If you’ve been following along via the TMI Blog Instagram, you know that Mama Kim is coming in from Charleston for a wedding and staying with us– which means we finally will get to show our second bedroom some love!

With our trip booked to visit my parents and having been to Charleston, South Carolina a handful of times myself, I thought of no better way to celebrate my excitement than to put together the ultimate guide to The Holy City– with help from the new Charlestonians themselves– view the best-in-class to-do’s, restaurants (of course), cocktail bars, rooftops, cafes, and dessert places– some new and some hidden gems.

Her passion for children is like nothing I’ve ever seen and has turned her love for us and others into a fulfilling career as a Swim Instructor.
