If there’s one thing I know very well about myself, it’s that I’m not much of a spontaneous person. As in, I’m not at all. I like plans and organization and plenty of time to get ready. But when Kiel texted me last week saying they were making an impromptu trip to Charleston and asked if I wanted to tag along, I said yes. I hesitated only for a second to ensure I’d be back on time for my flight to Bermuda on Friday morning, but otherwise just decided to make it happen. It was a very out of character thing for me to do, but honestly? Kinda fun.
The best part was that they were going to road trip down to Charleston in a giant RV, picking me up in Connecticut along the way. I’ve never traveled in an RV before, and I’m glad I can say I have done it… although I think it’s one of those “once in a lifetime” kind of events. The drive was quite long, even being in a spacious bus.
We got to the rental house around 2 am, and after a short night’s rest, we decided to explore downtown Charleston a little bit. I haven’t been in years, and I loved revisiting some of the cutest places in town, like Rainbow Row. The houses are all painted unique colors, and they really do pop against the southern sky!
We were all craving some sun, and we’ve been lucky to get quite a bit of it already, but it’s still a little cooler when the sun goes behind the clouds. I had randomly picked up this blouse (it’s on sale for under $30 right now!!!) and it ended up being the perfect choice for our day of exploring. It comes with that (removable) tie– loved the opportunity for an extra bow.
It’s been kind of nice to take it easy down here. I’ve loved quietly working outside in the mornings on the screened in porch. I think we’ve all been tempted to consider moving down here for the winter months. The sunshine and warmth are just so nice right now. It’s the perfect (and welcomed) change of pace and scenery.
