I am currently enjoying a very relaxing "mini moon" with my husband in Savannah, Georgia.
This is one of the countries oldest cities, dating back to 1733, and brimming with that old Southern charm that I love.
I am now officially in the mood for 'Gone with the Wind'. Although, I am not sure I can get my boys to sit through that, I may have to plan a girls night--maybe I can serve up some Peach Cobbler or Red Velvet Cake while we watch:)
I have always LOVED that film, in fact my name was inspired by the kind hearted character, Melanie Hamilton Wilkes. My Mom would tell me how Melanie refused to see bad in people and she hoped I would do the same. This thought has stayed with me as a gentle reminder and goal.
I have come to realize that I am happiest when I focus on the good in others. Funny how that works!
Well, I am off to enjoy some good southern home cookin' at Savannah's own Paula Deen's " The Lady and Sons" restaurant Yum!
