Charleston Blooms with Sarah & Duke - June 2019

Spring in Charleston is easily one of my most favorite times of year! It's when everything really starts to come alive - flowers begin to blossom all over town, there are people out and about, and rooftop/outdoor dining season is upon us (without being unbearably hot!). The blooms here in Charleston are one of my most favorite parts about spring. Wisteria starts to take shape, roses begin to climb up the palmetto trees around colonial lake, and jasmine seems to peak around Charleston's colorful homes.

Perhaps one of my favorite weekend activities is taking a leisurely stroll around the downtown historic district with Duke and soaking up all of Charleston's beauty! Every time we take a walk, it is surprising to uncover another hidden gem of a home or garden - Charleston really does have the quaintest little streets! Rainbow Row and Tradd Street are definitely my top picks when it comes to colorful houses and doors. And let's not forget Charleston has the most beautiful parks! From Waterfront Park with the famous Pineapple Fountain, to Hampton Park and it's abundance of Spanish moss and wonderful flowers! You really can't go wrong when finding an amazing place for an afternoon stroll.

Duke and I usually like to start our spring weekends with coffee and biscuits at  Callie's Hot Little Biscuit and spend some time shopping King Street before venturing further downtown for some exploring! King Street is especially fun on Second Sundays - the second Sunday of every month; where the street completely shuts down and vendors and visitors alike spend the day shopping, mingling and eating outside!

There are so many cute rooftop bars that allow you to sit, have a drink, and really take in the city from a different viewpoint.  The Watch, with it's beautiful view of the church steeples and Ravenel bridge is definitely a favorite! After we are all walked out, it's nice to sit outside and enjoy a leisurely dinner at one of our favorites, Leon's Oyster shop! If we feel up to it, we end our day down by the Battery enjoying a perfect sunset!

There is nothing quite like visiting a seaport town; where rich maritime history is so preserved- it’s like a step back in time!...I recommend grabbing a bite to eat at Rusty Bellies and ordering some Floridian lobster tails for dinner. If you’re a Maine lobster lover be advised- you may be converted.

But that’s the beauty of an adventure: you’re never really lost but once you’ve found a familiar path again, you realize distinctly what you just experienced. And fortunately, you’re never the same person you were before you began.

Fresh Off The Farm with Catherine Rau - May 2019

This year, I found spring at a local family farm in Pennsylvania. Stepping out of my car I was greeted by the rolling green pastures, whispering willows, and a few honks “hello” from the resident geese. There’s something so rejuvenating about farms the way they truly take you back in time. Tickling your senses, farms are havens of nostalgia, relics of American heritage...
