Charleston

Pardon my absence the last few days, we were busy living it up in Charleston!  My husband and I took a little weekend getaway to one of our most favorite cities, Charleston, SC.  It's such a beautiful place, full of the best shopping, amazing food, adorable design shops, and stunning architecture.  If you haven't been you simply must go...

Here's a little taste of how we spent our weekend....

We arrived at our beautiful, historic hotel....




Did a little shopping at some adorable shops...


Visited the coolest urban outfitters I've ever seen (I think it used to be an old theatre)


inside...isn't it beautiful?!?


enjoyed some delicious gelato...


saw some of the cutest dogs...


soaked up all the beauty of the architecture...




took a ghost tour of the old jail, SO not scary and I'm a wimp...


Unfortunately it looked like this during most of our trip (which is why I didn't get a lot of pictures) but we still had a wonderful time and made the most of it....


 we stopped by this cupcake shop, we go there every time and it's always delicious!



and lastly, we just enjoyed a weekend together away...It was simply lovely.

I *love* Charleston - so full of charm and character. When my husband and I went there years ago, we both fell in love with it. If we ever moved, that's a place that would be on the top of my list.

It sounds like a nice (albeit drippy) trip. I have never been to Charleston....or Savannah....or New Orleans....or Williamsburg....or even Graceland for heaven's sake! I think I've lived in a box my whole life!! :)

Charleston is my home!! i am so lucky to have grown up here... while i've had thoughts of moving to experience somewhere different, i have always known that i would never actually leave at least not for long. it's more than home... it's me! it's always refreshing to hear someone else that appreciates it as much as i do!! come back soon!

Glad to know so many others love it too! If you've never been you definitely need to go, for sure one of my all time favorite places. Jenny, I think if I ever moved I would love to live there too!

You always make me miss my home when you post about Charleston! :) My parent's still live there, so at least I get to go back there for vacation.

I think I've mentioned this on your blog before, but you totally have to try Sugar Bakeshop on Cannon (right down the road from Francis Marion and around the corner from Hominy Grill). the cupcakes aren't as ornate and large as Cupcake, but they are simple, perfect ingredients and so so good. The owners are so nice too! :)

I remember staying in the Francis Marion Hotel a few years ago. Such a great historic space.

I am so behind on all of your wonders...lol
