Favorites Friday: Vacations

Jen at A Girl in Pearls &  A Boy with Toys has introduced a new blog feature, Friday Favorites, and invited her readers to join in. On Wednesday she will give a topic, we use that for the subject of our Friday post. This week’s topic is favorite vacation spot.

I definitely have to say my current favorite is Isle of Palms. I love that it’s only two hours away from us so we can run down for a weekend if we want. Unlike a lot of the other beaches in South Carolina, Isle of Palms is not very commercialized, and because it’s pretty small, I don’t think there’s a lot of room for it to ever get that way. It’s also only 20-30 minutes from the heart of Charleston, so you can get your history and shopping fix in without spoiling the calm and peace of the beach.

The Mister and I have vacationed with his family at Isle of Palms for three summers now, and our next trip will be for our wedding, which is only seven weeks away!
