This weekend I took a little road trip down to Charleston, SC to visit one of my best friends. I’d never been to Charleston so I was crazy excited to explore a new city. The drive down was super peaceful — I mean…5&1/2 hours of just me and my music? — Glorious.
When I got to the city, I fell in love like I knew I would. It was all old timey & full of southern charm — yet it still felt really modern and urban…My kind of town.
My friend had to be somewhere for an hour so I had a little alone time to wander. I ended up on King St. and… um…. may have gotten a little teary eyed/overwhelmed at how good the shopping was.
I bought these and I’m very happy about it:
Also stumbled across this beautiful idea. Some genius decided to put it on the side of the street with a bucket full of chalk for people passing by to contribute. I’m not going to tell you what I wrote because it was way too cliché and I’m embarrassed. I can’t think creatively under pressure.
One of the highlights of my weekend adventure was our spontaneous decision to buy tickets to Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors. It was an incredible show and we got to talk with them afterwards. Ellie Holcomb went to my High School and we were actually in a show together about 2 years ago so it was fun to catch up & chat about that. If you’ve never listened to their music, GO CHECK IT OUT! It’s so good.

This weekend was so refreshing and the perfect getaway from my way too chaotic life. I got back late last night and now I’ve got an entire Sunday to relax and catch up on some things. Right now I’m listening to Ella Fitzgerald sing Christmas music (no shame) and drinking some coffee (typical) —- basically I’m in my happy place.
…Also, I’ve watched two Mary Kate and Ashley movies in the past 36 hours so that in itself makes it a good weekend.
Until next time—
