I was born and raised in Southern California, I married a local Charleston boy, and we are now living in Charleston, SC. I went to school for Education and taught preschool for 5 years before marrying my husband. My husband owns his business, making furniture and lighting out of steel, as well as many of the beautiful iron works that are in downtown Charleston. I now work with him running the office side of the company while he oversees the production of the pieces.
Being a California girl transplanted in the south makes me homesick sometimes but Charleston really has a bit of everything. I love being able to go to the beach and actually get in the water without freezing! My husband and I are foodies, we love going out to eat and experiencing different restaurants, which Charleston has so many of; but staying at home and cooking up a delicious meal is just as fun sometimes. I have gotten into running lately and take my dog out in the morning for a jog around the neighborhood, this has also helped me to get to know the people around me. Reading is my other past-time, I love curling up with a good book and getting lost for a few hours. So in the morning you can find me jogging and in the evening you will find me reading!
I love to travel and my favorite place so far has been Australia. I went for 2 weeks and have been wanting to go back ever since. I also loved Aruba, just the idea of an island that is also a desert was very intriguing and interesting to see. Traveling to Europe is on my bucket list, I have never seen it and would really love to!
When I travel I tend to steer clear of the more tourist spots and go somewhere a local has suggested. I feel that you get a better idea of the city you are in that way. Although I usually do one day of tourist activities, "getting my tourist on " as I call it. Photos are wonderful and I can't get enough when I'm traveling, I also like to scrapbook so little mementos are also kept from places I visit. That is why we included different restaurants for you to experience in Charleston, places that aren't touristy and are some staples of ours.
