Folly Beach - A day in the life
November 26th, 2013 - After a long week of being sick and an intense weekend downtown, I decided to take it very easy this week. After the long-time Folly Beach location of Jack’s Cosmic Dogs closed, we all waited in eager anticipation on its replacement. The Bohemian Bull felt like it went up over night and just as fast as the doors opened, the crowds began to pour in by the dozens.
Festival of Lights, James Island, Charleston, SC
November 20th, 2013 - Each and every year, James Island gives each and every citizen an early Christmas present: The Festival of lights (website). Located in James Island County Park, The Festival of Lights is a James Island tradition and a great one at that. From November 8 - December 31, James Island County Park comes alive with illumination, and is a great place to capture the magic of the holiday season. The festival is ranked as “one of the top 100 events in the nation” and brings people in from all over Charleston and even the world.
Sick in the Holy City
November 20th, 2013 - My week didn’t exactly go as planned, but my weekend happily made up for it. I spent the entire workweek sick, but trying to pretend I wasn’t sick, which just made me really sick. By the time Friday rolled around, I had enough EmergenC and Dayquil in me to cure a small village of the common cold. By Friday night, however, I was feeling well enough to join my friend downtown and have some post-cold fun.
Get Your Thanksgiving Appetite Running
November 14th, 2013 - Looking for a new Thanksgiving Day tradition? How about signing up the family for the Turkey Day Run in downtown Charleston?
The Notebook, Charleston Style
November 12th, 2013 - Yes, I am one of those women who positively love the movie,
I saw it twice in theaters when it first came out (cried both times) and bought it when it came out on DVD (back when you had to actually buy DVD’s). I can recite the entire movie by heart and I can even tell you when Ryan Gosling’s birthday is (today, in fact.) When I moved to Charleston, I knew it would come bearing gifts of wild adventure, but you can imagine my excitement when I learned that much of
was actually filmed in Charleston (eek!).
Where to Eat this Christmas in the Holy City
November 4th, 2013 - With a nickname like the Holy City, it’s no wonder they do Christmas right. From decorated plantations, Christmas parades and visits from Santa himself, if you go anywhere this holiday season, make sure Charleston is on your list. (Maybe check it twice.) With your calendar full of cheerful and joyous things to do, the big question always on my mind is, “Where and when do we eat?” In Charleston, there are a number of places taking holiday reservations early, and trust me, there is good reason for it.

A Home Away from Home
November 4th, 2013 - One of the hardest things about moving to Charleston was saying goodbye to my friends and family. I come from one of those towns where people are lucky enough to have the same group of friends from childhood. Girls I shared my lunch with in kindergarten will one day be my bridesmaids and vise versa. I am also lucky enough to come from one of those families where there is a thin line between relative and best friend. Between my friends who feel like family and my family members who double as my best friends, it was not easy saying goodbye.
