Last weekend was just THE BEST. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that two of my best friends from Virginia drove to Charleston for a fall girls getaway! We planned this trip weeks ago and it felt like it took FOREVER for it to finally be here. After months and months of traveling […]

Yesterday I shared a recap of the last few months living here in Charleston…but today’s post is by far the most requested!!! As most of you know, I am living with my family here in Charleston right now and if you read THIS post, then you know we landed our DREAM home here. It was […]
