Weekending in Kiawah Style

Ah, Kiawah.

I never get tired of going down to this island. It doesn't matter what time of year it is or what the weather is like outside. It's one of the best places to visit and it's always so hard to leave at the end of a trip.

Friday night, my parents, brother, Jen, and I all met up out on Johns Island at two of the best places: Low Tide Brewing for some drinks and The Southern General for supper. If you're ever on your way out to Kiawah from Charleston, these are two places you MUST stop by on your way. They're so good.

Saturday was all about three things: walking, biking, & beaching.

& of course, it wouldn't be a weekend at Kiawah without sunset drinks at the boardwalk one night.

How crazy is this sky? We watched one storm roll in and right past us... but totally got caught in the second one that came through.

Sunday morning, my mom and I bartered our skills with one another and helped each other out: I gave her a refresher course in using her camera before she & my dad jet off on their next big adventure and in return, she finally taught me how to make pimento cheese {just in time for football season!}

Stay tuned - this delicious pimento cheese recipe is coming to you later this week.

There was also a little bike riding around the island with my parents.

& more beach time!

But the best part of my weekend wasn't actually on Kiawah. It was coming back to our house and spending Sunday evening cooking dinner and watching some TV with my husband. This whole being married thing? Still awesome. We spent our longest amount of time together ever {20 days!} before having our first weekend apart.
Hope y'all are ready for some wedding posts! Wednesdays for the foreseeable future will be for all things wedding related. First up? Our invitations followed by my {slightly untraditional} bridal portraits. I cannot wait to begin sharing things about our day with y'all so I hope you're excited, too!

PS - it's the LAST week without college football! Hurry up, September!
