Charleston, SC

Golly it takes me a long time to get ready in the morning. I think this is the definitive sign I've become a woman. But hey, I am on my debut tour to meet John's friends, so I'm trying to be extra conscious of making a good first impression.

I've been looking for a place to call home my entire adult life. Everywhere I go I think about whether or not I would want to live there. Australia, Milwaukee, and sometimes Chicago are the only places that have really gotten to me so far. So, after all my looking, it's interesting to be in the other shoes. John wants to live in Charleston, and that is on our minds while we are visiting here. Will I like it enough to move?

I think we both agree that with the way his work is, we won't be here in the next two years. For that, we need to be close to LA and Vegas. But he loves it so much that it is a solid possibility that sometime in our lives we'll be moving to Charleston.

My first impression, is that it is steeped with history. And even though all the gentrified upscale shops are taking over downtown and creating quite the retreat for tourists, you can still feel history here like no other place I've ever been to in the West or Midwest. My dad would like it here, I think, as long as he could cable in his sports.

The buildings are gorgeous, most were built a few hundred years ago. With this, there's a feeling of slight discomfort for being an outsider. I have little family history that's relative to this part of the country, and that could get uncomfortable if living here permanently. But it's too soon to tell.

Words I need to figure out since getting here:

lowcountry
pimento
toque

More later.

Current:
