Here’s why!

2.  A beautifully invigorating two hours at the Laurel Grove Cemetery here in Savannah this week.  (I had never gone before.)

(Beware:  A rather long mix of pics ahead.)

As I walked through the moss-laden oaks, I was mesmerized by the power of time to take back into the earth all that belongs to her.  All.

Okay, I’ll stop even though I kept taking pictures.  I love cemeteries.  They are such celebrations of LIFE.

3.  Meals this week.  (All from the Forsyth Farmers Market here in Savannah.)

Great Weekend!

 

Picnic in the Park–Savannah Style

Picnic1

One of the Joys of living in Historic District Savannah has to be Forsyth Park (Savannah’s little local version of NYC’s Central Park).  And our incredible lineup of fall festivals and celebrations just make me want to jump  for joy all season long.

Last night, I attended Savannah’s Picnic in the Park, with a lineup of incredible music provided by the Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra!  I am SO fortunate to live in a city that was founded eons ago on the twin pillars of Art and Commerce.

Here’s my car packing and wagon-ing:

(Isn’t my Coexist bumper sticker cool?  I’m not 100% sure what it means, but I figure it increases my Hipness Factor by a few points.)

Inside my cooler and picnic basket, I had basil lemonade, sandwiches, fruit, vegetable chips and humus, cookies, candles, the current issue of Oprah and a red fake bird.

Folks on the stage said there were between 15 and 20,000 folks in attendance.  Idk.  I didn’t count.

Here I am with Chewy (the mascot of Parker’s Convenience Stores–primary sponsor of the picnic).

And if you were so inclined, you could register your “picnic-ing” in a contest.  Here are a few of the entries:

Then it got dark, and I lit (lighted?) my candles and listened to soul-freeing arias and music.

What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday evening and night.  Thank you, Gorgeous Savannah.
