A couple months ago, I started to get the travel bug. You know – that sudden need to just get in the car (or on a plane) and leave to explore, see a new place…for me, take pictures!! I had such an incredible time traveling to Colombia in February and ever since I’ve wanted to be on the road. I attended Savannah College Of Art and Design in 2009 and loved the whole feel of the historic city so when we got a free week to travel, I knew I wanted to head back south. I hadn’t ever been to Charleston before, so I decided why not?!
The whole trip was pretty last minute and planned in just a few days. We invited my cousin and her new husband to join us and thankfully they loved the idea and we were able to spend new years eve together in this beautiful city!
The funny part is, I was having such an awesome time running around, drinking too much coffee and making memories, I never got out my big camera. This post is just a collection of images from my husband’s and my cell phone, and my cousin Kelly’s pictures! Shout out to Kelly!!
We spent the majority of the drive to Charleston listening to the book Good Call by Jase Robertson. I really loved hearing his and his wife’s story!! I highly recommend it.
Along the way, when we were taking a selfie at a rest top in NC, an older man asked if he could take our picture for us. How sweet!! There were about 5 of the thumb-covered ones but he got a good one too! haha 🙂
Kelly (who clearly planned more than I did) brought her tripod along and took a bunch of group shots of us. I can’t wait to see those! Then we found the coolest Urban Outfitters EVER. I wanted to live inside this store!! Then we walked King St. and admired all the insanely beautiful homes and each of us chose our favorites and imagined who might live there.
Kelly and I decided we were going to buy this yellow and pink home so we wouldn’t have to live so far from each other!
I’m sharing all about the New years Eve Party we attended in my next post – Charleston part 2- stay tuned!
