Gorgeous, Stunning, Beautiful Charleston

Ok, I don't want to bore you too much with my vacation photos.  But Charleston is seriously beautiful.

Our first full day there, Jason and I grabbed our cameras and ran around the city taking pictures.  It was a Sunday morning, it was early and quiet and not a lot of people were around.  The perfect time to get some great photos!  

Can you say Beautiful, Gorgeous, Stunning?  

Okay, peeps, I am gonna say it: I LOVE Charleston.  Whenever we go somewhere, Jason and I always fantasize about moving there.  Jason looks at branches of his company in the area...we look at real estate....  But Charleston...oh, baby, to think a place that gorgeous is in the United States!  If Jason were to say there was an opening at a branch of his company down there, I would pack my bags faster than you could say, "Bless his heart." ;-)A friend called it mystical.  Another friend, who is well-traveled, has said it is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.  I can't wait to go back.

Not only are the homes and buildings beautiful, but there are fountains and they INVITE you to take off your shoes and go in.  I am NOT kidding.  Of course, the girlies had to do it!!

This next collage could be called: My husband is a goon!  Seriously, he meant to do that.  He kept walking by, pretending he didn't see the fountain and having it hit him in the head and the girls and I were in hysterics.  He will do anything to make his girlies laugh!

I have a serious thing for scrollwork.  Wrought iron makes me swoon.  My knees get a little weak at intricate railings.  I was head over heels when I saw that Charleston has no shortage of this.  And pocket gardens?  My heart skipped a beat at each one.  {Love}

Love that The Hubinator and I share a love of photography

pocket garden!

Can these street signs be any cuter?
I love this color
I think I am in love!

I love the Caribbean colors and the palm trees

sipping my chai and walking around Charleston...what a great day!

Really, when you get all down to it, it's the details; don't you agree?  The little things.  The small touches; geckos and cool street signs, pocket gardens and brick walls with windows, gas lamps, palm trees, topiaries and window boxes.
I can't wait to go back to Charleston!

oh, and
where you can sit and relax with your family and look out over the relaxing, so soothing and calming.
