Savannah and Charleston

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!

Everyone I have been MIA because Taylor cheated on me and dumped me for her. 4 years down the drain, I have never been more blindsided in my life. This was the day after Halloween and as you can imagine I have just been coping... I just wanted everyone to know. And now the jerk is still with her but trying to get back with me! I can't believe men...ugh. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and sorry for the bad news but I wanted to share it. I'm sure some of you can relate. I miss you all and I miss blogging and when I feel better I am going to start again. Love Allison.
