hap-bee fall weekend in charleston, south carolina

last friday after work we traveled to beautiful and historic charleston, sc for a weekend of exploring the city with our friends' five week old baby boy, william, while they attended a wedding. we stayed right off kings street at our first boutique hotel, restoration on king - it was a wonderful experience. our room included a living room, kitchen, eating area, two bedrooms, and three bathrooms. it was lovely. and the weather was ideal- we spent almost all day saturday exploring the city- kings street shopping, art galleries on queen, battery park, the market, coffee shops - i always fall head over heels in love with this special place. 

hotel snapshots- very nice and so hospitable. 
lots of little touches throughout the day:
 leaving chocolate covered almonds, setting out robes, turning on the sound machines- & more.
standing in the spot where mr. monaco proposed and i said yes. 

every night at 5pm, restoration on king holds a happy hour with wine, cheese, olives, and beer
followed by cookies and milk at 8pm 
'as sweet as tupelo honey'







so thankful for all of our brave veterans- esp. today
love our beautiful country
land of the free- home of the brave.





such a good boy - he loves to snuggle
every morning our complimentary breakfast was delivered in a basket
you could pick anything you wanted/placed the order on your door the night before 
i stop in this coffee shop, city lights coffee, almost every time i visit-
 the owner is super friendly, coffee is perfect, and i love all of the fun colors
carolina bbq lunch 
such an enjoyable trip with a precious baby boy
thank you for inviting us to watch your little love
we loved every second of it.  
*some boutique snapshots from the weekend coming soon*

  5. Every time you post about Charleston, I want to go right away! We took a cruise out of Charleston a few years ago and had a few hours to explore, but it was definitely not enough time and I vowed that I'd be back for a longer visit. Hopefully we can get down there soon to experience it more in-depth! And it seems that the hotel y'all stayed in this time is perfect for a family with a baby!
