Beach Week Recap

Hey y'all! Hope everyone had a great week! I am back from Charleston after a fantastic week! The weather was nearly perfect (it rained one day) and I got to see some wonderful friends and I came home with a tan!

Here are the highlights in pictures...
Folly Beach Pier
I have known these two since I was 5 years old but I have not seen them in 20+ years.
It was so incredible to see them again and get to know each other as adults.
My friend's adorable daughter Elle... we totes bonded :)

Probably one of the best pics of HW ever.
We started and ended every morning with a 2-3 mile walk on the beach.
I was lucky and got to go sailing twice on this vacation. My most-favorite thing to do in life 
What's a trip to Charleston without a pic of the bridge?!
yes, my manicure matches my hat :)
Checking out the Battery and downtown Charleston on beach cruisers. 

My best friend from Dallas came to spend a few days with me - we had a blast!

Sail #2 - this time with Jenn! 
King Street in the rain
Since there was a monsoon on Thursday we decided we were in need of a spa day.
I highly recommend The Spa at Charles Place!
As an added bonus, I got to see one of my good friends from VA who was in town for a wedding.
I missed her baby shower a few weeks ago so this was perfect!
Jenn and I visited the Angel Oak Tree which is over 1500 years old! So cool!
the "end" of Folly Beach
Figured y'all needed one more pic of Harry Winston at the beach...
obviously, he was the King of the Beach.
Everywhere we went people wanted to stop and see him :)
While the trip was amazing, I did receive the sad news that my mom's mom "Jeano" lost her 15-year
battle with Alzheimers. She was such a fun and spunky grandmother and always had a zest for life.
This is a picture from last summer when I got to go visit her. I had not seen her in over 10 years
so I feel very fortunate I saw her last summer.
All in all it was a great trip! I got some sun, relaxed, did a little soul searching and goal setting. Now I have one week to get all my business taken care of in Greenville, pack up and head to Nashville for the summer! I need to enjoy my daily naps as much as possible because starting Monday I am back to a working girl! Ewwww! hehe j/k I am pretty excited about earning a paycheck, not gonna lie!
