Change of Plans: 6 AM Coffee Date

Well, we had one of those mornings… The alarm went off at 5:45 AM, we prepared ourselves for the gym and then never made it there. Well, we made it as far as the parking lot, took one look at the building and drove back down the street to Studio Coffee House. Some days, you just need to change it up a bit!

With our recent move and home purchase, we thought it best to find a place close to Charlotte. We chose Charleston, South Carolina. It is a quick four-hour road trip from the Queen City. Charleston Day 1 We arrived at our hotel in the heart of the city ready to see and do everything Charleston had to offer. King Charles Inn was the perfect location for walking to all the tourist spots and best restaurants. The staff welcomed us with an anniversary card, champagne and chocolates. With half the day left to sight see and eat, we chose to browse King Street, walk Historic Charleston City Market and have dinner at Sticky Fingers Ribhouse. They had an entire gluten free menu but my favorite item was the sticky potato skins! It was early…
