A couple months ago, I started to get the travel bug. You know – that sudden need to just get in the car (or on a plane) and leave to explore, see a new place…for me, take pictures!! I had such an incredible time traveling to Colombia in February and ever since I’ve wanted to be on the road. I attended Savannah College Of Art and Design in 2009 and loved the whole feel of the historic city so when we got a free week to travel, I knew I wanted to head back south. I hadn’t ever been to Charleston before, so I decided why not?!

The whole trip was pretty last minute and planned in just a few days. We invited my cousin and her new husband to join us and thankfully they loved the idea and we were able to spend new years eve together in this beautiful city! Historic Charleston Photography

The funny part is, I was having such an awesome time running around, drinking too much coffee and making memories, I never got out my big camera. This post is just a collection of images from my husband’s and my cell phone, and my cousin Kelly’s pictures! Shout out to Kelly!! She has the cutest blog HERE. Check it!
