Holy City Affair

I am one of those few lucky people to call the lowcountry of South Carolina my home.  Now residing in the Holy City, I grew up only an hour south of Charleston.  Charleston was tagged the Holy City due to the mass amount of churches on the downtown peninsula.  The skyline is dotted with tall, graceful steeples. I grew up surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenes imaginable.  Sometimes, I take this wonderful place for granted because it has become so everyday for me.

As I have made my way through the blog world, I have discovered that everyone is in love with Charleston.  Some are ready to pick up and move here or waiting to return for a weekend visit.  This love affair with my town has made me come to appreciate it more.  I want to share this beautiful city with everyone - seasoned local and weekend visitor alike.

I am not a skilled photography, but Olivia, Everyday Musings, is.  Here are some of my favorite shots she has taken of Charleston.

If I could choose any city to eat my way through, it would be Rome.  A close second would be Charleston.  The variety and quality of restaurants in Charleston is unreal and equally delicious.  My friend, Sarah, has started a blog dedicated solely to the food of Charleston.

Are you crushin' on my city, too!?!  If so, come on down for a visit!
