Charleston Charm

There’s something about Charleston that is hard to describe unless you’ve been there. It’s easy to pick up on certain things such as its history, culture, warm weather and friendly people, but there’s also a certain je ne sais quoi that makes it unique. I’m sure much of it is attributed to the delightful combination of the aforementioned elements, but there’s so much more to Charleston than the casual observer might see.

Rest Awhile – Charleston, SC

As you meander through Charleston, it’s not uncommon to find window boxes overflowing with a variety of colorful blooms. Nor is it uncommon to find beautifully painted shutters, benches beckoning you to take a quick rest, and wrought iron gates bearing 1/2 addresses reminiscent of times past. These are some of the nuances that make Charleston one of my favorite places in the world, and I feel truly blessed to live here.
