traveling fool....

so where exactly have i been if i haven't been in blog land??? I've spent 36 nights in hotels in 2009... flown just under 15k miles and been to 7 states....

thankfully i got one great personal weekend in Savannah... a close friend from high school lives in jacksonville and drove up to meet me... we had an amazing time... walked around savannah one day and walked along Tybee island the next...

highlights include dinner at Paula Dean's restaurant... her son Jaime was in the store keepin' things in order and i could not get over all the people who had come to eat dinner... we got the last reservation of the day for 9:30 and must say that although the food was just O.K. the experience was well worth it... who knew collard greens were made with a cup of salt :) who knew that Lady & Son's went thru 75 lbs (that's right pounds!!!) of sugar a day making sweat tea and lemonade...

naturally we couldn't pass up a photo op with Paula in the lobby :)


i have a favorite new summer cocktail after this trip too... sweet tea infused vodka with limeade... i thought there was no way i'd find the vodka in these parts... but they had two brands to choose from... i'm not sure it's as good as the original firefly... but i'm hooked... tastes like an arnold palmer yummmmm...

and PS... i was not diggin on the whole sweet tea thing before meeting the firefly...

we hit the Bonaventure Cemetery as well where i picked me up some spanish moss... figured in my moist climate it would grow well and as you can see there was plenty to go around...

Oh my God, that tree is amazing! Love the photo. :)

Hope you get to settle down for awhile and spend some time at home. I bet you have such a profound appreciation for time at home with the family.

Holy moly...I'm exhausted from reading that.

Did you wave "hi" as you passed through my neck of the woods?
