sunny days.

 

palm lined sidewalks.

 

it was another gorgeous weekend in savannah, friends.  the weather was perfect with the window flung open, i celebrated with friends, evan and i chatted about what the wedding will look like and we fielded some incredibly nice well wishes.  i continue to grin from ear to ear…

 

spanish moss with sunshine.

 

we spent two whole afternoons draped on a blanket in the park.  me: reading back issues of martha stewart weddings aka my personal heaven, evan: reading books on history.  both of us getting some much needed sun.

 

there was the obligatory manicure to go with my new piece of sparkle (with accompanying pedi, naturally).

knockout pout by essie on my fingers.

 

we toasted with evan’s parents over a steaming pot of low country boil.  there was the most insane blanket of fog on tybee, as soon as we drove onto the island it was as if it had been bathed in smoke.

sunday morning we were back downtown for more sun in the park.

 

printed dress...my ode to mrs roper. sure to be worn to shreds by september.

friends. not shown: one hyper, happy shiba inu, off camera chewing grass.

 

i am actively trying not to panic about all of the planning and details and am focusing on how thrilled i am to invite our friends and family to savannah (hopefully) for a big party.  first goal: set a date.  yikes.

xo, anne

summertime clothes

valentine's shoes, how nice of you to join us so soon!

this weekend was incredible.  i know all weekends are pretty great inherently but this one whispered to me of summer.  and that, friends is something special.  the weather forecast and its highs in the mid to upper 70’s is what pulled me through an intense as all get out week.  i sat at my desk, pausing between emails, to daydream of a weekend spent on a blanket, bathed in sun at the park.

pattern, stripes, big glasses...we're off!

some might call my determination something close to hellbent.  and in the end it was so worth all the dreaming, the planning, the packing of bags for a day at the park.  there were books to be read, magazines to pore over, perrier’s to be sipped, sandwiches to be nibbled and then i may or may have topped the whole shebang off with some icy cold prosecco.  because that is the icing on the cake in terms of a warm, sunny day at the park.  right?  the whole day had a feel of “i must pinch myself, this is per.fection.”

note the bags in the background. evan remarked that i pack more for an afternoon in the park than most folks do for vacation. he might be correct.

vintage napkins, sparkling libations, sandwiches and an evan foot.

in the late afternoon we left downtown for a jaunt to tybee.  i wish it was just for some time at the beach…but our dryer is broken and the laundry pile was inciting panicky feelings.  which were not welcome on my magical weekend.  we watched the sun set over the marsh and then headed to a cute little restaurant for dinner and maybe one more glass of bubbles while our laundry got to work at evan’s parent’s house.

after dinner we went down to the beach and saw the most amazing moon over the water.  no matter how much we tried to capture the intense light bathing the water, it was a sight best seen in person.

oh, gorgeous nighttime sky.

nighttime reflections.

sunday was a day filled with beachside lunch (though i should note it was quite chilly so you don’t hate me too much), errands, sunshine and preparing for another workweek.

xo,

anne
