I recently had the opportunity to take a macaron making class at Sur La Table in Boca Raton, Florida while visiting my aunt.

24 Hours in Savannah, Georgia
I have the great pleasure of only living 2.5 hours away from the beautiful Savannah, Georgia. If you’ve never been, you’re truly missing out. As your walk down the cobblestone streets, you can smell the sweet scent of Magnolias blooming on the trees that arch over you.

With so much to choose from, how do you pick just a few for a 24 hour trip to Savannah? Continue reading
