(Covid Friendly) Charleston Bachelorette Weekend Itinerary

If I’m being completely honest with you… never in a million years did I think my bachelorette weekend would take place in my hometown. Sure, Charleston tops nearly every list for “best places to celebrate with your bridesmaids”, but because it’s where I grew up– and where I return at least once a week– I […]

An Ode to Guesthouse Charleston

My wedding was honestly a dream, but the one thing that didn’t feel right was not having the opportunity to share that moment with all the people we love– thanks to the fear of Covid. There were only 20 guests in attendance, which meant I got 10 invites.. as did Todd. In addition to several […]

Earlier this week I had the opportunity to visit charming Beaufort, SC. This quiet Lowcountry town is small, but full of rich American history. Beaufort, specifically the Milton Maxcy House, is where the the succession papers were first drafted– which ultimately led to the Civil War. The exact same town was also where Union soldiers […]

Charleston Staycation with my new friend, Emeline!

This past weekend Todd + I had the opportunity to meet Emeline, a unique boutique hotel experience in the heart of Charleston’s French Quarter district.

I love it all: performing arts, theater arts, literature, decorative arts..and of course, visual arts. There’s something about witnessing the expression of a feeling you couldn’t put into words that, to […]
