A Brief trip to Charleston,SC & Washington D.C

Worn by Rachel on December 12, 2009 - December 18, 2009

Before I sent Jaime My Sister's Shoes I took her to Charleston, SC with me and my husband. This is an annual trip that Shawn and I take before Christmas, for shopping at the Charleston markets. I knew Jaime and I would have fun together in Charleston with all it has to offer, now I had the chance to show her a few of it's historical sites, popular Rainbow Row, shop for a Sweet Grass Basket and of course, stop for a coffee and a fresh bakery cookie or croissant. Just a few days after our Charleston trip, Shawn and I headed north to visit his sister Ashley in Washington D.C. This would be the last trip with My Sister's Shoes before I sent them across the big pond to Germany, as a Merry Christmas present to Jaime. While in D.C., a snow storm hit us and 2' of snow covered everything creating quite a wintery scene for sipping hot coffee on the couch next to the window. Before leaving D.C and sending off My Sister's Shoes we made one last stop at a place Jaime would have gotten lost in and would have easily spent her whole day in. Although I like to think I'm a well organized person and have impressed others with my organizational skills I have nothing on Jaime, so  needless to say on a trip to The Container Store I wore My Sisters Shoes.

I wiped off the Shoes, packed them safely in a Shoe Box and set the pictures of our brief trips to Charleston, SC and Washington D.C on top. I put them in the care of USPS and waited anxiously for their arrival in Germany.

I can't wait to see where Jaime takes me!
