history and my honey.

charleston, sc
[click picture for more photos]

really enjoyed our time together.
the history in charleston is so great.
first day we went to the visitor center
and decided
that
we
were
going
to
do
a walking tour on our own.
it was the cheapest [$5 for a book to help us navigate and know some facts]
and it was the most fun because we could talk and stumble together along
the very old
very bumpy
cobblestone/brick walkways.
as i looked all around me at the homes and streets all i could think was "people actually live in these historical buildings and walk these streets!....what would that feel like to be a part of so much history?"
learned some really neat facts.
the old dungeon was cool.
to be where George Washington had been.
to hear the stories.
it was truly awesome!
jeff and i stayed in our sweet little camper.
went out to dinner one night
but
my favorite dinner was the one we prepared ourselves
steamed shrimp
salad
a little wine
cantaloupe for dessert
and
a good game
of
bananagrams [thank you to kim for introducing this fabulous game into our lives].
we really enjoyed each others company and were able to talk without interruption.
it was blissful!

can't wait to do it again!

happy tuesday.
