Weekend Recap: Charleston

For once, this weekend didn't involve traveling. Whit and I had a weekend well spent right here in Charleston. I must say, it was one of the most relaxing weekends I've had in a while. I've always appreciated where we live, but sometimes life gets so busy we forget to stop and take in our surroundings. So that is exactly what we did.

We enjoyed a nice little DIY wine and cheese happy hour on our back porch Friday evening. I also made a delicious salad for dinner, which I will be sharing the recipe for this week.

Shop some of my favorite wine and cheese happy hour essentials at the bottom of this post.

Saturday we made our way out to The Sanctuary on Kiawah Island. It was absolutely gorgeous. So luxurious, that we decided that we need to have a "stay-cation" here sometime in the near future. 
We explored the island by bike.

The scenery was worth all the pedaling. 

After cruising around in the 90 degree heat, we couldn't get to an ice cold beverage quick enough. So, we drove over to Seabrook Island which is on the other side of Kiawah. 

We stopped in Red's Ice House at Bohicket Marina for a little afternoon pick me up.

To round out what ended up being a perfect day, we ended the evening with a dinner date at The Obstinate Daughter. I have been wanting to go there for the longest time now, and I must say, it was worth the wait.  It was so enjoyable, that it deserves it's own blog post. 

It was great to spend some quality time with the hubby, especially while enjoying the sights and sounds of what the area has to offer. 
By the time Sunday rolled around, it was time to relax. 
You can't beat sunshine, a clear blue sky, sand in your toes and the ocean.

Shouldn't all weekends end like this?!



  1. did you get the blue striped blanket from the popsugar must have box? i think i have the same one!! oh i so wish i had eaten at OD before i moved!!

    1. My co-worker gave it to me and I believe that is where she got it from. It's so versatile! You're just going to have to make a trip back to Charleston to check out some of the delicious new places that have popped up. :)
