.Favorite Memories of Babymoon {Part 1}.

We've been wanting to explore Charleston for a long time now.  We had planned to for our second anniversary, but we were so busy last fall that we simply ran out of weekends.  So when it came time to plan our babymoon, we knew exactly where to go.  Because we only had a few days there, we wanted to maximize on all Charleston had to offer and that included staying at a bed and breakfast.  G found one that was perfect for us price-wise, it was walking distance to historic downtown, had just enough privacy, and of course was beautiful in its age.  For Charleston activities we relied on recommendations from others in order to avoid the traditional tourist traps and found Olivia's Guide to Charleston very helpful in providing direction to our itinerary.  Our weekend was packed full, but by the end we felt we had a sweet taste of what Charleston held in its inviting arms.

Things to be remembered of the weekend {part one}

.Stopping in Savannah on the way, the place where we went to celebrate our first anniversary, and feeling nostalgic of those early experiences as we passed the Spanish moss trees and our hotel The Marshall House

.Getting to walk everywhere although it resulted in major aches and pains the following days {where we live... we don't walk...we have to drive}.  By walking we were able to really experience the life within the city by immersing ourselves in it.

. Spending time in the spring sun at the Battery.  The 18th century houses and architecture gave us so much inspiration for when we build our own home one day.

I love the photos you've taken of Charleston - it's so fun to see it from the view of a person new to the town. Your eye for photography is fantastic!

I had the best time meeting you both and I will definitely be keeping up with you on your blog!
