Christmas in Charleston

We took a break from all the busy, hectic, must be, must do and snuck off to Charleston on Sunday afternoon.  It was a much needed break and great time spent just with the 5 of us.  Here are some pictures I took of our day:
 Our day started with a visit with the man in red.  My sweet DS2 asked for a Chess set for Christmas and Santa informed us that no one had asked for one of those this year! 
 This lovely gentleman was seen wandering downtown.
 Ahh...empty sidewalks
 Now if this isn't a brilliant marketing strategy I don't know what is!
Simple and Beautiful
 Shopping in Charleston...LOVE it!
 Even with the cold weather we have had lately, there were beautiful blooms to be found.
 There is just something about that water.

Merry Christmas!


  1. Charleston is on my list of places I MUST visit...how beautiful.

  2. Beautiful pictures Michelle, oh how I would love to just "sneak off to Charleston". If I want to drive fifteen hours or so I guess I could but since that isn't going to happen thanks for sharing your day. Merry Christmas.

  3. I am reading a book that centers around Charleston so your post is very timely for me. I've only been there one time and would love to go back. I'm glad that you had such a great day there with your family.

  4. Gorgeous-love Charleston any time of year :) xoxo Merry Christmas!
