I'm in Love...

June 23, 2014
I haven't even been living near Savannah for a full week and I already know that I'm in love.  I've been in enamored since I initially laid eyes on this city a few years ago when I visited it for the first time. Sometimes you just know!  The city has a bunch of eclectic people, there are plenty of attractions, and it's full of unique, locally owned restaurants and shops.  The historic downtown has so many gorgeous buildings that are well maintained.  The layout of Savannah is that of a grid, so there are plenty of aesthetically pleasing squares in between many of the streets.  Plus, there is always excitement in the air, as tourists come from all over the world to see the city!

I've gone into the downtown three times so far this week, and I can't wait to go back and explore some more.  It's fun just to stroll around and check out the shops or to people watch.  One day we checked out Civvies, which sells recycled clothing.  We also stopped at the Paris Market, a store that carries everything from stationery to decorative items for the home to gifts for babies.  On Saturday, my friend Everett and I walked around town, stopped and got some iced mochas, and then went down to River Street.  We stopped at Savannah Bee Company, which sells all sorts of honey and bath and body products made with honey.  There is even a full honey bar so customers can try the different flavors available.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the weekend:








This week I also hung out with my roommates...We walked around a lake for some exercise, cooked a dinner of fish tacos and potato salad together, stopped for some fro-yo, went swimming at Everett's aunt's pool, and attended a fish fry.  

Everything would be great if the schools around here would start posting jobs I could apply to so that I know I'm able to stay!

Have you ever gone to Savannah?  What city would you live in if you could live anywhere?

    1. You should definitely try to if you get the chance!! Maybe just not in the summer because it's sweltering, but it would be nice in the other 3 seasons!

    1. That's how I felt, and then I moved here! It did help that my best friend is from here and offered to let me move in.

    1. Yes, I told my friend that I wanted to try it out the last time we visited a few years ago, but he told me his family was having a get together and they were all bringing typical Southern dishes. Now that I live here, I would like to eventually have a meal there.
