Hello Charleston

I spent some time over the weekend celebrating my husband's birthday in Charleston.  It is always so nice to go back to one of my favorite cities.  I used to live only over one hour from Charleston when I lived in SC. Now it takes me about four hours but well worth it!

We had a great time of celebrating the birthday at one of my husband's favorites, Husk.  Couldn't resist ordering one of my favorite dishes there, Shrimp and Grits.  It is not your typical dish consisting of shrimp, scallions and bacon poured over grits.  This delicious entree was presented with grits and smoky tomato and pepper broth with field peas and shrimp.  Their grits are so creamy, too!

I love swooning over the historic homes and shopping at some of my favorite boutiques.  There was actually some holiday shopping done and some of it checked off of my shopping list which is always a good thing!

It was nice visiting Charleston close to Christmas, there were so many beautiful wreaths on the front doors and gates of the homes.  (I was able to photo some!)

Thanks so much Charleston for the lovely hospitality and wonderful birthday celebration!  I will be back soon to visit you again!


  1. I want to go to Charleston in the spring. Trying to plan with with some friends. That's such a great picture of you. :)

  2. Beautiful City! Glad you enjoyed the Shrimp & Grits, that is one of my favorites also, I've never tried with the field peas though. Sounds very tasty!

  3. My husband and I celebrated our Anniversary this past weekend, and were very close to going to Charleston, but ended up going to Charlotte instead! Love Charleston, we spent our honeymoon time between there and Savannah. Happy Belated Birthday to your husband! :) ~Rhonda

  4. I have always wanted to visit Charleston! I'm glad you had a great time!

  5. We went to Charleston for the first time at the end of May for my birthday. It was hot as blue blazes, but we really enjoyed the gas lanterns, the window boxes, the historic home tours and the hospitality. Glad y'all had a lovey time.

  6. I have always wanted to visit Charleston.

    Happy Happy to your Hubby.. so glad to hear ya'll had a wonderful time.
    Holiday Blessings to you and yours.

  8. Such lovely photo's! I love the homes you shared. I really hope to visit Charleston some day! We came so close last time we visited, but time ran short, and it didn't happen.

  9. A very good representation of the historic homes i love so much come back soon!

  10. Only downsides here was that I’m not sure if they were expecting such a crowd as they did not have nearly enough servers and sometimes it would take a really long time for service guy to come. But at these event venues they tried to keep a smiles on their face.
