If you have never been to Charleston, go.
Dan and I went to the Holy City for New Years, seeing three shows that my favorite band were playing in town over the holiday. Ill talk more about Jump Little ChildrenÂ in tomorrows post so Ill just leave it at that for today.
Charleston has been a big part of our lives curiously, especially since we have never lived there. First, it was the mecca for Jump Little Children fans since that is where the band lived when they were touring and we all know that home shows are the best shows. Every year they did New Years Eve set of shows and all the fans would descend on Charleston for those, including of course, me. Next, when we were beginning our journey into wedding photography, we considered moving to Charleston since my mentor and friend had hired me to be her intern and second shooter for the year. We didn’t end up moving because she eventually moved to Greensboro NC, however I did spend a lot of time in Charleston with her while working. Those were both really significant things in my personal story so Charleston will always hold a special place in my heart. ALL of that AND its a really amazing place to visit in the first place… so… GO!
While we were there we visited Ft Sumter, Middleton Place, Folly Beach, Downtown… and of course lots and lots of delicious restaurants and bars. My favorite part of the trip was that while we were there for 5 days, we got to stay with fiveÂ different friends from all different parts of our life stories. It was so social and refreshing and fun.
