What I'm Reading...

Ahhh, magazines. I just love magazines and what's better than having them delivered right to your mailbox? I currently subscribe to several magazines and I really need to get better at carving out time specifically for reading them. They bring me such joy!

One of my favorite things is to be reading a publication and find that one of my most cherished places, restaurants, brands, etc., has been mentioned. I get this sense of pride, almost as if I am the owner of that restaurant or created that brand. It's quite funny! What can I say, I'm passionate. Likewise, it always warms my heart to see my hometown of Savannah written about. This time, it was a little closer to home...my second home, that is. The cover story of April's Atlanta Magazine is Girls Getaways. When I pulled this puppy out of the mailbox, I couldn't wait to read the feature for many reasons. One, I'm a girl who likes to get away and two, something just told me (other than the cover, ha!) that Savannah would be one of the featured destinations. And what do you know, I was right!

Atlanta author Rebecca Burns did a great job covering my fair city. She visited some wonderful establishments including ShopSCAD, Sentient Bean, Distillery, Paris Market, Leopold's Ice Cream, the Juliette Gordon Low House (for all the girl scouts out there), Clary's Cafe, SCAD's Museum of Art, the Westin Savannah Golf Resort and Spa, and many more. All of these places do a great job of encompassing Georgia's Oldest City. Of course there was a Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil reference or two (which I love!) and thankfully, no Paula Deen references.

Other Getaways on the list include:
Watercolor, FL
Asheville, NC
Kentucky's Bourbon Country: Bardstown, Frankfort and Lexington

I've been to Watercolor, FL but not Asheville or Bourbon country. Those are definitely on my list!
If you aren't familiar with Savannah, GA, check out this {website} and get to know the place I call home.

What local magazines do you read? And more importantly, what's your idea of a great Girl's Getaway?
