Savannah, GA

This year me and Bryn's spring breaks just happened to fall on the same week.  Rather than binging Netflix on the couch for the week, (let's be honest, that's all either of us really wanted to do!) we decided to get out of town for a couple of days, so we booked a room in Savannah, GA.

It only took minutes of walking around to fall in love with the laid-back vibes of the city with its Spanish moss draped live oaks, azaleas in bloom everywhere you turned, and the charming townhouses that lines the streets.

Lot's of county roads made for a long drive, so an afternoon pick-me-up was the first order of business when we arrived!  Savannah has so many cool cafes and coffee shops to choose from, but we opted for cold brews from The Coffee Fox.  Also, I was so impressed with the paper straws!

I especially loved how open-minded and accepting Savannah felt.  After living in places where everyone walks, talks, dresses, and thinks the same, if felt good to be in a place where everyone could just be themselves.

So many funky details in the city (and some kinda creepy like the mannequins in the gutter!)

Savannah has a huge St. Patrick's Day celebration, and all of the fountains are dyed green in honor of the holiday!

We couldn't go to Savannah and not have Leopold's Ice Cream.  It is worth the line!

So many lush, green parks (did you know Forest Gump's bench was in Savannah?)

Our visit was typical Bryn-Liz (throw back to "Briz" of our JET days!) style - mindlessly wandering, snapping photos, and popping in and out of shops.  It was the perfect get-away that we both needed.  I wouldn't go so far as to say we are refreshed and ready to go back to work, but who is ever ready for that?!

Even though this wasn't our first trip, we had a great time and will definitely be going back sooner rather than later.
