      Happy Sunday to you, friend. Hope you are resting and gearing up for a creative new week. 🙂

    Oh Charleston! Such a special place. During my visit to Charleston I did the very same thing you did, take photos of all the stunningly beautiful doors, gates and wrought iron that adorn all the homes and buildings. You make me want to go back. Hope you got to indulge (despite your strict diet) in some of the yummy southern cookin’ in Charleston while you were there too.

      What a charming holy city it is! I was able to enjoy some seafood, but no fried Southern yum for this girl. It’s a different way to vacation when the food is not at the center of any plans – not at all depressing though with so much eye candy! Also, because of my illness, I get to discover grocery stores and locals. 🙂
