you’re killing it with the pics tonight! love it.
Thanks! I had a free night tonight alone, so I went out to Folly with my camera. It was really fun. I think it’s been about five years since I’ve been there at night. And I’ve never had a good enough camera before this year to take good evening photos. In fact, I think this one might be one of my favorites that I’ve ever taken.
This photo is absolutely gorgeous. You’ve captured the essence of a nice southern spring wedding perfectly
Thanks! It’s from a wedding I went to last year on Folly. One of my favorite weddings I’ve been to, actually. The footwear was made by a friend of mine who does really neat homemade rings and things like that. Great day, great memories.

the thing about charleston is that anywhere you live (besides maybe america street) is an ultimate privilege. the entire area is a blessing… and obviously you recognize that. your blog is one of my favorites!
Very true. I realize that anew every day. Thanks, I’m glad you like it! Sometimes I feel like it gets a little stale, a bit repetitive and one-note. Maybe we’ll run into each other near Colonial Lake one of these days without even knowing it.
i just signed a lease on a house right by colonial lake on ashley! i’m so pumped to hang out there and relax.
That’s awesome! Congratulations! I’d love to live downtown, but we’re probably going to end up buying a house on John’s Island or way up north on the peninsula closer to Hampton Park.
Congratulations! Could you tell us the names of the first two?
Thanks! They’re not published or anything yet, so you would never be able to find them at a bookstore (either online or an actual shop), but I hope to one day get published. The first one, that I always say I’ll never let anyone read, is called The Spirit Captive and is set in the world of Japanese folklore, legends and ghost stories. The second one is a modern day surrealist novel called O Son of Good People. I haven’t thought of a title for the new one yet, but it’s a family saga set in medieval Norway.
there’s a restaurant called the glass onion on savannah hwy.. i worked there for a month last year!
I haven’t eaten there yet, but I know of it and have been wanting to go for ages! There’s also the Three Little Birds, another musical reference. And I’m pretty sure Our Glass Cafe is a reference to Lolita.
