Charleston, South Carolina : : Part One

DM and I were fortunate enough to go down to Charleston for a wedding a few weeks ago.

Before heading home, we went around downtown Charleston. If you haven't been, it is absolutely beautiful.

The weather wasn't the greatest that day, but that didn't stop us!

The homes, as you can see, are absolutely stunning. I am officially in love.

If only I could buy a house in downtown Charleston, across from the water, with enough acreage for all of the animals..... *sigh*.....

Although I love it, and think it is beautiful.... DM is OBSESSED!

He wants to move.... REALLY wants to move down there....

He loves the water. And the history. And the ambiance.

He loves it all.

And you can't help but admit that it is pretty fabulous.

It still has the charm of a small town though it is fairly large and it certainly has all of the amenities you could ask for.

Plus, it is chocked full of history.

I think spring and fall are perfect times to visit.... The summer? Well, it gets a tad bit toasty...


  1. Mom is so very jealous of your trip - she LOVES Charleston. She has been there once and fell in love with the place. She is hoping to get there sometime next year. It is just beautiful. She says thanks for the beautiful photos and memories.

  2. A tad bit toasty? Chuckling. We were there years ago for Spoleto when my sister was performing there. Miserable weather.

    But, we love Charleston from fall to spring and the winters are very pleasant there (though the Sibes complain of a lack of snow). And the city - at least SOB - is beautiful!

  3. I knew The Herd would paw what they did!

    The hoomans have always expressed how much they love it!

    My mom was there but that was last century!
