This past weekend we had a little weekend getaway in Savannah to celebrate Valentine’s Day, my birthday, and any holiday we’ll miss out on these next six months. February decided to act like spring with 75 degree days and plenty of sunshine.
We woke up long before the sun on Saturday morning and hit the road with coffee in hand. We switched off taking naps and pulled into Savannah right in time for an early lunch. Zunzi’s was calling our name for lunch in the park.
After lunch we hopped in and out of the shops on Broughton.
Paris Market is one of my absolute favorite shops. With French music playing in the background and everything in the shop being absolutely stunning, it is a must visit.
As the afternoon approached, it was time for a pick me up at The Coffee Fox, another Savannah favorite. We enjoyed our drinks while listening to live music in the market and loving every minute of the sun shining on our faces. Summer in February is a gift.
After freshening up back at the hotel, we made our way back out in search of the perfect happy hour spot. I made sure we took just about every detour to stroll through the picturesque streets. This place is beautiful.
Always looking for a perfect perch for a nice self timer picture.
We stumbled upon Hitch and really hit the jackpot. Their menu is bizarre and perfect. Think chicken pancake tacos, cheesesteak eggrolls, and pb&j wings. Our waiter said we had to try the nachos so that we did. Holy moly.
After drinks and nachos we head out for a few more drinks and ended with a MASSIVE slice of Hawaiian pizza from Vinnie Van Go Go’s. All in all, an incredibly healthy day.
After our incredibly healthy Saturday, Sunday morning begged us to go for a run. We did a few laps around Forsyth Park, looped back to check out my old summer abode, and snaked back to our hotel. We headed straight for Foxy Loxy after our run for coffee and a cream cheese kolache and bacon and egg kolache. As the temperature rose to the mid 70s and the sun began to peak out behind the clouds, we sipped our coffee and enjoyed a slow morning.
I told Ben I didn’t care when, but Leopold’s was 100% in our weekend agenda. We enjoyed our ice cream cones outside before hitting the road. It was even better than I remembered.
Savannah holds the dearest spot in our hearts. The summer before my senior year I did an internship there and Ben was able to visit a few times. It was that summer we had several conversations sitting in the park of, “Are we really doing this thing?” and “What is life going to look like these next few years?” A few months later Ben proposed to me and our adventure started. I loved sitting in this city again having conversations of similar tune such as, “We’re really doing this” and “What are these six months of deployment going to look like?”
Walking through life together is the best. I always cherish these weekend getaways to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and everything in between.
