A day of shopping (and eating!) in Charleston, South Carolina

Hi and happy Friday! I still don't have my project photos because I did absolutely no crafting yesterday. Some of our all-time favorite family members came down from Chicago for a visit, so we spent the day enjoying their company. Our first stop: Charleston's Historic City Market for a little shopping. I didn't buy anything for myself, but I picked up some adorable little crocheted finger puppets for my grandkids. I was truly thankful for this purchase later in the day (they came in handy with my grandson at dinner!)

It wasn't long before we worked up an apetite. We opted to eat dessert first, so it was on to Kaminsky's for a decadent treat! I snuck a bite of my son's butterfinger cake, but my favorite was my daughter's mixed berry cobbler.        

After dessert we felt the need to walk off a few calories on King Street with a bit more shopping. I once again managed to avoid the temptation of buying for myself, but ended up with a cute purse for my sweet grandgirl. It's nearly impossible to say no when she gives me her huge, sad kitten eyes!

Our final destination and the perfect ending for our day: dinner at A.W. Shuck's! Between everyone in our group of ten, I think we sampled all the best items on the menu.        

As this wonderful day comes to a close I am thankful for the time spent with loved ones, the laughter we shared, and the memories I will hold dear to my heart.

Thank you so much for sharing your time with me! I hope your day is filled with laughter, love, and joy!
