When your husband will not fly over seas with your five year old but you are obsessed with interesting travel, you start researching domestic trips like a mother fucker (and it’s usually over a glass of Rose.) I sorted through some good spots like Blackberry Farms (a fortune for a family of five), Dunton Springs (too out-doorsy for my littlest) and San Juan Islands (which sounds dope…still being considered!) But the destination that seems like a no-brainer for an early summer get-away is Charleston, SC. And while it seems like it has everything – culture, beauty and beach – I do admit that a huge draw is the Zero George hotel which basically hemorrhages charm. I imagine swinging on the front porch with the girls as the sun goes down and waving in the Southern beauty that I haven’t experienced since I was a kid. Maybe someone is climbing all over me, maybe someone isn’t, but at least I’m not trekking across Iceland while carrying a Kindergartner. Because if it’s up to me I’ll do that trek while carrying a first grader.
