Spring is in the Air!

On a recent business trip to Savannah, Georgia spring fever was spreading throughout the city in epidemic proportions.  The distributor that I met with said that anything above 60 degrees gave him a bad case of it!

March is a flurry of activity and events for Savannah and nearby Tybee Island.  There is the 3rd annual Mardi Gras Tybee, an international boat show, a garden festival, music festival and Savannah homes & gardens tour to name just a few.  According to my distributor though, the piece de resistance is the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade.  Savannah is known for hosting the second largest parade in the world.  But be warned, if you don’t already have reservations you are probably out of luck!

Other signs of spring included sprucing up homes & landscaping. As I drove about the city, ladders and paint cans were a common sight.  It was good to see businesses put to work.  Maybe it was just a symptom of spring fever or the hustle of activity preparing for the tourist season but there was definitely a feeling of optimism in the air.

So in honor of the season and full of optimism myself, I leave you with this Irish blessing:

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
May the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
