Friday Faves

2 mins read

Hey hey and happy Friday!

I’m sharing this week’s Friday Faves from sunny Savannah, GA. After a pandemic-induced much-delayed travel itinerary, my mom and sister and I are finally taking the trip we planned over three years ago. We started in Charleston, SC then made our way to Savannah for this girls getaway. The food. The architecture. The ever-present wafts of blooming jasmine. This easy breezy Southern lifestyle is something I could get used to.

Needless to say, I’m taking advantage of the Southern cuisine and eating all of the fresh oysters and my favorite Southern dish each and every day, and no, I am not and will not be tired of eating it before our flight home tomorrow. Bring it on!
