Gal's Weekend Spring 2013 - Savannah, Georgia. Funny things happened on the way to Savannah, including a trip through the bowels of Logan Airport with a funny man named Roscoe, a bag o' free booze from our flight attendant, and an unexpected layover in Atlanta. Followed by a massive hang-over.....but we got there and it was amazingly worth it.
The most haunted city in America is gorgeous. Filled with weeping willows covered in Spanish moss, old mansions steeped in history, a riverfront that lights up with life, and parks brimming with Southern hospitality and charm.
This book was the fifth wheel the whole trip. She came EVERYWHERE with us and for good reason - it's written by a local who has all of the IN's on restaurants, cafes, nightlife, and tourism. Thanks Meredith! (Find it here)
Not that we need a reason to travel, but this time there was a lot to celebrate - Whitney graduated with her MBA and was turning 30, Diana was celebrating her 31st year and mom's day, and we were all repairing our bruised hearts from the abuse our city had just endured. Perfect culmination.
Outfits of Savannah.....there were many and I certainly didn't capture them all. One thing is for sure - we all have our own style and personality which comes out in our clothing choices.
Diana - The Classic. We called her a Kennedy all weekend. Crisp, cool colors and clean lines. She takes basics and makes them cool.
Whitney - Lilly Pulitzer meets Vineyard Vines. Preppy with a nautical twist. Not afraid of a loud print, but also loves stars and stripes. Digs a sports watch with pretty much every outfit :o).
Tiffany - Casual Chic. Loves comfortable, easy breezy sundresses but shows her wild side by mixing in some animal...grrr baby!
Kiki (me) - Hard to define oneself, but I would say Bohemian with a Twist. Likes to challenge the trends, but also stay true to my pseudo-hippy roots.
Go to SAVANNAH! We didn't get to do half the things we wanted to, but here are some "not to miss" adventures....
The Bohemian Hotel - we spent a lot of time on their roof deck overlooking the city and drinking D&S's; Forsyth Park for people watching and walking; Gallery Espresso for the yummy coffee; SoHo South Cafe for ridiculous food and a cool, eclectic atmosphere; Red Clover for super sweet (affordable) clothes (D - they have an online store); Oliver Bentley's for homemade ginger doggie treats; and Bonaventure Cemetery to pretend you are in the Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil....
I read a quote once that I love - True Friendship isn't about who came first and who you've known the longest, it's about who came and never left.
I am thankful for Whit, Diana, and Tiff. I love you ladies like sistahs. Thanks for being in my life, always. Now....WHERE TO NEXT???
