Client Nosh…

One of the most fun parts of my day job is the work lunch!  It’s an opportunity to show appreciation for your clients, vendors and co-workers and not necessarily have to talk business.  There are so many places to go all over Charleston, in particular on the peninsula.  St. Alban on upper King Street is my latest find.

The handwritten menu is so charming!  Hard boiled egg sammy, please!

st alban sand

This is the best(and most creative) sandwich I have had in forever…hard boiled egg with arugula with pickled fennel.  No words!

St alban

Fun merchandise from St. Alban and other local artisans!  Counter order, self-serve drinks, totally hip barista on hand if you want a café au lait post nosh.  Most definitely worth a try-and is on my list going forward.  Happy Tuesday friends!

Think Pink…

Even though I don’t have a honey…I do have a Valentine’s Day wishlist!  Who doesn’t??!  Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love-no matter what form it comes in!  Love for your spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend, best-friend, children, grandparents, 4 legged friend-whoever.  There is never a reason NOT to dish out some good old fashioned sugar (as my sweet grandmother used to say).  So pucker up…

I know there are folks out there who get bogged down in the “Hallmark” aspect of Valentine’s Day…to me it is so much more, and so much more fun than just that!  Showing love and appreciation, especially to those who may not have so much in their lives NEVER goes out of style!

I plan on making the most of my Valentine’s Day!  I hope you do too!  XOXO,  Catherine
