“For me, Savannah’s resistance to change was its saving grace. The city looked inward, sealed off from the noises and distractions of the world at large. It grew inward, too, and in such a way that its people flourished like hothouse plants tended by an indulgent gardener. The ordinary became extraordinary. Eccentrics thrived. Every nuance and quirk of personality achieved greater brilliance in that lush enclosure than would have been possible anywhere else in the world.”
― John Berendt, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
I just got back from a girls weekend to Savannah and I can’t wait to share some outfits from my trip and my travel guide. I will definitely be sharing my favorite restaurants from the trip; I may be 10 lbs heavier from all the yummy food! In the meantime, I wanted to share with you this house that we did a tour of. It is the Mercer Williams House. It was featured in the movie “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. If you are planning a trip to Savannah this book and movie are a MUST before you go. I actually didn’t even think to check these out and many of our tours referenced the book. Needless to say, I left Savannah feeling a little left out but don’t worry I have started the book and have a date night planned with my hubby to watch the movie. I found this quote from the book and it really spoke to me because one of my favorite things about the South, and Savannah in particular, is the rich architecture and its portrayal of the past centuries. Being immersed in the stories of an old city, the gorgeous ornate architecture and the delicate antiques of the city made this such a memorable trip.
