had the complete pleasure of
heading down to
the charming and most wonderful hidden gem
i didn't realize at the time i would be falling in love
over the weekend
i'm here to spread the good charleston word
here is a little snap shot diary of
our quick trip...
found this bad boy on the main drag right off.
had only browsed the website.
way better in person.
scored this great scarf.
do we not loved stripes?
have i mentioned the charm?
off the charts.
all i'm saying.
had to take a photo of
this quaint wreath
hanging on this simple wrought iron gate.
then found this sparkly little bauble
at another one of my fave stops
not bad for
and it's not uncommon to see a horse
drawn carriage cruising down the main drag.
i think we might have taken a whiff of this guy before
we knew he was headed our way.
regardless it was a great sight.
it still gets better...
next we found ourselves in the grand lobby of
one of the city's crown jewels.
located in the heart of historic downtown,
noted as the most ritzy places in charleston proper.
i don't disagree.
check out this gorg building
loved it so much
had to make my children pose on the
grand staircase for a quick shot.
no wonder i love it.
it's the library society building.
i think i've told you about my love of libraries.
i have a love of anything library.
we dined in
one of the towns staple restaurants
(I know...i look slightly confused)
you get the picture
we got to try all their
signature local dishes
tess couldn't stop talking about
all in all
can't say enough about this little southern hot spot.
highly highly recommend a visit if you
ever get the chance.
you will not be disappointed.
new orleans meets old town alexandria

would love to hear your thoughts.
