Life Lately May | Food & Friends

May was a fun month! Here's a little glimpse of some of the things we got into.
When Cinco de Mayo falls on a Friday, there's a natural obligation to celebrate. We kept it simple and enjoyed all the chips, salsa, and cervezas with friends at Mex 1.
Eager to enjoy some time on the water, we had planned to spend a long day on the boat. We were prepped and ready, from the appetizers to the champagne, but the weather wasn't on our side. A cold front came through leaving us with wind and highs just reaching 70, which makes for a chiller day on the water. But that didn't stop us. It ended up being a beautiful afternoon!
You can't beat a Charleston sunset on the water.
One of my best friends came in town for the weekend to celebrate her 30th birthday.
There were cupcakes...
And champagne...
Followed by a relaxing afternoon spent by the pool.
And a delicious dinner at Le Farfalle
The octopus carpaccio is a must!
And the ricotta gnudi is insanely good!
I tried my hand at preparing grilled artichokes for the first time. You can find the full recipe here. They turned out rather nice, if I do say so myself!
My brother and I spend some quality time with my mom on her birthday, inclusive of an afternoon boat ride in the river. 
When your friend comes in town and wants to go on a boat ride but it's too late and it's dark out, you enjoy a glass of wine in the parked boat.
I was so excited I got to try La Morra Pizzeria before they hit the road to Brooklyn!
A group of us rented a house for the weekend at Fripp Island for the Beaufort Charities Golf Tournament. I've decided golf cart life is the way to go!
Fripp Island is such a beautiful area. It's peaceful and quite with water views and an easy way of life. And did I mention the friendly deer?

I finally found time to check out one of James Island's new lunch spots, the Hen and the Goat. Their caprese sandwich was delicious. 
We kicked off Memorial Day Weekend with dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, The Obstinate Daughter
The King's Honey is my absolute favorite cocktail from here...complete with bee pollen! As for the food, it deserves it's own dedicated post. :)
The rest of our weekend was spent with the wind blowing through our hair, salt on our skin and sand at our feet.
And another gorgeous sunset...
