Old Village Walking

Have you ever been somewhere and think, "I belong here."
That's how I feel about the Old Village neighborhood in Mt. Pleasant, SC . I know I've mentioned it before here, but I have to bring it up again.

The other day Scout and I detoured from our usual walk around our hood and drove over to the OV. Back in the day when Matt and I lived in sin and rented a house here I would take almost daily walks discovering new gardens and streets. Much like Downtown Charleston, they always led me to the Charleston Harbor.

The Skeeter loves her Car Rides

First stop was to Alhambra Hall, where we had our wedding reception. Here I can let Scout off leash and burn off some energy so she doesn't pull on the leash.

And we're off. I love this bakery. Every birthday I get the Hummingbird cake. Also, my mom surprised me with a cake from the Village Bakery at our wedding. A Slice of Chocolate Peanut Butter Heaven.

Pitt Street may look familiar. It was used many times in the Notebook.

I told you my brother looks like Ryan Gossling

Ahhhhh.... the Post House. Matt and I had brunch here the day we got engaged.

She makes friends everywhere she goes.

I'd take this house if you wanted to give it to me.

History lessons on every street.

I did some bench sitting

And harbor watching.

Pretty much the Perfect Neighborhood. Did I mention it has a library, shrimp docks, an awesome creek side watering hole and a pharmacy with a sit up bar.

Someday we will live here (owning a home). I just need a 400,000 more dollars.
