staycation 2011 (aka why we're in love with charleston)

Andrew graduates from Power School at the end of this month (yay!) and he'll have a few weeks off before his next phase of training. We had talked about trying to go somewhere during that time but realized that we'd rather stick around here. It'll save us money and there are so many things on our Charleston bucket list, we should try to cross them off while we have the time.

Also, I love my bed. And hotel room floors give me the heebies.

And so the staycation was born.

Why not spend a week exploring this place a little more? We've been living in this beautiful southern town for almost eight months. And we have really, really loved it.

We love how beautiful the mansions are.


And how you can peek into private gardens.


Or sit on a bench to watch the sailboats.


We love the culture.


We love the hidden parks, where we plan to take a blanket and our Rudy and pack a lunch.


And then there's the food. Oh heavens. There are at least 10 restaurants on our list and we plan on trying as many as we can. That will probably be our favorite part.


We're all about taking advantage of our time together these days. Who knows when we'll be able to do something like this again? I don't know, but I'll pretend like it's never. And then every little thing will feel even more awesome than it really is.

Good strategy.

  1. That is such a great idea. It's crazy how, even living in Charleston, there seems to be an endless list of things to explore and do!

  2. Oh my, I heart Charleston! It's my most favorite city in the south!

  3. My husband & I absolutely love Charleston! We've been several times and have always had such a wonderful time. I can't wait to go back!
