one of my favorite meals in savannah was at the grey. the name comes from the restaurant’s former life as a greyhound bus station, and the interior decor is mid-century modern bus station chic.
sorry i only have 1 picture of the interior – i was too focused on the delicious food. the restaurant website has some great shots if you want to see more.
a chocolate store modeled after a library? literally my two most favorite things in the world. i visited many charming shops in savannah but this was hands down my favorite.
all the individual chocolates were behind glass cases from which you serve yourself.
i recently spent a long weekend in savannah, ga. it was a perfect getaway from nyc, where we mostly just shopped, ate, and walked around. the squares are as charming as everyone says, and the old historic homes are just breathtaking.
our hotel was right on the river, and one of my favorite things to do was watch the barges sail by in the early morning.
here are a few of my favorite shots.
i recently spent a long weekend in savannah, ga, where i basically just walked and ate my way through the city. i am still wading through my photos but in the meantime, here are the goodies i came home with.
the necklace is from the scad store. the artist takes old pieces from the 20s and 30s and reworks them into modern statement jewelry. i’m not really sure why i got new matches, other than the fact that long matches are so chic. beneath everything is a french linen bread bag.
wanted to capture some of the detail on this gorgeous bar of chocolate.
sorry for the blurry picture. i pretty much bought the candle because of the description.
i have been knee deep in organizing my iPhone photos, and i realized i never posted these from our wonderful trip to carmel. we went to the post ranch inn in big sur for my birthday dinner, and the setting, food, and service were all impeccable.
it got dark too early to catch the full sunset, but the little sliver of what was left was still breathtaking.
when we were in carmel, we drove down highway 1 and caught golden hour and the sunset in big sur. i have had the joy of seeing a lot of places is this world, but i am not sure that there are many landscapes that took my breath away like this. i am not a photographer, but these unfiltered iPhone pictures hopefully convey some of the magic.
i was lucky to spend my birthday weekend at the beautiful carmel valley ranch in carmel valley, california. the property was spectacular, and the staff was welcoming and lovely. i sadly didn’t get a shot of our room before our things exploded all over it, so let’s start with the view from our balcony.
one of the property’s many hiking trails
the sunrise from our balcony
amazing outdoor tub
our room’s two-way fireplace
pumpkin pancakes. the hotel’s food so absolutely delicious.
the impetus for this trip to croatia was largely to see dubrovnik. i had heard so much about this magical city, and yes, even though it was crowded and sometimes hot, it was just as magical as people have described. the cliffs, the red roofs, the winding stone streets, the shining diamond of the ocean…i still see it all in my dreams. there are very few places that i feel the urge to revisit, but dubrovnik is certainly on that list.
the upside of being incredibly delinquent in posting vacation photos is that you get to relive the memories of sun, sand, and the most impossibly blue and clear water while it is freezing and dark outside. croatia has been on my list for years, and it exceeded my expectations.
these photos were taken in split and hvar. although they look similar, each place had its own unique feel. i would totally recommend trying to go to each for those of you considering a euro trip.
