year 1 for the love doves

It's been awhile, but I have been throughly enjoying my summer vacation!
I may not have mentioned it before, but my precious puppy chewed through my computers power cord (so long ago I'm seriously embarrassed to admit how long it took me to get a new one).  So let's just say, for awhile I've been bumming off the hubs power cord.  Unfortunately, our computers are different and it just wasn't strong enough to do the job.  TODAY I broke down and got one!  So my blogging should be more up to speed now.

David and I turned this past weekend into a LONG one to celebrate our 1 year anniversary!  We left early Friday morning and drove straight to Savannah.  Since we were very early for our hotel check-in, we put on bathing suits and headed over to Tybee Island to catch some sun and explore.  
When we arrived at our hotel, there was a problem with our room and the hotel was unable to help us out with another room...worst nightmare when on vacation in a busy town.  We were refunded all of our money and set up in a BEAUTIFUL Bed and Breakfast in the Historic District.  It was quite literally, the last room for rent in town.  What seemed like it was destined to be a disaster, turned out to be the best thing that could have happened..  The President's Quarters Inn was beyond our expectations.  The staff was so helpful and kind.  Breakfast was yummy.  And the was perfect.  We could walk everywhere!

After finally getting settled, we headed down to River Street to eat at Fiddler's.  David had been before and loves there steamed seafood platter.  We got one to split and it truly hit the spot after a long day!  I tried my first crawfish (mudbug) and I thought it was okay!
The next morning we got up, enjoyed a beautiful breakfast outside and began touring!  Being two history nerds, seeing and touring the house Sherman stayed in when he came to Savannah was on our list of things to do.  The house was beautiful and the tour was so fascinating!  After walking through countless squares and shops we decided to grab some lunch and head back the to beach for a little more sun.  We ate lunch at B&D's burgers.   It is rated as 1 of the top 10 best burgers in the U.S.  And it truly lived up to expectations!

That night we dined at Huey's on River Street and walked around some more.  If you can't tell, I got a little sun (or burn)!  After dinner, we went on a ghost tour in a hearse.  It was a really fun experience!
On our anniversary, David and I explored Savannah more, shopped, soaked up some more sun, and ate a wonderful dinner at the Olde Pink House.  The house was converted into a beautiful restaurant.  We dined in the ballroom with chandeliers, mirrors, and gold and silver paintings.
We had the best time dressing up, taking pictures, and enjoyed dessert.  When our dessert came out, the waitress also brought a giant candelabra.  It was beautiful!

All in all, we had a FANTASTIC first anniversary celebration and trip! Tanning, shopping, exploring, touring, and eating cake- so fun!
Thank you to everyone who helped make our day so special one year ago.  We love you all so much!
