Guest Post: I Heart Charleston
I wouldn't be surprised if Olivia's blog, everyday musings, was responsible for an increase in tourism to Charleston. The girl loves her beautiful town and it's apparent. I hope one day Olivia and I can discuss historic southern cities over a batch of her caramel sea salt brownies.
It's no secret that I'm a little obsessed with Charleston. The first time I visited Charleston as a little girl, I decided I would live there one day - and I'm happy every day for sticking with that decision.
The reasons why I love Charleston are infinite, it's hard to know where to start. I love the cobblestone streets, mossy oak trees, world-class food, drawn-out Southern accents, colorful buildings, wrap-around porches, marshes, random summer days in February...
...and I could go on. Charleston is a fairy tale-esque, timeless city, while staying vibrant, energetic, young, and artistic. Everyone in Charleston seems to share a similar enthusiasm for life.
The feeling Charleston evokes is ineffable, but once you experience it, you never want to leave. The low country just has a way of seeping into your soul.
