Earlier this month, I headed to South Carolina for some rest and relaxation with my family and Will. We celebrated the Fourth of July, and Will and I hung back to have some time for the two of us. It was a much needed break and helped me refocus on what is important to me.
On the Fourth of July, we started the day off with what can only be described as an epic golf cart parade. The photo below will give you a small taste of what it entailed. My little brother Jackson and his friends decorated and rode the golf cart in the parade, while Will and I followed along on bikes. During the parade, neighbors set up on their lawns to bombard the golf carts with water guns, water balloons and hoses. The golf cart drivers and riders also arm themselves with water guns and buckets of water, so it becomes a bit of a battle on the road. It was extremely hot, however, so everyone was more than happy to get soaked during this all-American experience. After that we made a fireworks run, enjoyed the beach, cooked out and watched some fireworks before setting off our own–of course!
Will and I enjoyed paddle boarding, walking along the beach and cooking out. In addition to watching Indepence Day fireworks go off up and down the coast, one of my favorite nights was when we made Oysters Rockfeller on the grill – SO delicious. We loosely used this Sweet + Sour + Savory recipe. Thankfully Will and I use recipes in the same way — as guidelines to be utilized as we see fit!
We also enjoyed adventuring over to the historic town of Georgetown and Pawley’s Island. The charm of South Carolina beach towns is something I’ll always love as it reminds me of my childhood. And of course the whole beach week zoomed by as all great vacations do.
Until we see you again!
