charleston, sc


Bryan and I recently left Trace at home with my parents and headed to Charleston, SC.
I've been there several times, but this was Bryan's first time there.
I'm going to be totally honest here and say that we aren't very impressed by the area.
It isn't really our seen and it's way smaller than I remember it being.
But it was nice to get away together and I'm sure that we'll definitely go back again at some point!


I'm not sure if it's a good or bad thing, but there's a town called Hanahan very close to Charleston.
Hanahan was my last name up until last year.
It's a name that defined me (still does) and I miss it every damn day.
I actually only changed my last name once I became pregnant... for family unity and all.
So every time that I go to Charleston, I make sure to do a drive-by of the town of Hanahan.
I mean, I feel like a pretty big deal there. Haha!




*If you're southern, please don't get offended by me not liking Charleston. I understand that it's a really unpopular thing to say, but I'm just being honest here. It's very similar to people saying that they don't care for Laguna Beach or San Diego. I don't get offended at all when people don't like towns/cities in socal. To each their own, right?

  1. I cannot believe that you don't like Charleston...how dare you?!!

    LOL - Just kidding! I completely understand, to each their own. We live near Savannah, and actually prefer SAV over Chucktown, but we do love Charleston :)

  3. I mourn the loss the of my last name everyday. That girl with that last name was single and fun, and tan and carefree. I love that you have pictures with your name on a pub and a highschool!

  4. First of all, I am LOVING your hair in the first photo! You are just gorgeous.

    Also, I totally know what you mean about some people liking/disliking certain cities/areas. I know quite a few people who say California just isn't their thing and I get it (even IF it's my favorite place ever.) Like you said, to each their own. At least you gave Charleston a shot! I've never been. The pictures are pretty though!

  8. We lived just outside of Charleston for our first year of marriage and I really liked the area. Rarely though did I venture downtown...I preferred the Mount Pleasant area. How fun that your name was Hanahan...there's a town named after ya ;)

  9. HA!! Love Laura's comment and I'm actually one of the people who isn't a huge fan of San Diego. I think it's cold and foggy and the city just isn't that great. I would rather run up to Orange County and would MUCH rather be in San Francisco.
    As far as Charleston. I love that city but Brad wasn't impressed either. I was highly disappointed in him :(((

  15. I love Charleston SC I am sorry that you do not! But its not for everyone! Glad you was able to enjoy some alone time without Trace!

  16. I love Charleston-but I definitely think it's an east coast thing to love it- my husband who travels for work in SoCal constantly tells me that no east coast waterfront town/city holds a candle to any waterfront place in CA! So I could see the disappointment.
    I am jealous that you and Bryan had a weekend away though!! That sounds nice!
