I am back in Charleston after a truly wonderful week away. I felt sentimental driving (being driven) down the streets I grew up on, going to my favorite ice cream and seafood spots, walking along the beach. We had the best week. So much beach time, so much family time, watching my niece and nephews play together… I wish I could bottle it up. Every time I leave the Cape, my heart breaks a little bit. It’s the same way I feel when I leave New York (I always cry a little?). At the same time, I was also eager to be home in Charleston and back into my house and my routine. All of the emotions! I hope you have a great weekend.
