Every year for our anniversary, instead of exchanging presents, we go on a trip.  It is a tradition I hope we can always keep up, even if it is a staycation.  The last two years, we've gone to DC, but this year we found ourselves wanting to go to Charleston.  So glad we picked it!  We stayed downtown at the Mills House, which is in walking distance of everything.  I loved spending lazy afternoons at the hotel, and I loved not having to ride around trying to find parking (which is all I felt like we did our first time to DC!).  We toured Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.  The weather could not be better, without a drop of humidity in the air.  We spent time at the downtown market and pier, took a dungeons and graveyard ghost tour...and of course, ate a lot of delicious food. Brunch at Poogan's Porch and dinner at 39 Rue de Jean were our favorites! Yes, leave it to us to find a French restaurant in Charleston.  We downloaded the Open Table app, which turned out to be a life saver because we could book all of our lunch and dinner reservations through it, and never had to wait for a table.  

All in all, it was a great trip and we had a blast!


  1. My husband and I aren't big gift givers either. We've never officially said it, but my idea is also to always just take a little trip or just do something together each anniversary. We're in the process of planning for our upcoming one. One day we want to visit Charleston. Looks like you guys had a great time!

  2. Well this looks absolutely perfect. So glad you were able to go on the ghost tour. Was it fun?! Charleston is incredible...I'm hoping to go back soon!

  3. The food is Charleston is to die for. So so good. Looks fun!!
