Southern At Heart

So do you remember THIS POST from a while back?

Well there is a reason that I wanted to love that book. I knew when I was reading it that there was a good chance that we would be moving to the location that the book is based on.

And now I know that is the case.

We're moving to Charleston, SC this summer :)

At Folly Beach this past weekend when we went house hunting.

To say that I'm excited is a GROSS understatement. I'm just totally beyond thrilled right now to be moving back to the South. I grew up in Florida and lived there all my life until we moved to St. Louis 2 years ago. This Southern girl has really missed her Southern drawls and hospitality :)

My husband got a great job offer and it really just feels perfect. I feel so amazingly blessed.

And don't EVEN get me started on the food in Charleston. Here fishy fishy :)

Have you ever been to Charleston, SC before? Any one have any info they can share with me?



  1. So exciting! I'm a little jealous. I've been obsessed with Charleston ever since visiting there last fall. I regularly tell my husband that I want to move there.

    Do you read Olivia Rae's blog Everyday Musings? She went to college in Charleston and takes really beautiful pictures of the city {although she's about to travel to Europe for a while}. She has a link on her About page to her favorite places in Charleston.

  2. @Caiti I do ready Olive Rae's blog but I had never seen the section on Charleston that you mention. I'll have to check that out for sure.

  3. Charleston is so fun! I live in Columbia and get down there every chance I get! The Sprout is an amazing restaurant, so is Hyman's. Best night out place is Mad River! Let me know if you have any more questions about it!

    Thanks Camille! I'm always up for ideas and tips on places to check out!
