A Trip to The Bluff // Montage Palmetto Bluff Recap

Last week Todd + I had the absolute pleasure of finally experiencing the Montage Palmetto Bluff. If, like me, you can’t get enough of marsh view or Spanish moss-covered oaks, then this place should be at the top of your travel bucket list. Situated on a peninsula of 20k acres, Palmetto Bluff is an exclusive […]

Fall Social Distancing Bucket List // October + November 2020

Safari Fall Festival // Eudora Farms

This morning we noticed that a mini pumpkin had grown on our pumpkin vine in the backyard. Though is was adorable, it wasn’t going to do much for decorating the house, so we took advantage of the gorgeous, chilly fall weather and decided to go in search of a few pumpkins for the season. After […]

Networking in Charleston // Fall 2020

If I’ve learned anything in the past few years its that you are only as successful as the relationships you build.

St. Phillips Private Island // Beaufort, SC Day Trip

Summer Commencement Trip // A Guide to Greenwood, SC

The last week or so has been tough for everyone, the kids included. Making sure they understood the tragedy + the social justice movement that was taking place was incredibly important, but we also felt it was important that they feel the magic of summer…especially after the spring we’ve all had.  So, we hopped in […]

Introducing “Chic Eats in SC” // Bodhi Thai

Today I am so excited to introduce a new series, Chic Eats in SC, that will highlight the restaurants I consider to be “hidden gems” throughout the great state of (you guessed it!)– South Carolina. One of the biggest misconceptions of SC is that Charleston is the only city with dining experiences worthy of IG-ing […]
