matt and i like to take at least one vacation a year.  that's usually all we can really afford, financially and time-off-work-wise.  we try to take a few small long weekends throughout the year, too.  this year, we've decided we're going to atlanta and savannah, ga.  i've been to atlanta before, but never to savannah, and i've always wanted to go.  matt's never been to either place.  but we didn't choose it completely haphazardly.  you may remember my bm abriel?  she's the one who i consigned my dress with last year.  she and her family (hubby and son) live in peachtree city, which is about 45 minutes southeast of atlanta.  so we're going to visit them and then take a drive to savannah, just the 2 of us.  i can't wait.

we'll start off in peachtree city, ga.  peachtree is a golf-cart community.

basically, it means you can get anywhere in town by car or by cart.  matt and i had a taste of this in october when we stayed at my parent's house in the villages, fl, and we completely loved it.  we were tempted to never come home!  it's so fun and so conveninent to be able to just jump in a golf cart and get where you need to go!  i seriously think we may just stay in peachtree forever!

while we're there, we'll definitely go see abriel's shop.  the pictures she's sent me of the store are beautiful, and i cannot wait to see it in person!  the shop is located in senoia, ga, which looks like an adorable little town with a cute historical downtown district.  it also happens to be where the amc show walking dead is filmed, so we might even have a celeb-sighting!

after spending a few days with abriel and her family, we'll drive over to savannah for a few nights.  my mom used to go to savannah a lot for business, and the way she used to talk about the town, i always thought it sounded magical.  the river, the sweeping live oaks with spanish moss, the big southern homes...well, and then if you read midnight in the garden of good and evil, you know that town just has so much fun and mystery and good old southern charm.
