My sister and I are so very alike; nearly identical emotionally, intellectually, spiritually. We are lovers and fighters. We react to most things with the same passion and enthusiasm. We share the same father, our paternal heritage runs deep into the hills of North Carolina, a troubled, poor, yet strong family line. Our unrelated maternal legacies hail from Kentucky where our two strong, loyal, persevering mothers were born and raised.
Tara and I took a spontaneous trip this month to Charleston, SC to celebrate her 39th birthday. What a charming, historic, beautiful place! My first experience exploring downtown Charleston is one I won’t forget!
Our cozy room at The Lodge Alley Inn.
BE THE CHURCH. Yes.
We stayed here, too! Elliott House Inn on Queen Street.
Breakfast at Toast.
Big as yo’ face biscuit at Toast.
Dinner at Husk. The best Manhattan can be found there.
Room with a view. We don’t recommend Room 16 at Elliott House Inn.
Charleston Firefighters – especially for Kat.
Rainbow Row – the longest cluster of Georgian row houses in the U.S. (Thanks, Wiki!)
Perhaps a Charleston problem as well? Proceed with caution.
Local brew at Henry’s House.
A fun cooking class at Charleston Cooks. Blair is a fabulous chef!
We scored these at the Historic Charleston City Market.
I roamed around Asheville, NC the morning I was driving home from South Carolina to my home in Tennessee.
