It was Love at First Sight ~ Charleston, SC

I fell in Love with a Beautiful Southern Bell ~

Frank didn't mind because he fell in love too.

She wore pink and pastel one day

                                               Was classic and demure the next.

She is host to the most delectable food....
And has gardens that made your knees weak.

She is eclectic and Bohemian with a twist of proper and only the best of southerly manners mixed in.

Yes ~ she truly is a contradiction of herself in every way.
She has a million other lovers but makes you feel as though you belong to her alone.
Sweet Beautiful Charleston, South Carolina

You can visit her by

When I visited S.C. for my nephews graduation from boot camp, I fell in love with the south. SC is one of the most beautiful states I've ever visited, and one day will go back. Thanks for such a great post Terri.
