Roaming the streets of Charleston makes me happier than I ever thought possible. I love the history of this town. The character. The laid back, happy lifestyle. I could walk around the historic district for days. All the colorful, sweet architecture reminds me of what I want my life to be.
I took a carriage tour with Isaac (Red) last year and the tour guide talked a bit about the side porches. He said these beautiful porches with solid front doors at the front are a statement of wealth as well as hospitality. When the doors are left open, it’s a sign that the neighbors are welcome to visit, have a glass of sweet tea on the porch and watch the carriages go by. When the door is shut, the owners would like privacy and guests should return at another time. I now, of course, want a side porch with a big beautiful door more than anything. That lifestyle sounds like heaven!
Until I strike it rich and have my dream of owning a southern home in the historic district, I’ll look for other doors of opportunity. Just to work and live in this amazing place is more than I could have asked for.
I’d love to hear from you! What are your favorite things about this gorgeous city we call home?
