We’re officially back from our anniversary getaway to Charleston and I can honestly say it was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken. Within the first 20 minutes of driving around the town I could already tell I was going to love it. The pastel buildings, the friendly smiles, the salty ocean breeze, the local businesses lining the streets, and the sweet, southern charm really radiated through everything. It felt so warm and welcoming.
We drove in from Nashville, so we arrived around 6pm and checked into our gorgeous Airbnb to freshen up for our 7:30 dinner reservation at the Charleston Harbor Fish House. Lucky for us, it was Charleston Restaurant Week, so there were all kinds of amazing deals on 3-course meals around the city.

We headed out to the restaurant, which was located in Mount Pleasant at Patriots Point near the Arthur Ravenel Bridge. The drive over the water was so beautiful and happened to be at the perfect time of day. Everything was golden and gorgeous.
We had the perfect table right by the windows overlooking the bridge and the water.
For the first course, I ordered the clam chowder and Steven ordered the watermelon salad. This way we could taste some of each others dishes and get the best of both worlds. Excuse the iPhone quality photos of the food:
We both ordered the Mahi Mahi for our main entrée, and I took a huge bite before I thought to take a photo. I was that hungry and it was that good.
For dessert, I went with the bread pudding and Steven ordered the roasted peach with honey and vanilla ice cream.
We ended the evening with a toast to our first year of marriage. It’s been a fantastic year standing beside my husband and supporting each other through a major move to Nashville, new job endeavors, releasing his new record, and so much more. It felt good to sit back and reflect on our accomplishments and love for one another.
Cheers to the first year.
