I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving with friends and family! I know I did. We spent the long weekend in Charleston with Edward's family. I went to school in Charleston, and while that fact is more than enough to make it special to me, it's also the place where Edward and I met and later got married. Happy memories abound here, and I took advantage of the gorgeous weather we had to wander around and take a million pictures.
We stayed out at Folly Beach and rented a house that could accommodate all the grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins for Thanksgiving dinner. Few things make me happier than being on the water.
This may sound ridiculous, but the main reason I chose College of Charleston was the city of Charleston itself. The college is in the center of downtown, so you can walk a couple blocks past the shops on King Street right to the Spanish moss-covered heart of campus. It was love at first sight.
There was no question that Edward and I would get married in Charleston, but we didn't immediately know where. After scheduling visits to half the wedding venues in town, Edward made the brilliant suggestion that we find a spot we might actually visit again. That settled it, and we chose the Gibbes Museum of Art. I wouldn't change a thing.
We always manage to sneak away from the family for one date night while we're here, and this year we went back to an old standby, McCrady's. Every time I come back to this city it seems that there are ten great new restaurants to try, but this is still my favorite. Possibly in the world.
How was your Thanksgiving? Did you travel or stay home? Best dish you had?
