For the previous decade, we’ve spent Christmas in Palm Springs, however this yr, Alex’s mother moved east, so we headed to South Carolina. It was so stunning! I put some images on Instagram, however figured I’d share some right here too, in the event you’d wish to see…
We stayed in Folly Seashore, a small coastal city about 20 minutes outdoors the town. Have you ever ever been (or do you reside there)? I puzzled if we’d really feel removed from the motion, but it surely truly felt so relaxed and peaceable.
We lucked out with our Airbnb, which had a breezy porch and bed room followers. Additionally, I’d by no means consider portray a front room black, but it surely actually labored. We might additionally stroll to the principle avenue of outlets and cafés, only a couple blocks away.
We soaked up time with Alex’s mother and sister, who folks say seems like former SNL comic Cheri Oteri. Do you see it?
One night, the boys had been thrilled to hire a golf cart and discover the neighborhood.
“Driving a golf cart whereas consuming a Coke with caffeine? Now that is the life,” stated eight-year-old Anton.
You can even hunt for shark teeth on the seashore! (Our Airbnb host beneficial the realm round ninth Road West.)
We largely cooked at dwelling, however one night time, we went out to dinner on the Post House Inn. How fairly is that eggshell blue exterior?
The lodge bedrooms are proper up the steps. Staying in a single day should really feel so homey and romantic.
We additionally spent quite a lot of time simply “knocking round,” as Alex says. We might chill on the Airbnbs, taking part in Pictionary or making up video games of Would You Rather.
One such night time, the boys acquired in hassle for arguing, and I despatched them to the bed room to chill off. A couple of minutes later, Toby emerged with this observe, which made me chuckle for like two days. Always maximum drama! (He usually indicators notes, “The one that you love son, Tobias,” haha.)
Thanks, Folly Seashore, for an amazing journey! What did you do over the vacation? Do you have got any journey hopes/goals for this coming yr? xo
