Charleston Memories

So we’re back from our absolutely fabulous weekend trip to Charleston. If you remember from my post last week, my mom and I took a girls’ trip to one of my favorite cities in the country – and she fell in love with it as much as I did a year ago.

Once again, the architecture was so charming, it made me happy.

They are known for their grand doorways – maybe we should adopt this architecture more in the Midwest!

We visited a plantation and learned more about local history.

We ate our weight in Southern food.

And partook in festive drinks from local eateries…

such as Husk – they have converted two old homes into a restaurant and bar. Love the brick, wooden beams, and bright red seating!

Finally, we walked through their open-air market and saw lots of handmade sweetgrass baskets, which are so very lovely and special to the history of Charleston.

I feel refreshed and inspired after our trip! I even had the opportunity to visit South of Market! I’ll show you photos of their latest interior goodies tomorrow!
