We kicked off Sunday by going to mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist…with the Bishop, no less! He was there celebrating the mass for the neophytes! We had many masses & beautiful Catholic churches to choose from. St. Mary's of the Annunciation was only a couple blocks away. Not Catholic? No problem- there were so many incredible churches throughout downtown. In fact, Charleston has also been dubbed the Holy City because of the sheer number of steeples that make in appearance in the skyline. After mass, we headed to brunch at the Early Bird Diner & consumed my favorite Charleston meal of the weekend! Thanks for the recommendation, Zito family! After stuffing ourselves with things like chicken & waffles and chocolate chip pecan pancakes, we met my brother at the Charleston Aquarium. We finished off the day by eating at Blossom, to celebrate Chris’ birthday and our anniversary. We spent the rest of the evening walking around, eating ice cream, and making friends with dogs. With one last walk along the Battery, we said goodbye to Charleston. Such a good trip & so much more to do! Guess we will be going back! My brother was such a great host & had such a nice place for us to stay. We loved spending our anniversary with him since he was deployed when we got married.

Happy Anniversary to us! Happy Birthday Chris!
And that’s a wrap! Go to Charleston! You’ll love it!!
