Charleston

To celebrate our 14 years of wedlock, Mr. Robinson and I had a getaway weekend in Charleston.  We enlisted one of our favorite couples to join us to visit this great city (which was a first for the hubs and myself).  I’ve always loved T-Town, but I do believe I could relocate to this fabulous Southern city and manage just fine.

Hello, lover.

 

 

Mainly because I would have window boxes to keep me happy.

Yes, please.

We stayed at the Planter’s Inn as part of the Charleston Insider’s Weekend which would put on by Southern Living, Food & Wine, Travel + Leisure and Departures.  We were thankful for our tour guide, Autumn, who led us all around this great city.

This would be the only shot I took with an actual person in it (hello Mike)

While the boys checked out a battleship, or was it a submarine? While they toured something big and manly, Autumn and I took a Behind the Lens Tour with editorial photographer Olivia Rae James via Travel + Leisure.

 

She helped us find some of the best places to shoot in residential Charleston. Thank you, Olivia!

Love the cobblestone streets. T-town, can we do this?

Food you ask? We never had a bad meal the whole time we were there: The Ordinary (with Chef Mike Late) Butcher and Bee, McCradysLunch at L’atelier Le Creuset about Heritage of Southern Food and many more (I’ll look back at my notes). Dirty jokes, restaurants and book titles are three names I can never seem to remember.

Wonderful weekend away with friends for sure. And we even made the 6 hour drive back in time for Britton’s confirmation at 11:00 am Sunday morning….
