Southern Living – Taste of Charleston
Have you seen the cover of Southern Living Magazine’s October issue?
It’s me, it’s me!
This is more like it!
Lucky, lucky me – I was invited to attend this event as a guest of Southern Living!
IMAGINE THE E-MAIL – From: Southern Living ~ To: ME.
Okay, I thought, who’s messing with me?! After a few back-and-forths with the PR Director, turns out it wasn’t a mistake. Permanent blushing for days, y’all.
The event was over 2 days; I went on Sunday while my parents and some friends went on Saturday. Lemme tell you, we all had a ball and cannot wait to go again next year (with the hubs in tow)!
Here are some amateur pictures taken on my amateur camera by this
amateur photographer lame photo-taker.
Never mind the presence of a million yummy local restaurants…I was all up in the Southern Living “Village.”
Luckily my awesomely talented non-amateur photographer friend, Nicholette, met up with me and took these beauties. Thank you, Nicholette!
Are you photographically-challenged? If so, contact Nicholette so she can take some pretty pictures for YOU! =)
Favorite parts of the day, you ask?
1. The setting
2. Shag dancing lessons (watching only, no shag twinkle-toeing for me)
3. Good company
4. The presentation on how to “Set a Southern Table” by Kimberly Schlegel Whitman. Did you see the gorgeousness in the first slideshow? If not, you MUST go back and look!!! Ms. Whitman had AWESOME ideas, was gorgeous (duh), and was super sweet (yes, I got to MEET HER!)
Here she was, doing here thang!
Thank you, Southern Living, for having me as your guest! My l♥ve for you is beyond words!!!
