When we moved to Savannah last year – one year to the day! – I expected to downsize our belongings and upsize the laid-back posture of our lives. But getting to know this town has taken every bit of energy we can muster. There is SO MUCH to do! People to meet, places to explore, even finding the quiet moments has taken planning and discipline to make it happen.
How about adding a resident swan to the pool? I love house tours!
Dinners, parties, art exhibits (who knew that Winston Churchill’s paintings were so darn impressive!), bike rides, luncheons….. We gave a party earlier this month, called PWP. A Party with a Purpose. I love this idea. We raised money for the American Cancer Society. The Chairmen of the committee decided to go with the Cinco de Mayo theme. Fun and festive. I laughed and said, “but my house is more English tea party!” No matter, it was great fun. Just hang some Mexican flags, lanterns, put out the maracas and get your local florist to give your table some JAZZ! The Blooming Idiot in Savannah, found some great, colorful flowers to make the table say MEXICO! It took some bright flowers to take your eye away from 18th century painting and panettiere! I hope it worked. We were happy to welcome our neighbors to our down sized home for margaritas and Mexican food while raising funds and awareness.
Many activities that we have been involved with are drawing to a close as Summer begins early in Savannah. I hope to have more unscheduled hours to follow the light with my camera, listen to some birdsong, play in the garden. How about….read a book! Are you planning your Summer yet?
