( I don't eat what I like to call "exotic" meats such as frogs, deer, lamb, etc.) I decided to make my change around mid- September, so to date it's been about 4 months now. I… Continue reading Quitting meat: Was it worth it?
This post is about my absolute favorite places to eat in Savannah. I've been in the area just shy of 10 years, so I've accumulated a few of restaurants to my list.

This year, we decided to spend a dew days in Orlando, FL for family vacation. Although we love Mickey mouse, July is NOT the ideal time for our family to visit Disney world.
