#weekend10 - the 10th week

Wow! Ten weeks of #weekend10. Where does the time go? But this one... this one didn't disappoint. I had lifelong friends - Kelly and John - visiting me here in Charleston for the past week. These two have been friends of ours since I can remember. Seriously. It's a long time. I really can't remember them not being a part of my life. We have spent family trips together, summers floating in pools and eating grilled cheese sandwiches togehter, skiing together, sledding together in the ice cold weather, and the general misbehaving that children do together.  John was even my roommate in college for a short stint (Oh...those hazy days of college!).  Over more recent years, we have fallen in and out of touch, but we spent the past few days reconnecting and enjoying old stories with the backdrop of amazing food in a lovely city. There is far too much to post to cover all the details of the fun we had in just 10 little photos, but here's the overview with family, friends and fun for all:
