I was looking through my May posts and realized I never blogged about our honeymoon.  I don't want to bore my readers so I'll keep it to only one post and hit the highlights.  On March 25 we drove down to Savannah, Georgia and stayed at the beautiful Kehoe House - the same bed and breakfast Tom Hanks stayed in while filming Forrest Gump.

It is notoriously "haunted" and I did actually have a paranormal moment on my first night there.  I was wearing my Bucky sleep mask and I had just put it on (my eyes were wide open under the mask) and I heard a distinctive little boy's voice laughing at me.  It sounded like he was was standing right beside the bed.  Of course when I lifted my mask there wasn't anything there.  It. Was. Weird.

On to more romantic adventures - our honeymoon highlights:

  • Bonaventure Cemetary

  • Tybee Island and the famous Crab Shack

  • Private Carriage Ride before dinner at the Olde Pink House
  • Sweetwater Day Spa
  • Leopold's Ice Cream
  • Strolling down River Street listening to music
  • City Market Shopping
  • Moon River Brewery

  • Jen's and Friends Martini Bar
  • 17hundred90 Bar

  • Gryphon Tea Room for tea and scones

  • Forsyth Park
We relaxed quite a bit in our luxe B&B and ate fancy meals complete with after dinner drinks.  I wish we had more time to explore such a beautiful city but I couldn't have been happier anywhere else.  The old Southern charm set the perfect backdrop for our honeymoon.

I met several local artists and brought home a painting and two pencil sketches for our home.  All three now live in our bedroom and and bathroom.  We also purchased a book of Savannah photos from one of the museums for our guest room.  We wanted to bring a little Savannah back with us and we can't wait to visit again!
