Its like Thunderbolt has taken a double espresso straight to the vein!

My little cottage  just got its CO on November 6th. To check out the final photos, you can browse them HERE.

Since I’ve put my old house on a monthly rental, I’ve realized that I was right about Thunderbolt’s location- people dig the vibe!!!  Some of my guests include a great couple from DC that came to Savannah to adopt a newborn – they chose MY HOUSE and said that they will never forget staying there and mentioned how much the space meant to them —  how can I even top that?!?

I’ve moved in temporarily to the new cottage so I can test out the plan – so far Tondee and I like it! Its open yet cozy, there’s enough storage for all my 47 coats and 65 pairs of shoes (kidding, not kidding), and the yard is so big its making me consider adding a two car garage with a garage apartment above. SERIOUSLY. LOVE.  Oh, and there’s a fireplace – so I’m in heaven and have not burnt myself up yet…

I always said that this building adventure would be about me committing to an area. I would only build in an area if I was a believer in it. And Thunderbolt IS THAT AREA. Its become what I knew it could!

With a very full heart, Happy Thanksgiving from the TBOLT!

Rails To Trails

On January 12, 2013, the Savannah Rails to Trails 50K will be Savannah’s first Ultra-Marathon!  The race is set to take off on the grounds of the Historic Fort Pulaski and McQueen’s Island Rails to Trails – Savannah.
Rails To Trails From A Savannah Cottage
Now,  an Ultra Marathon may not be in your repertoire, yet, so the planners have made sure there is a race to suit your level.  There are two other races taking place, a 5k and 25K.  Your participation will help raise funding and awareness for the severely eroded conditions on parts of the Rails to Trails so that it can be properly restored and maintained.  You’ll be inspired by the natural beauty of this low country course as it weaves around the Ft. Pulaski grounds and the Rails to Trails.  Please join Run 4 a Reason, Low country Ultras, Fleet Feet Savannah and help save our Rails to Trails! Continue Reading »
