About a week ago Sean and I embarked on one of our longest road trips to date... a seventeen hour car ride to the beautiful city of Charleston, South Carolina. This trip came about when we decided to celebrate our six years of togetherness a month earlier this year because of our busy schedule for April. After surviving a very brutal winter up here in Wisconsin, Charleston truly became paradise the minute we drove in. With its temperature in the 80s, sunshine, palm trees, and the Atlantic Ocean, how could it not?
We stayed in a beautiful upstairs apartment inside of a late Victorian château in the Historic District. Located just two blocks from the famous King Street and within walking distance to the docks. The day after we got there Sean had a big project to finish so I got to do a bit of solo exploring. That mostly consisted of quite a bit of shopping at the City Market and checking out a couple art galleries. When I got back to the apartment the project had been submitted so Sean was ready to explore and I was more than eager to show him around. I put on the dress I had just bought a couple hours before and we set out for a stroll on the boardwalk. We got to see Rainbow Row, explore some alleys (seriously, even the alleys are breathtaking), and catch a stunning sunset. After dinner at the Fleet Landing we just walked around till the wee hours of the morning. You can be sure no morning alarm was set for the next day.
