Wormsloe Plantation

History intrigues me. Being in the south, surrounded by so much history was exciting for me. After a little hiccup during our trip, we delayed our voyage further down from Charleston, South Carolina to Savannah Georgia. The sun was shining and we had just finished our walk around the beautiful city and went on to…

Sand and Sunsets

I love sunsets, the colors of the sky as the sun darkens to a dark orange glow. I love it.  We were lucky enough to visit Kiawah Island in South Carolina, and to see some amazing sunsets while we were there. You have seen a few on my instagram, but I thought I would share…

Angel Oak

Do you ever just sit back and think about what life would have been like 300-400+ years ago. It would be about 1716 or 1616. There’s a reason I’m asking you this, don’t worry. There’s a tree just outside of Charleston South Carolina, that is about that age. It’s been there for a really long time…

On Top of the World

Autumn Adventure

Exploring and Relaxing are the same thing

When the works starts to pile up, when the nights start to get a little restless, that’s when you know it’s time for a “you” day. A day just to take time for yourself. Creating your own happiness.  I’ve had a very strange last couple of weeks. I can’t really describe it to be honest….

Autumn Stroll

I know this post might seem a bit late into the season already, but hey I’ve been busy!  I love this time of year. The weather usually isn’t too hot and it isn’t too cold! I can bring out my comfy sweatshirts and big scarves.  The leaves look so pretty with their orange, red and…
