The Charleston Life

The good life. That's what life in Charleston seems to be like these days... It's chill, it's lively, it's organic and it's relaxing. That would be a pretty easy way to sum up our weekend in the Lowcountry. We spent 3 nights with one of my beasties out on Johns Island, in her adorable little neighborhood. Look how cute her precious house is! {decked out for the Auburn win!}

Saturday {after a culinary display from chief Neal for breakfast} we hit the road for the Southern Ground music festival on Daniel Island. It was a long day... But SO much fun! The weather was perfect... the food was delicious... And the music was on point. For all you Nashville fans, we even got to hear Clare Bowen do a sit-in with Zac. She's so good. :) 

Sunday was tested out the Fat Hen for brunch and if certainly did not disappoint. Everything about this place is super laid back and authentic. I went for the veggie frittata and Jesse splurged on the french toast sausage sandwich. However, the pumpkin muffins and bloody Mary's may have been my favorite part of the meal. If your ever on Johns Island, it's worth a stop in!

After brunch we stopped at Angel Tree for a photo-op. what a beautiful tree!! It is over 400 years old and 187 feet in width... amazing to see. So old Charleston.  

We spent our afternoon at the downtown market and picked up some great finds {posting coming soon}, stopped by the market for some fresh seafood, and cooked up this lil delicacy for dinner... 

So good!! Y'all, Lyns and I even fileted the flounder ourselves... Thank you, YouTube

Thanks for such a wonderful weekend, Hatch's. Miss you so much already!! Sorry for my lack of blogging this week - I'll be back tomorrow to link up with A. Liz Adventures for Five on Friday!

  1. Looks like a fun weekend! And I bet the weather in Chucktown is a lot better in October versus the end of June (the weekend we were there!) Glad you had such a great trip:)

  2. That tree looks incredible! 400 years old? Crazy!

    Loving the recap - it makes me want to go there even more!
