When your special day is their day too..

Savannah is for lovers…and weddings.

The city is famous for its many picturesque squares and on a recent visit, it seemed as ifScreen Shot 2019-06-01 at 8.00.33 AM.png there was a wedding happening at each and every one. I wondered if any of the brides ever bumped into each other as they meandered around getting iconic shots to commemorate their special event. How awkward would it be as a bride waiting for another bride to finish up her photo shoot in front of the famous fountain at Forsyth Park?

Yeah, that would be weird..can you imagine?

After at least a year of dreaming and planning and preparation it’s finally your  moment…

YOUR  once in a lifetime moment..

but there you are.. stuck in line behind other people having THEIR once in a lifetime moments.

Yikes.

I thought about that as I binge watched Amazon’s documentary on Everest last night. (I stayed up WAY too late..) It was absolutely fascinating, riveting actually, especially as Everest has been in the news so much as of late.  If you want a firm understanding of what climbing Everest with all of its inherent dangers and problems is about (and how so many climbers could have died this year) this 6 part presentation is an absolute must.

Every year more and more people trek to Everest’s altar only to discover a line of other lovers who picked the exact same day to seal their relationship.

Can you imagine??

After at least a year of dreaming and planning and preparation it’s finally your moment…

  2. Savannah is on of my favorite places! I celebrated my 50th birthday there. I didn’t see the documentary you mentioned but I saw a couple of photographs of the long line of people trying to get to the top. Crazy. I had a similar feeling in Jerusalem. I wish I could have experienced the holy sites in quiet solitude. That wasn’t happening with all of the tourists, including me.

    • The documentary was really, really good. Super compelling and so interesting to try and understand why (mostly men) and many of them middle aged, go on this dangerous and super uncomfortable trip…I’m more of a cabana next to the pool kinda girl..the only trek I want to make is a few laps around the lazy river..emphasis on lazy. But the most unbelievable part was when they got into the danger zone near the top and the lines started forming..I mean these guys have limited oxygen..there is no time for waiting..and yet like you said..everyone has an equal right to be there you could say..although people who were inexperienced were a huge impediment…anyway..the movie series (on Prime I think) was worth it..your husband would probably love it too.
