Monday, February 15


I grew up a few hours from the South Carolina coast, and I happen to think it is one of the most beautiful places in the world. There is something quite enchanting about the little quaint islands covered with old oaks and Spanish moss, beach cottages and sandy paths that almost always wind to the sea. There is so much to explore, so much to see, so much to just sit and enjoy...

John and I spent the last weekend in the Charleston area. We stayed right across the bridge in Mount Pleasant, spent some time on Sullivan's Island (at the beach, at the lighthouse, and at Fort Moultrie), and of course, spent almost all of Valentine's Day in one of my most favorite places--Charleston. We always spend a day in Charleston during the summer with the kiddos, but without the kiddos this time, we were able to really foot it around the city and enjoy the day. We skipped the things we always do with the children, and we explored as much as we wanted! We walked through the Waterfront Park. We shopped King Street. We explored gardens and cemeteries and took note of all the beautiful ironworks! We took pictures, we held hands, we laughed, and we talked. We sat on the steps of the old Customs House and made plans and talked about dreams. We people-watched and we carriage-watched. We had an awesome dinner, and then we headed back to Mount Pleasant and took the footpath across the Cooper River. It was absolutely beautiful to look out over at night.

It was an incredible weekend.
