“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” 
 Washington Irving

What does it mean to be a mother? I guess nothing can really describe what a "Mom" is, however, the quote above truly explains how we all feel about our moms. 

Mother's Day is the one day in the year when we can make our mom's day extra special: to celebrate their hard work, for being our hero, for the care and love they have given us, and to thank them for everything that they have done and given us. And Savannah doesn't miss a beat when it comes to this special time of the year.

This Sunday, May 8, plan, create happy memories and enjoy the whole day with the family (along with your fur-babies) here in Savannah. 

Here is our list of 5 Things TO DO this Mother's Day in Savannah. Enjoy and Happy Mother's Day!

While touring the paved streets of Savannah on a carriage is sure to give you a fresh perspective on the history and beauty of the city, it will be hard not to find yourself reminiscing those days when your momma used to run after you when you were younger or how you met your wife and the many places you went to on a date. End the afternoon with an early dinner at The Chart House Restaurant. Visit www.chart-house.com for the menu, prices and to make reservations.

Don't forget to hug that special woman in your life. To all of you reading this: sons, daughters, husbands, just hug her, kiss her, hold her hand. At the end of the day (not just this time of the year), all moms just need to hear the magic words "I love you".

Happy Mother's Day! 

To all you wonderful moms out there!
