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.
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.
