I graduated from college in May of 2006, went on a cruise the next day with my precious group of college girls (see pics below), came home, moved to Savannah the following day and started a job 2 days later.
I will be honest with you, the transition from college in to the "real world" was not easy for me. I was living in one of the neatest, most beautiful cities in America and I was going through some sort of funk. For about a year after college I was constantly nervous and anxious and ,to say the least, I didn't fully appreciate the two years I spent Savannah. I liked it fine but I didn't love it. Now I am down here this week and think ... what was not to love???!!! Savannah is amazing! The same thing with my job - when I had it I thought I absolutely hated it but thinking back now it was an awesome first job. It is funny how life works, huh? But I am so glad I have had the opportunity to be down here this week because I have had such a great time. A few of you commented or emailed me about wanting to plan a trip and you definitely should!!! Now, I will tell you ... it is HOT in the summer time. And I am talking about miserably hot. I suggest coming in the winter :) Last night I ate with my sister-in-law at a little English Pub downtown called Six Pence and it is a great place to go. Some of my other favorite restaurants are Il Pasticcio (that is where I am hoping to go tonight), Sushi Zen, Jazz'd, and A'Vida. Oh and, of course, you must go to Lady and Sons - just to say you have been! If you can, stay by the river and be sure to bring your spending money because the shops on Broughton Street are FAB!
Tonight I am meeting up with 2 of the girls that I used to work with down here. These girls are 2 of my favorite people in all the world. We are all different in age, background, etc. but when I moved to Savannah and started working with them they both took me under their wings and I love them both tremendously for doing so. We were the 3 Musketeers and we went through a lot together in 2 short years ... we travelled the world together, we went through engagements, weddings, break-ups, boob jobs (haha - not me), deployments, infertility, new houses, and the list could go on for miles. We were only friends for a short while but they will be my forever friends. I have not seen either one of them since my wedding in May ... we have lots to catch up on and I can't wait!
