Plaid on Plaid on Stripes

There are few things about Charleston that I like more than walking around downtown on a pretty day. Two weekends ago, my mom and aunt were in town visiting and we had a beautiful Sunday afternoon shopping along King Street and walking along the Battery.  When we weren't in the sun, it was a bit chilly, so I grabbed a coffee and threw on one of my plaid blanket scarves for a little more warmth. But once we got in that Carolina sun, the scarf went in the bag and I found myself wishing I had ordered an iced latte.

While it has been a bit unsettling at times to pick up my entire life and move to a new city, it's days like Sunday that make me appreciate the opportunity to live in such a beautiful and charming place. And it's spending time with my family that reminds me that I have such an amazing support system and a group of people that will forever be there for me. 

Sometimes it takes a jarring event to change your perspective, but once that flip switches - if you're lucky - you'll realize that life is too devastatingly beautiful to not appreciate at least a tiny bit of every day.

  1. Love it! I just posted about plaid today too :)

  2. I can so relate to moving far away and missing family! Living in a great place like Charleston probably makes it a little easier.... I'm definitely jealous! haha
