Carolina on my Mind

My mom and I flew to Charleston, SC for a girls trip last weekend. Back when we planned the trip, we didn’t realize it was Mother’s Day weekend, but it turned out to be a lovely surprise! It was so nice to have a weekend to relax and spend quality time with my mama. We only live two hours apart, but we’re both busy and it was a luxury to have a whole long weekend to just relax together and catch up. We stayed at an AMAZING hotel, ate at some really yummy restaurants, took a horse drawn carriage ride, chartered a boat out to a barrier island with a lighthouse, and of course did a lot of shopping! Charleston is a beautiful city, steeped in history. And did I mention that everyone is so darn NICE? Totally refreshing. I would highly recommend it for a girls getaway or romantic vacay!
