Charleston In December


One of my favorite parts of visiting Charleston last weekend, other than the Jubilee, was truly getting to see it in its finest ... all decorated for Christmas.  I truly love Charleston and it has the same imprint on my heart as Savannah does since we visited both of them for the first time on our honeymoon.  I have been to Charleston many times since but I think seeing it in December might have been the best visit yet.  There is something about the magic of December paired with a favorite city and a favorite friend that just makes it incredibly special.





Before and after we attended the Jubilee my friends Krystine and Kristen and I ate, drank and shopped in downtown.  We walked the streets all dressed in their finest greens and twinkle lights and we took in the sights and sounds of this magical city.  Starting with lunch on the roof Friday and finishing Sunday with a walk around the battery every single thing we did was fabulous.  I have some fabulous recommendations for you at the end of the post along with a fun video of our time together in Charleston which I hope you will love.

Just a snippet of our visit ...
