Savannah on my Mind

I’ve been in Savannah less than 24 hours and I’ve already satisfied three desires:

1. I had shrimp and grits (less than 20 minutes after landing) at the big and bawdy 700 Drayton restaurant at the Mansion hotel on Forsyth Park.
Verdict: Usually I prefer a cream sauce but this one had a gravy, which was also nice, if rich, and the mushrooms rounded it out nicely.


2. I saw Spanish Moss, everywhere, dripping from live oak trees that canopy the streets. Tip: Don’t take any home, I learned that chiggers live in there. Ick.


3. I bought something. A kelly-green DVF dress to be exact. At a cute boutique called Bleu Belle on the great shopping strip of Broughton Street. (Shhhh, don’t tell my husband.)

I’m in Savannah to speak on a Design Blog Panel at the Savannah College of Art and Design’s SCAD Style event. Tomorrow I’ll be speaking with Katie Runnels of The Constant Gatherer and Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge. Come see us at 4 p.m. in the Pei Ling Chan Gallery.

More on Savannah to come …
