I mentioned in a previous post that The Mr. and I would be heading out of town for the last 5 days of our time here in New York City. I'm so excited to announce that we're visiting...
This trip will be special for us on many fronts. First of all, neither of us have ever been to a proper southern state before. Actually, the only time I've been south of Washington DC were 2 trips to Orlando for UDA Dance Team Championships in high school. Obviously, DisneyWorld is not exactly what a southern belle would consider "the South". As you can imagine, this is a pretty exciting first for me.
Second of all, we're heading there to attend a wedding- a proper, old-fashioned southern wedding. One of our wedding ushers is getting married, and I don't think I could be any more happy for him if I tried. Though I'm sure I won't be seeing any blush and bashful color combinations this weekend, I am super excited to see what a real southern wedding is all about. I'm expecting class, style, gorgeous flowers, lots of events (we've had to RSVP to 3 different events already!) and some of the most amazing hair I've seen in my life. (Or am I supposed to call it "sway"? I'm a novice here, GRITS, help a sister out...) I just hope I can perfect my hair poofing before I get there.
Though the wedding is our main purpose for the trip, there is also 1 small detail that'll take place while we're in Charleston...
Our First Wedding Anniversary!!!!
It absolutely blows my mind that come April 18th, we've been married for an entire year. It's kind of funny to look back on- in the last 12 months, the only true vacation The Mr. and I have been able to take was our honeymoon! Otherwise, every major trip we've taken in the last 12 months has been related to our close friends' weddings. We have *LOVED* celebrating such a large milestone with so many of our closest friends, don't get me wrong! But- I can't tell you how excited we are to head off to a destination without a bridesmaid dress or groomsman tux in our suitcase! We'll be able to soak up every minute of the trip, without having to worry about being "on the job".
Now- it's time for advice! I know that many of you have visited Charleston, or perhaps even live there now. What are the *do not miss* activities we have to hit this weekend? I've been just a liiiiittle busy these last two weeks (*wink*), and haven't had the opportunity to do any research about our destination. Please- help me figure out what to do in this gorgeous southern city!
