Since Valentine's Day last week was on a Tuesday, we obviously had to play kickball. Mike sent flowers to my office (on Monday) and we went to happy hour at one of our favorite spots on King Street: Basil. We were never really fans of Thai food before moving to Charleston, but this place is amazing!
recipes tab when we're looking for something to cook or bake. The only downside is that many of the recipes are on the older side 3+ years ago, and my photography skills weren't exactly the best. Now, when I use any of those recipes, I like to go back and take a few new photos to add to the post. Last week, Mike made orange swirl cake to bring to a neighbors' dinner, and I was glad to add in a few, less yellow, photos.
There has been so much blogger fun going on in Charleston. Last month, I had my first attempt at sewing at Five Eighth Seams, and Liz gave a fantastic Instagram talk. Thanks to Ashley for the great shots! This month's event took place at Vestique (this was actually our second event there). We learned about creating flat lays, and I worked with Cambron to create our own with items found around the store. I also had the best time last week at a blogger kickoff party for SEWE. Lionel the Hedgehog was there, and the Restoration Hotel had a couple of fantastic pop-ups to check out for the weekend.
Southeastern Wildlife Exposition), it is one of my favorite weekends all year. We love watching the Birds of Prey show in Marion Square and all of the cooking demonstrations downtown!
Revelator. I'm working on a post of my favorite places for coffee in the city, and I can't wait to share more about this place soon. Their espresso + milk is delicious and all of the pastries come from another local place, Butcher and Bee.
Last, but not least, because the weather has just been too good, here are a couple photos of the city in bloom.
