A Weekend of Love in Charleston

Hi, everyone! I hope you had a good weekend.  We had a family friend in town, and it was so nice to see her and get to do some of our favorite touristy things!  

On Saturday, I had to work, and after that I met up with Jillian and Ally for Jill's birthday at Zia.  I had some delicious enchiladas.  We also stopped back at Jillian's new house to get the grand tour (it's beautiful!!) and see Miss Violet!  After that, Mike and I spent the afternoon at Folly (and made another stop for Mexican at Taco Boy).  We even saw a cute wedding on the beach!  The night ended with DeSano Pizza and the US Open on television.

On Sunday, we headed downtown early for #ChimewithCharleston.  We walked over to Emanuel AME and listened to the service inside.  They had set up speakers outside and closed off the street so that everyone could worship with the parishioners.  It was so nice to come together as a community.  We also spent some time on Market Street and in Waterfront Park.  The afternoon was spent in the A/C and by the pool, with a delicious dinner at home of grilled cheese and our favorite tortellini soup so we could watch the end of the US Open.

Linking up for: Weekend Recap, Weekending, and Monday Madness!

So glad you made it downtown for the chimes! I really wanted to check that out or the bridge last night, but neither fit well into our travel plans yesterday. Hope you have a great week!

My heart has been with Charleston this past week---I am so overwhelmed by all the love! It's beautiful.

And also I SUPER miss DeSano's! :)

My heart sunk when I heard the news in Charleston. Out of all of the places we have had to live, Charleston is the one my husband and I say more times than we can count "it was home". We miss it so much and I am so happy how everyone is handling it there! A truly awful thing no doubt.

My heart has been so heavy for Charleston over the past week, and the people of Emanuel and everyone in the city have been in my prayers. I'm glad to hear that despite the hateful thing that happened there are still celebrations of love happening to show that hate doesn't have the final say. Love that.
Sounds like a nice weekend too--my husband is a big golf fan you we definitely had the US Open on too!

Looks like you got some great weather this weekend! Good to hear the community came together on Sunday to host a service.

I bet that service was moving, from what I heard up here about it. Love surely bonds the city!

Jealous of your special bday lunch and tour - and of course seeing V! Love that you guys were able to stop by the church, also. Great seeing you last week, love!

Ohhh you got to see Jillian and Violet, so awesome! So great to see everyone in Charleston pulling together after such a horrible tragedy. Looks like you had a lovely weekend!
