Because I love you, Savannah...

Normally these ladies bug the crap out of me, but look in the middle of the picture - yup, it's Forrest Gump.

Only in Savannah can you be walking around and spot Forrest. He was even holding a box of chocolates. For those of you who don't know, the part of the movie where Tom Hanks is sitting on the bench was filmed in Savannah.

Have I mentioned how much I love it here? And it's not just because you can walk around with an open container of alcohol, but heck, I'm not complaining. There is something very beautiful and magical about Savannah, and I'm officially in love. I've already told Adam we're retiring here, whether it be in six years when he's done with the military, or when we're old.

My mom and her husband were visiting last weekend, and we finally visited Forsyth Park, which is just gorgeous. There are flowering bushes and Spanish-moss draped trees, lot of grass and of course, the fountain.

If you look closely, you might be able to see that the water is green. Savannah does it up right for St. Patrick's Day. I'm still not sure why, but as a good Irish girl, I'll drink to it.

Savannah, you've got my heart.

Just don't drink *of* it. The fountain, I mean. ;-)

I always joke that I live where people retire to so I wonder where *I* will end up? I think if I had unlimited wealth, I would want to live the Winter in Florida, the Autumn in New England, and the Spring & Summer in two other places I have yet to determine...
