We had such a restful time in Savannah. It was the first time we went somewhere by ourselves since Caleb was born. It was so amazing to truly have my mama radar take a break and not to have to worry about the kids. Thanks Mom and Dad!
We spent a day in Savannah and a day on Tybee Island where our bed and breakfast was. I just loved the European feel of Savannah. There were so many nooks and crannies to explore. The cobblestone and brick streets, amazing amount of wrought iron and huge live oak trees added to such a quaint feel to the town.
Getting such great time with my best friend was incredible. We talked, walked, threw frisbee, and road bikes on the beach. On tybee we climbed the lighthouse (thats one of the pictures below) We went down on river street in Savannah and took a tour of the city. We ate out a ton, which was fun. No cooking and no cleaning up! Plus we sat down without getting up for many many consecutive meals, something we never do at home. If you have kids, you know what I mean. We stayed at a great bed and breakfast almost on the beach. Lots of fun.
I found this cool little sun at a gift shop on the island and hung it in my window yesterday (which was my actual birthday, and I had a great day). I love it!
We also stopped at Ikea on the way to and from Savannah! We got a bunch of stuff. I got these little set of drawers for my sewing room and Bob’s dad put them together for me. We also got Alice a new dresser (the reason we stopped on the way back). Caleb enjoyed helping me put the drawers together last night. Now I’m thinking of making our current guest room into Alice’s room. I’m wanting to use this flower fabric in some way. Its fabric that I got from Bob’s Grandma’s cottage (her name is Florence). I think it was a table cloth. Well Alice’s middle name is Florence, after her great grandma, so that’s why I want to incorporate it. We’ll see what I come up with. Not sure if I want to paint the room or not yet. Not many plans in place yet. But it’d be nice to give Alice that room.
