I spent this weekend with some of the most amazing Women(and I Gentleman) that I know. Luckie of OurGeorgiaRoots, Sandra of I Never knew my Father, Mavis of Georgia Black Crackers, and Sandra’s Brother Bernard decided to get together for the Southeast Family History Expo in Savannah, GA, but it was more than that to me. It was more about spending time with family, like cousins getting together that had not seen each other in a long time!
I headed out from Union Station in Washington, DC at 9:55 am on Friday for Savannah and arrived to find that Amtrak left my Suitcase in Fayettville, NC. I did not get upset, Again, I was going to see my family, and in true family fashion, they were more concerned about my suitcase than I was!!!
I arrived a the Savannah B&B in the Historic District to find that Mavis had checked in but the others had not made it as yet. Mavis and I spent almost two hours chatting about everything under the sun. I felt that I knew her already. See this weekend was not just about genealogy, it was about folks that met online, who share the same passion, and just needed to get away.

When the others arrived, we immedaitely migrated to Sandra’s room and chatted some more into the wee hours of the night. I was so excited that I had left my Netbook, Room Key, Tote Bag, and Coat in the dining area on the table, when I returned I had found that staff had put my things in a secure area. THANKS for that. Some other place probably would have left it and if it would have come up missing would had said “not my responsibility”. Its always those little things that makes you’re Stay even more special!!

Although we stayed at the same B&B we all had a different room in different locations. Luckie and I stayed in the same place but on different sides.
We booked our rooms at different times and requested Managers Choice, and did he choose correctly. My room was the Library, filled with warmth, a fireplace, and plenty of books. The kind of room that you would want to cuddle up in with a good book and have a nice fire going in the fireplace. I never spoke to any one that reading was one of my favorite past times, but the room fit me to a tee!!!
Luckie’s room was Luckie all over it from the colors to Buddah over her bed. I had to get a picture and named it Luckie in her Blog.
When I left for Savannah and my son found out that I was staying in the Historic District he said to me “Don’t bring no Spirit back Home”! I wish I would have because if there was a Spirit it allowed two nights of restful sleep that I had had in a long time! This place was so Beautiful, I recommend anyone staying in Savannah to stay at the Savannah B&B, you feel like you are at home.
Although there is more to our trip, I to will be posting more in the future. I have taken a lot of pictures and will be posting some in future post and if you can’t wait then I have created an album on my FaceBook Page.
Until Next Time!!

    Excellent post, Fe, and like I said on Luckie's, all weekend, I felt like I was missing a family gathering. I'm so glad you all had such a great time, and I'm also happy that the weather cooperated!
