Neil and I decided to celebrate our anniversary by going to Savannah this year (we'll be married for three years on November 1st!!), and we knew that a trip to Savannah meant we had to explore Bonaventure Cemetery.

The cemetery was what we expected.. eerily beautiful and gloomy, just like an old southern cemetery should be, especially since the day we picked to go was rainy. For a cemetery, it seemed to be alive with tropical plants and fall color. 160 acres on the river with plants and trees of all shapes and sizes, well-kept but still wild. Spanish moss is lovely everywhere, but it's particularly effective in a graveyard. We visited Johnny Mercer's grave and walked around a bit before the rain picked up and made us leave.

More pictures from our trip coming Sunday, and photos of Rhi's wedding (which was perfect.. we didn't want the day to end) super soon. I have to work at American Apparel kind of early tomorrow, and we have to dress up in some sort of costume. In honor of John Hughes, I'm putting on a black hat and mismatched grandma clothes and dressing as Andie from Pretty in Pink (I don't really look like her but I'll do my best). Happy weekend!
