It's amazing when my 5-year-old comes home talking about the history behind MLK day. When I was in Kindergarten, we learned our color...

Back from Savannah
I got home Thursday morning after 2:00 a.m. and was never so glad to touch the ground. Although my trip was awesome, after 4 days I was ready to see my family. Plus...with all the storms we were delayed in Cincinnati for over 4 hours. I was pooped!
Savannah was one of the most beautiful cities I've ever been in. The architecture and design were amazing. The history was powerful. The soul of the city was enveloping!
My co-worker and I stayed at 'The Mansion at Forsythe Park' in the heart of Savannah, across from Forsythe Park. The picture of our 4 star room is above. It was totally girly in hot pink and white. It was a very artistic hotel which had THE most heavenly beds I've ever slept in.
We had a lot of solo time during the day, which led us to Tybee Beach or napping/shopping. I haven't napped since my son was 2! It was awesome!
At night we had dinner and cocktails with others that flew in for the board of directors meeting. Sarah, my co-worker, and I hung out with about 35 others...mingling and having the best time.
As a group, we took a historic tour via bus through the city. It took us through the squares that are set all throughout historic downtown, and throughout the riverside area. The tour director pointed out all the famous homes, and gave great historic commentary but she kept giving too much personal information. I didn't really care how many private parties she held in each house.
Other than that...the tour was the most amazing experience. I plan on watching 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil' now...just to see the sights again. If you've never been you could pop it in....or watch 'Forrest Gump' with Tom Hanks or 'Something to Talk About' with Julia Roberts. Those were two other films that showcased some beautiful scenery from Savannah. I loved that city and want to take my family back to visit some day.

Although this is not typically my kind of genre, I stepped outside my box to experience something new, with the Warble by Victoria Simcox....
