I've just spent five days in Kiawah Island and Charleston, South Carolina seeing family and spending a girl's weekend with a great friend from college. She's in Texas and I'm in New York so we picked a place that we both wanted to explore more! Have you heard of Kiawah? I'm surprised at how many people haven't when I mentioned I was going. My extended family has been coming here for almost 30 years. Just 40 minutes from Charleston and a place that's REALLY hard to leave. It's been so wonderful although it's starting to wear on me with so little time at home. I have two days at home before leaving for Nevis in the French West Indies! Cannot wait to really catch up on photos and assignments.
