Before I start this post thank you to everyone who left me such kind thoughts and heart felt wishes you are all amazing people and the reason I love to blog! Thank you so much for your care and support! I have missed you and I can’t wait to get back in the swing of things!
My mom and I went to Savannah and Charleston right when I started winter break and it was awesome! We spent two days in each city and even though it rained or was cloudy 99% of the time we still loved it, neither of us had been before. Savannah had the most beautiful old homes in the historic district as did Charleston although most not as old because they were destroyed in the Civil War, where as Savannah wasn’t. Thank you Sherman!
In Savannah we ate at Paula Deen’s restaurant The Lady and Son’s, and I don’t want to disappoint anyone but it wasn’t that great. Apparently it has become very touristy and the food reflected that :( bummer. We also took a historic inn tour of bed and breakfasts in restored historic homes that had decorated for the holidays. Which was AWESOME! You all would have loved it I would have taken pictures but we were asked not to. We also visited Hilton Head Island just to say we’ve been there and walked on the beach.
In Charleston we visited Fort Sumter which I enjoyed because I love history. We also visited a plantation, Middleton Place, which all that was left was a guest house but the gardens are beautiful and one of the oldest in America. All in all it was a great trip and I love the south! I wish I could own one of the beautiful old homes there with the amazing gardens and huge mossy oak trees, I almost died of joy. The neatest part about Savannah was the beautiful little squares, 22 in all, situated throughout the city every couple of blocks that had been there since the colony was established in the 1700s. They are beautiful and I got pictures of a few. Ok time to share pictures!

The iron bird candle holder I already owned but I added a pumpkin candle to it and the autumn wreath on the bottom. Which came from Target's dollar section! But was actually $2.50... harrumph...why do they do that? lol So did the pumpkins! They were cute though and I don't think $2.50 is a bad price.
If you all love candles Bath and Body Works was having an amazing sale, practically buy one get one free on the yummy big Slatkin & Co. candles. Plus they have all his neat autumn scents and are launching their Christmas stuff too and giving out great coupons! I hope you are all well! All the best!
