Camping In The Tombs

I hopped down to Georgia the other day to visit my sister who lives in Atlanta. We then took a little trip down to Savannah where summer was still going strong and managed to meet up with a couple of my cousins; making it quite the family get-together since we're usually rather scattered and reunions are infrequent. One of my cousins suggested we visit the Bonaventure Cemetery and it was truly a lovely spot dripping with Spanish moss and filled with dappled sunlight.
I was in Georgia for several days, but these are really my only pictures from the trip because I got my cold there and lost focus in the confusion of being sick (and high on cough syrup). Illness aside, it was a good little trip and now I'm back in Virginia recovering, making collages, and contemplating a pixie cut. Fall makes me restless.

  1. You should TOTALLY go for a pixie cut! I did that about 2 years ago and absolutely loved it. You could totally rock it. Plus, hair always grows back : )

  3. Love the dress on you! You should wear more dresses with a lower back that shows off your beautiful wing tatoos!

  4. I've been getting restless with my permed hair, too. I barely just cut off all my hair in July and then permed it a few days later and now I want to chop it all off. I'm sick of the curls.

    But enough about hair.

    Spanish Moss and tombs? Yes. That looks like something out of a story book of cities of crumbling glory.

    Feel better, Rebecca, and have a great weekend!

  5. PS! Regarding the coat, it's actually very thin, so once I acclimate, I'm hoping I can still wear it.

    And regarding visitors, we already have about 8 pairs of friends signed up to descend upon us once we settle in. We have weekends in January, February, April and June already tentatively spoken for. How crazy is that!? We're so lucky to have friends who love to travel as much as we do!

    :)

    I remember us discussing you coming out to Hawaii with your parents on your Birthday. Maybe we can meet up over food and take cute photos together?

  11. Such pretty photos and I really do think you would suit a pixie cut.

  12. These photos are lovely, so atmospheric. You look so summery as well! I'm so jealous! I hope you feel better soon xo

  13. I don't think you should do a pixie cut! I like the bob, I think a pixie would be too edgy looking! We have a similar face shape and I did a very short bob once and it looked cute -- maybe just do that?!

  14. These pictures are beautiful! They make me miss the South.

  15. I adore your look, so innocent looking. Also I'm very happy to see graveyard pictures in your blog. I love taking pictures of graveyards but people seem to think it's creepy. I think they are beautiful. :)

  17. That dress is perfection. And my vote is for the pixie! (as if you asked for votes. ha!)

  18. I hope you feel better- some kind of bug seems to be going around, I think I've been fighting it all week. I love your dress- what a fun find! It totally goes perfectly with your hair color. And I grew up in the Florida, and the trees are always full of moss, so your pictures make me miss it. maybe its time for a visit.

  22. Hey I live in Georgia! I always enjoy visiting Savannah. It's such a cool old city, isn't it?

  23. A pixie cut? Where will it end?

  24. Wow those photos are beautiful. Those trees are so unusual and a stunning backdrop for a cemetery. I've always wanted to go to that part of the world.

  25. @Mike, probably when I'm bald. Then there won't be anything to work with.

  26. You've really outdone yourself with this set of photos; the dappled sunlight and trees heavy with Spanish moss are exquisite! And I love everything about your dress--from the beautiful color to that amazing back (which looks so great on you). I say go for that pixie cut; I think the attitude of it would really suit you.

  27. Oh, I love all the photos from Savannah! I miss my home in ATL ... and I miss wearing short sleeves in late October.
    I'm glad you had fun in my old stomping grounds. :)
