Life Lately | F is for February & Food

Lately I've been feeling like there's not enough time to get everything done that I would like. I haven't had much time to devote to my blog, chores around the house, cooking, planting my spring flowers, the list goes on. It gets especially harder as the weather gets nice and all I want to do is spend my free time doing fun things outside. I can't complain though, life has been busy, but in a good way. And my robust calendar is by choice. I've been enjoying attending events, spending time with friends and family and just staying busy socially. With that being said, I thought I would share a look at what February looked like for me through the lens of my iPhone. There were too many fun things that took place not to share. 

First and foremost, we now own a boat! Boats in Charleston are like taxis in New York, they are everywhere. It was around 40 degrees the day we got it, but that didn't stop us from taking it out. 
We reminisced on the old college days at a Corey Smith concert at the music farm. The only difference in then and now is we were much less intoxicated and made it home much earlier.
Whit and I had the pleasure of attending an amazing event called Outstanding in the Field. The full recap can be read  here
Cru Catering hosted a fun Chinese New Year event at Harborside East
 There were plenty of strong cocktails, delicious eats and fun entertainment.
And this amazing view, which the photo doesn't do justice.
Whit and I celebrated Valentine's the way we know best — Mellow Mushroom pizza! If you haven't had the holy shitake, you're missing out!
And the traditional Krispy Kreme donuts for the Mr.
I went to The Royal American for the first time for a casual happy hour with coworkers.
A group of us spent the afternoon at the Sewe festival in Charleston. There are several events that go on throughout the festival, but we chose to go to the dockdogs event at Brittlebank park.

I changed up my workout a bit and went to a pop up Barre Evolution class at Loft. I also did a little shopping afterwards.
I'm on new kick of trying out different local coffee shops instead of always just turning to Starbucks. Vintage Coffee Cafe is so adorable and their avocado toast with tomato-onion marmalade is delicious! They also have the perfect outdoor seating to enjoy a snack and your caffeinated beverage of choice.
Another awesome guest chef event in the books! Chef Michael Toscano of Le Farfalle prepared a few delicious bites for us at the office. 

Who needs to travel all the way to New Orleans for Mardi Gras when you can celebrate Folly Gras at Folly Beach.
Lots of fun things packed into a short month!
