My love and I are back from a little getaway to Charleston, SC last week.  We had the BEST time!  My little love spent a week between both sets of grandparents and had a blast, as well.  Charleston is probably the most lovely, charming town I've ever been to.  We loved every minute that we were there. 

The first place we went to was The Tattooed Moose.  It was on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and it was so...good!  We split the Duck Confit sandwich with duck fat fries--amazing!  My mouth is watering just typing it.  It was a fun, eclectic little place to eat.
That night we walked around and just checked everything out.
You can't tell, but there was this gigantic bridge behind Brian.

A lady took this picture of us - my camera just couldn't focus very well
The next morning, we headed to Magnolia Plantations. beautiful!

I felt like we were in a Nicholas Sparks book.

We loved all the Spanish Moss.
Gorgeous flowers everywhere.

We were right at the end of Azalea season, so most had already bloomed, but there were a few bushes lagging behind.
Foxglove -maybe?
I love this gigantic Oak
We spent a couple of hours there and just marveled at everything.   Beautiful flowers and giant trees everywhere.
The next day we walked around the city again.
Rainbow Row - the houses were just too beautiful.
There were a lot of cobblestone streets
Big mansions along the water.  

We loved all the history behind the city. 
Pineapple Fountain
The whole entire city smelled like honeysuckle.  We couldn't breathe in the fragrance in enough.  It was covered on nearly every fence--just smelled so good.  
My 33rd birthday was on the 3rd and Brian  made us a reservation at 82 Queen and it was so...delicious!!  Probably one of the three best meals we've ever had.  A guy Brian works with recommended it to us and I'm so glad he did.  
Despite the picture above, the place was sprawling.  There was indoor seating or outdoor seating.  I can't believe I didn't get a picture of us.  We actually sat in this tiny room covered with windows on 3 sides.  
The city completely stole our hearts.  If Brian ever had a job opportunity there, I think we'd jump on it in a flash.  Such a fun little getaway for my birthday and babymoon.
