Charleston, SC has to be one of those quintessential Southern towns you should visit at least once in your life (or 3 or 5 times like I have).
Who doesn’t love the farmer’s market on Saturday mornings, the local women weaving their sawgrass baskets, and the local farmers and artisans selling their wares?
Who doesn’t love that shrimp and grits are not only an acceptable breakfast food, but in fact, it’s encouraged you enjoy them for brunch on Sundays?
I remember the first time I came to Charleston. I was probably 8 0r 9 years old and we must have taken 4-6 carriage rides that weekend because I couldn’t get enough of riding around the city, learning the history, and playing with the horsies. In fact, we used the same tour company a few times, so dad would walk to the front and ask for different buggies and different horses just for a little change in the scenery.
Bless his heart. He’s a good daddy.
It has been many years since my last trip to Charleston, but we returned there this past weekend to celebrate this one…
My sweet Sloan, my first college friend, is getting married this May to a man that loves her to distractedness. And I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of their big day.
We had the time of our lives- brunching, site-seeing, shopping, touring, and spending time celebrating our individual friendships with Sloan. I wanted to share with all of you a few great memories I brought home with me to Atlanta.

Brunch at Charleston landmark Poogan’s Porch for some Crab-cakes Benedict and some Shrimp n Grits… yum!
Then Sarah and I took a horse and carriage tour through historic residential Charleston and walked to the Battery. Our horse’s name was “Sugah Cain”. How perfect is that?!?
I have definitely inherited the trait of taking pictures of homes, gardens, architecture, carvings, gates, and doorways from my Mother.
Apple don’t fall too far…
I just love travel! I could do it almost every weekend.
Thank you for letting me share memories from Charleston. I honestly can’t wait to go back!
