We spent the weekend in Greenville, SC for a family birthday celebration. We find ourselves in Greenville fairly frequently (a few times a year) and it is one of my favorite small cities to visit. If you have never been there, there is a surprising amount of things to do, especially for families, and the downtown is simply lovely.
Downtown Greenville has undeniable charm. The streets are tree-lined, and a variety of delicious restaurants and local shops are at every step of the sidewalk. This photo really doesn't do it justice, it is so pretty, but I was just snapping a photo with my phone as we were walking to dinner.
I was out enjoying the fact that the weather was at least 15 degrees lower than I had been experiencing at home in FL, and I happened upon this house. I instantly decided it is my absolute favorite in town. I just love the color combination; greige body color, black shutters, off white trim and a fantastic pale blue door. So pretty! The door just makes the whole house.
Just stopping to appreciate this huge and beautiful flower on my run. Maybe I was just looking for an excuse to stop running for a minute. This Florida girl is not used to running on hills! Yeesh - it felt like I ran twice as far.
For me, a trip to Greenville always requires a few needed stops. My favorite local clothing boutique.
A visit to the Children's Museum of the Upstate is a must for the kids. They love it!
I found these fun jewel stud earrings at one of my other absolute must stops, Handpicked. This little jewelry store never disappoints.
And last, but not least, a little dose of love for my paper fixation. These are from the adorable Swoozies. I am amazed that the four walls can contain all the cuteness in this store.
We had a great time visiting family, playing, exploring, and of course, a little shopping! Hope your weekend was great.
