{p,f,h,r}–Pretty, Funny, Happy, Real

~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~

Every Thursday, at Like Mother, Like Daughter!

I’ve never done this before, because I normally don’t take enough pictures every week to do this weekly. But I sure did when I was on vacation, so here we go!


There’s a lot of pretty here, guys. Edel+ Charleston= pretty overload. So let me walk you thought it.


Carolina Jam Cake with lovely, simple flowers at Hominy Grill. The cake has caramel icing. Say no more, people.


This lovely St. Therese necklace made by the Fantastic (And Cincinnati-based!) On This Day Designs.


Goodies from the conference: St. Thomas card (also from On This Day), a St. Catherine of Siena medal, and a lovely print from Hatch Prints.  Dominican power was strong!


The cutest houses–and wonderful restaurants!


Seriously, a hat shop! A REAL HAT SHOP! With such a pretty sign.



Super funny ladies, they are: Kelly Mantoan and Mary Lenaburg.

IMG_2225It’s so perfectly their faces from the animation. I just love it. Also notice how Drizella is green. 🙂
