Little road trip to Savannah yesterday. So glad to get out of town and have a change of scenery. I had visions of tours of funky shops and some artful influence. But, alas, you have to be 4 year old flexible. We went to B & N in search of some of my favorite mags that I can't get here. I found my Dwell fix and Somerset Home (by Stampington Company). Somerset Home is an artful magazine showing creative handmade peices for the home. Stampington also makes a mag called Altered Couture, which is what I was actually looking for but they were out. Love all of their magazines. Very creative. Amazing how I dashed in for a couple of magazines and an hour and a half later....
By then we were starving, so we found food then headed down town. After grabbing some coffe at a very cool coffee shop, we went to Forsyth Park. It reminds me of Central Park in New York because it is a vast expanse of green and lined with old oak trees. In the middle is this massive fountain. It is a beautiful park. My girl spent some time on the swing/slide. Very happy to play. Very Sad to leave.
That was it. But you know, it was so nice to be together as a family. Hubby and I got a chance to really talk while we drove. A luxury we don't seem to have at home. We discovered we feel the same way about some things and it was just one of those days where you seem to understand what each person is saying. Where they are coming from. It was very good for us. Relaxing and restorative.
