Last weekend I spent three incredibly relaxing days in Charleston, SC with one of my favorite people and her husband (also a favorite person). When Laurie asked what I wanted to do on the visit I replied "sleep in. late. really late." And this basically set the tone.
The downside of living in DC is that everyone always leaves you, the upside is you always have a place to stay . . .
* Pickled okra. I could go on and on about how this is the most fantastic food ever. But you're either in or you're out. Some people never understand true beauty.
* Oktoberfest at Closed for Business. Because everyone needs to drink at 2 in the afternoon. Until about 6 at night. Obviously.
* Dinner at Husk. I've wanted to eat there ever since I read this article in the New Yorker two years ago. And it was worth the wait. Absolutely incredible.
* Homemade bbq and collard greens coupled with HGTV marathons (wow, those Property Brothers are truly amazing, as is Jon's cooking).
* An almost hurricane that came and left in the middle of the night. No damage done.
* Strolling the bayou of Middleton Place (more pics to follow).
* A long walk on the beach on Kiawah Island (with birds, oh so many birds).
* Facetime with home (wow, this really is the best invention ever. Not sure why it took me so long to catch on).
And, most importantly, a whole weekend with one of my best friends. I know how happy she is there. And this makes me happy. But sometimes I still miss her like crazy.
HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND EVERYONE! (And if you have a chance, I highly recommend sleeping in. Sleep really is all sorts of awesome).
