Charming Charleston

I got to go on the most amazing Girl's Trip. These ladies were my dearest friends when we lived in London and the friendships have been so perfectly made that we needed to see each other as often as possible, even after most of us had moved back to America. That's hard to do when we've got to travel from all over the country to be together but we made it happen!

Because of the nature of this trip, our number one goal was to give ourselves time to chat, chat, chat.
We also determined to do a few other things with only a few days in the South together: to see a plantation, admire the colorful houses, and eat good Southern food.

We visited the Magnolia Plantation, the oldest public gardens in America.
There's nothing more I can say than share these pictures that still don't do its beauty justice.

Our walks and wandering chats were good for the soul. It didn't hurt that the sights were absolutely lovely!

Let's talk about the food really quickly. It's usually my favorite part of a trip and I do quite a lot of research to make sure the fuel to our exploring is as memorable as the sights.

It was my first time in the south so I definitely wanted to try grits and fried green tomatoes. Happy to report that I'm in love with BOTH.

We were either super ready to eat or chatting too much and didn't stop to take many food pictures.

This was from Poogan's Porch though. HIGHLY recommended

Byrd's Cookies
You can go in and taste all of the flavors. Try the Pink Lemonade. It'll knock your socks off! Peach and the original flavors are amazing too.

I hope it's not the last time I get to visit Charleston!
