Southern drawls and sweet tea

Hey there, stranger!

I can't say that I'm back on for good but I thought it was time to give an update on our new "adventure", a whole 6 (ish) hours away from the GREAT state of AL (no..not an ounce of sarcasm there).  We said so long to sweet home Alabama and headed on to the peachy state of Georgia, Savannah to be right on the money.  Pretty cool place!  We had been here as tourists nearly 6 years ago, never thinking we'd end up living we're pretty pumped.  We arrived at the very beginning of August and are slowly working our ways at becoming "locals".  We live around 10 miles from the center of downtown..making it the perfect medium and lots of things to do (thank the LAWD, I don't know how much longer we couldn't tolerated a trip to Target as a "night out").  

My mom and David visited this past Labor Day weekend, the first time in nearly 2 years since I've seen her and the first time I'm seeing her in the U.S. in 5 years (the other times were in Korea and weird but cool).  Here are a few shots of our time together...Charleston was super cute but Savannah has and always will be #1 in my book.

In Charleston, the super cute "Rainbow Row".  There's a lot of historical information about this street...but I'll have to refer you to my husband because I was more interested in taking pictures, I mean, come's not like I wouldn't retained it anyways.

The Angel oak.  Named after a family...but I thought the name was very fitting for how magical this tree was.

Nothin' like sum crab cakes 'nd sum greyns! (insert Southern accent or it's just embarrassing)

Now entering Savannah...perhaps one of my most favorite things about this city is their romantic Spanish moss oak trees and their open container policy.  I mean, who wouldn't enjoy a nice drink as they stroll through history?  Awesomeness.

The rugged, yet pretty Tybee Island.

Let's all take a moment and give thanks for our seafood to no longer be staring back at us.....

Huzzah!!!  That's what I'm talkin' bout!

Ahh, Forsyth Park.  Breathtaking in person.

Andddd for the Grand Finale.....the moment you've all been waiting for (totally kidding).

Love from us to you from Savannah!

(there are many more pictures but I have to preserve them!)
