Charleston Recap

I’m back from Charleston and feeling recharged.  I didn’t realize how much I needed that vacation.  You see, I am still dealing with morning sickness and I’ve been stuck in a rut.  I was nervous about the cross country flight with morning sickness but all turned out much better than expected.

My mom and I had an absolute blast catching up with family.  And I am very much smitten with the South.

Friday night was a fun dinner out.  Saturday morning we started out with breakfast at our hotel’s restaurant, Peninsula Grill.  Their walls were covered in velour with handsome old portraits; it all felt very cozy and gentlemanly.

We finished off breakfast with the wold famous coconut cake.  Let me tell you, it should be devoured any hour of the day – truly decadent.

We then took off and explored the market place, which is a series of many different vendors.  I wanted every piece of children’s clothing that I could get my hands on.  I was going to come back for this little dress but when I did the stall had already packed up – bummer…

We walked around Church street, which is probably one of the most charming streets in all of America.  Take a load of these homes…

We then went and met Angie Hranowsky at her home.  She is the nicest and she gave me great advice for my business.  Her home is a stunner in person; it is filled to the brim with personality and the coolest vintage pieces.


That evening we were hosted for dinner by my cousin’s wife’s parents.  It was an absolutely beautiful home that dates back to the 1700’s.  Those kind of dates blow this Californian’s mind.

The next morning was time for some shopping on King street.  Lucky for us, it was a perfect sunny day to stroll around and shop.  In tomorrow’s post, I’ll show the antiques and vintage pieces that I reluctantly left behind.

That evening, we headed to my cousin’s beautiful home for baked oysters and traditional southern food.  My cousin lives on a gorgeous tree lined street.  Again we took a stroll and fell head over heels for the homes.

The next day, we flew back home and I got to reunite with my love bug; I immediately dressed her in the Southern dress that her grandma got for her.  Thanks mom!


All in all, the trip was everything that I wanted it to be.  I have the best family and Charleston is the cutest city!!  Y’all got to get down there, ya hear?
