A Southern Thanksgiving

For Milo’s first Thanksgiving, we wanted to celebrate with both of our families. We spent the afternoon with my family on Thanksgiving day and stuffed ourselves with delicious turkey, sweet potatoes, and my mom’s easy homemade cranberry sauce. The next morning, we hopped on a plane to enjoy the holiday with Matt’s family in Charleston, South Carolina.

I love Charleston. It’s one of my favorite places. I love the easy going vibe, the innovative food scene, the colorful homes, the palm trees, the marshlands, and of course all the streets lined with oak trees and moss.

Low Tide Brewing, John's Island

While we were in town, we visited a few breweries (Low Tide Brewing and Revelry Brewing Co.), enjoyed some delicious BBQ at Home Team (their wings are so good), drank margaritas at Taco Boy (love their patio!) and ate brunch at Butcher & Bee. On our last night, we ate on the patio at 167 Raw. It’s one of my favorite restaurants in Charleston at the moment. I love their shrimp tacos, but we tried the ceviche this time and it was so good.


We hosted a turkey fry at my sister-in-law’s house and there was so much amazing food. I’m still full thinking about it! Milo snuggled with his great-grandmother twice, which was so special. The last time Matt’s whole family saw Milo was in September and he was only 3 months old. At almost 6 months old, he’s such a different baby. He’s so engaged and smiling all the time. It meant so much to see them experience his fun-loving personality at this stage.

We’ll be back in Charleston this March and I’m already counting down the days…
