Fave read

I'm not much of a reader. I attribute it to the fact that I'm still getting over the abundance of college reading and I find it difficult to focus on reading when I'd rather be multi-tasking (doing something with my hands), catching up on my latest DVR'd TV shows or have someone talking my ear off. Usually its a 5 1/2 or 2 1/2 year old with a urgent need for a drink, a snack or a toy that needs extra attention.

In February my hubby and I were lucky enough to go to Charleston, South Carolina. He had meetings to attend. I got to spend days roaming through the city, taking pictures and enjoying southern hospitality. The first morning of our trip I lined up a photography tour of the city. Joyce led a friend and I through town and helped us capture some great photos of this beautiful city.

By the time I returned to the hotel I was determined to return one day and rent a beautiful home in downtown Charleston for a wonderful vacation. I figure it will give me time to really experience all there is to see and soak up in the beautiful cobblestone streets, the gorgeous architecture, wonderful food around every corner and the rich history that this city has.

Back to reading...I just finished "South of Broad" and its great. I had a tough time putting it down! Pat Conroy does a wonderful job of describing the city and way its citizens live. It was also a treat to read street and house names that I recognized and had visited. So much fun! 
So, if you are looking for a fun summer read and have (or wish to) visit Charleston pick up this book and enjoy. You'll find a wonderful story of friendship in a storied city.
