Our recent real estate transaction went south last week and I had the perfect "pick me up" - a weekend in Savannah for a family wedding. My mom, sister, grandmother and I rented an apartment on Jones Street right next door to the famous Mrs. Wilkes' Boarding House. We had read reviews about paranormal activity in the apartment but thankfully we had a pleasant, ghost-free weekend. And I realized that although I spent a lot of time in Savannah in college, I had never gone beyond River Street to see the real beauty of the city.

The shopping was amazing. My favorite store, One Fish Two Fish, was just doors down from our apartment. They had beautiful artwork by Bellamy Murphy. Once we find a house, I want this Oyster picture...

Next to One Fish Two Fish, is my all time favorite lighting store, Circa Lighting. I've been coveting the Bryant Chandelier for years and it was so great to browse their entire collection.

And no weekend in Southeast Georgia would be complete without a trip to my alma mater in Statesboro. My sister and I drove to Georgia Southern for lunch a Snookies and a stop at the ADPi house. What fun!

It was a quick weekend but a 5-hour flight with no kids is not so bad! And I hope to return to Savannah again soon.
