Does anyone remember when I called on all my Southern ladies for advice on must-sees during our New Year's trip to Charleston? Your recommendations were fantastic, and now it's time to share photos from our trip down South. Husband and I just fell in love with the charming town, and this lady was seriously considering becoming a Southern belle!
I was ecstatic to see all the PINK in the lovely Southern historic architecture. May I move in, si vous plait?
Christmas decorations were still up... white lights make me giddy!
The cuisine was divine, and we enjoyed fine dining at Macintosh, Poogan's Porch, Virginia's on King, and Rue de Jean, and yummy cocktails at Husk's bar, the Pavillion rooftop bar, and the Speakeasy. Did I mention we found a macaroon boutique?!
Sailing on our friend's boat was lovely, and the views of Charleston and Fort Sumter from the water were magnificient!
Shopping on King Street was just as I imagined... it didn't take this lady long to find Lilly and Louis!
Rickshaw rides were our primary form of transportation - perfect to take in the scenery!
The Calhoun Mansion was one of my favorite spots... did y'all know that it was the home used in the Notebook? Photos were not allowed inside, but I took plenty outside... you can take a full tour on their site.
Finally, we had a fabulous time ringing in 2012 with lots of champagne kisses at the Grand Ball held at the aquarium. Happy New Year from Madame and Monsieur Champagne!
