Being able to go to Savannah was a birthday surprise for me. My husband picked out our hotel, location and then told me on the way there to start picking things to do. one thing that caught my eye was the 3 mile long driveway at the Wormsloe Plantation. Here's a quick peek from our visit there.
The best part of this visit to Wormsloe, was a family I met while walking the trail. The Simpson family to be exact. The mom saw me taking a picture of my boys and offered to take a family picture of us and I accepted. Once she was done she mentioned that she loved my camera and I then asked if I could return the favor and take a picture of them as well. Her face lit up and her daughter let me know,"Well, we are kind of a big group." The mom went and got everyone, her kids and husband hurried over and she grabbed her grand daughter. They gave me a cell phone to snap a pic, then propped themselves up on the tree stump and I took their picture.... Then, while they were posed, I told them that I would take a picture of them and email it once I got back home. I could hear the mom saying how excited she was to get the picture back and when I sent it over to them, the father's reply via email helped me understand why. They were all on a family vacation in Savannah, but all their children lived in different states, so the image isn't something that would ever be easy to come by again. He then let me know that I helped them make a special Christmas card this year. I could't help but get overwhelmed with emotion as I read the email because i didn't think one picture could mean so much to someone. But it did and they do. That moment when a passion/talent meets purpose. That's the best feeling.
