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!)
