So why “the green doors” ? Well, there are several reasons. First, my best husband EVER took the photo and I love it and him. You can see more of his photos here . We put this one on canvas and I have it hanging in my office.
Secondly, green happens to be my favorite color. There is quite a bit of green in our home. ( Look for a tour in coming months). I will give details about what we have done and what we want to accomplish. Currently I am considering a guest room redo, and the living room needs an update badly. It is just not functional. You will see what I mean when I post the pictures.
Next , the doors are from our wedding trip to Savannah, Ga.
Love this place. Looking at the photo makes me happy and brings back wonderful memories of our wedding and trip there. It was chilly but not to cold for sightseeing. Yes I do have a bag or three in my hands…it was not to chilly for shopping. So many little shops. SCAD, the Savannah College of Art and Design, has a wonderful gift shop with so many student designed products. Jewelry, art, textiles, furniture, photography, just to start. It is definitely worth your time. I also love the Savannah Bee Company. I brought some of this back for my daughter. This body butter is wonderful. Wonderful part of this body butter is that she stopped in Savannah on her way back from Florida and brought some back to me! Check out their honey too.
The squares and parks in Savannah are so pretty and green that you forget you are in a city. I just love the history and beauty of the old buildings. There is so much to see and do. As you can see, early January still left some with their Holiday greenery and ribbons. I want to make a return trip in the spring when everything is in bloom. If I was going to have to pick a city to live in , it would be Savannah.
You know it was the coldest winter on record for like the last 30 years or something. Of course we decide to go south and tie the knot, and it is freezing! Go figure. We did not take this as a negative sign and did it anyway. We got married at this little church in Thunderbolt, just outside of Savannah.
We stayed at The Marshall House, a wonderful old hotel. Our room was one of several that opened to the balcony. If you look close in the photo you will notice there are no doors. The rooms had tall windows that you stepped out to the balcony. Hotel staff told us when the hotel was built taxes were calculated on the number of rooms a building had. the more doors the higher the taxes. It was used as a hospital during the war and hotel guests often say they hear patients wandering the halls. Thankfully we did not! The Olde Pink House was a wonderful place for a romantic wedding dinner. Very elegant and the food was wonderful.
Finally, the doors also symbolize a new beginning for me in many ways. A new marriage and life with a wonderful man, a new city, and a new purpose and direction full of possibilities with this blog.
Do you have a favorite picture that brings back a flood of memories and feelings? I would love to hear about it.
