Charleston, South Carolina

Jason and I spent the weekend before Christmas in Charleston, South Carolina. Jason performed the wedding of a friend of ours from Kingsport. We truly had the best time away together. The kids stayed in Nashville with their Aunt Tara and my parents. We are so grateful that our families are always willing and able to keep our kids for us.

We rented a car and drove nine hours to the Atlantic Coast. We didn't really mind the drive. We were actually really looking forward to it. We arrived in Charleston around dinner time and went out for dinner at Longhorn. On Saturday we drove around Charleston and walked around downtown. We parked down at The Battery and walked around for about 3 hours. We were fascinated with the historical and antebellum homes on Meeting Street, The Battery and the busyness of King Street. Later that afternoon, we went to the movies and window shopped before the wedding rehearsal. After the rehearsal, we headed over to Barnes and Noble and Starbucks for a quiet and relaxing evening. The wedding ceremony on Sunday was so lovely. They had the wedding outside and it was absolutely beautiful. We headed back home on Monday and got to our house around 10:00 that night.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from Charleston.

The Battery

















If the kids had been with me, I would have snapped a million pictures in front of this brick wall. Seeing as how it was just the two of us, Jason stepped in for me!


I was imagining the countless pictures that I would take of our children in front of this wrought iron fence. Jason really hammed it up for me!
