I’m terrible at bios. How about I say that I have a cat? Do I sound like a crazy cat lady? Oh, well! She’s cute, but also a jerk. Ask me to see photos of her; I’ll show you.

I’m Savannah! I’m a true Southern girl with a double middle name, but sub the sweet tea for iced coffee. I thrive in organized environments and tend to over-plan. I live for cozy moments cuddled on the couch with my husband, daughter and two Frenchies, preferably watching my favorite flick, Dirty Dancing. No shame.
