weekend getaway // savannah, ga // part i

so these weekend getaway posts are a bit late... but they are worth blogging about so here they are - better late than never! 

traveling is something that i never seem to get tired of. i'm glad for that because 2014 is looking like a year of big travel! from kicking off the new year in nashville to a (now not so recent!) trip to savannah, georgia and a very exciting trip to paris i couldn't be happier that this is how i'm spending my time of late.

my trip to savannah was to celebrate a dear friends, erins, 30th birthday. i have to give erin a lot of credit because she planned quite the weekend for about twenty of her closest friends. from having wine and cheese waiting at the house upon our arrival, to a private dinner at a wine shop, and a fun bbq at the house it seems she thought of everything! in addition to that, she generously paid for everyones accommodations. 

when we arrived on thursday night we felt like we were on the real world as we ran through the house.. which was huge! i'm not sure if the pictures do it any justice but the decor and furnishings were really rustic and unique. it felt like one of those hgtv dream homes! 
the next morning we kicked the day off with brunch at clary's cafe.  i decided on the eggs benedict and they were amazing! i also ordered the grits (since i seem to love them these days) but they were a bit disappointing to be honest. luckily the trip was filled with more opportunities to try my new favorite dish! 
following breakfast most of the girls went to the spa but my friend liz and i decided to explore the town. i really enjoyed how walkable the city was and how quaint each street and square felt. once we felt like we had explored enough (although i'm not sure if that's ever possible in a new place) we decided to go on a run which is another great way to see the sites!
that evening, erin organized a great southern bbq feast from wiley's that was delivered right to our house! this meal will go down as the best brisket i have ever had. after dinner we went out on the town to check out the savannah night life!
more on savannah to come!
