actually plan accordingly next year!

I have always wanted to go to Savannah -- glad you got the chance to do so! The Boss is so beautiful.

I forget what the name of it is, but we went on a tour of the house that's featured in the book "Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil"...if you've read the book, it was neat to see & if you haven't, it was just a gorgeous home to tour!

I LOVED Savannah when we visited in November. Such a gorgeous city. I'm jealous you'll probably be heading there on yearly basis.

She is too cute! I love seersucker on babies too.
