I thought I’d take a few minutes this afternoon to share with you just a few snippets from my travels here in Charleston so far. I flew in last Wednesday to spend a week with my good friend and partner in design-loving crime, Erika Firm of Delphine. While I have a couple of days left in my travels, I’ve already totally fallen in love with this beautiful city. The architecture is heavenly and the food? Out of this world. If …

This summer I have an unshakable sense of wanderlust. All I want to do is travel, explore and adventure the days away. While my current schedule keeps that from being a reality, I am hoping that this fall I can set off on a few grand adventures. Topping my list? A trip to Banff National Park in Alberta with a stay at the unbelievable Fairmont. Seriously, is that place even real? Talk about a dream! Fancy hotels aside, I really …

We started the morning with breakfast at The Front Room at the recommendation of a friend. Breakfast was little silver dollar pancakes stuffed with wild Maine blueberries and several cups …
