the backdrop to our story.

There's a tiny island called Daniel Island that is a part of Charleston that serves as the backdrop to Guy's and my love story. I moved to Daniel Island post college; I had ended my relationship with my first love, didn't have a clear career path, and was enamored with the idea of living at the beach. Charleston (and Daniel Island), seemed like the perfect choice.
Guy came to Charleston to attend College of Charleston and post college moved to Daniel Island as it was close to his job. Little did we know we were living on the same street, mere doors from one another.

Fast forward two years where Guy and I are working at the same company and I join his team. We're immediately smitten with one another, both end the relationships we were in, and the rest is history.

I tell you this because it explains just how big this house purchase is for us. I've lived off Daniel Island for the past 6 years; Guy for 3. We always knew we wanted to get back. Purchasing this house isn't just a house purchase. It's getting back to where we fell in love. Where we work. Where we love to be. It's even the backdrop for our engagement.
These keys symbolize a continuation of our love, our story, and our future.
I couldn't be happier.
Thank you for all your love and support! Pictures to come!
xoxo

I love DI. We lived there from December, 2002 until July, 2011 and have so many good memories there. I also have a group of 5 close girlfriends and we all have 2 boys the same age. It's a really wonderful place to start your future together. Congrats again on the house. That's so exciting!

Looks gorgeous! congrats! Wish we could buy a real house but we have to get rid of the two condos we both bought before we were married. ARGH! This economy sucks!

hey girl, just sent you an email with fabric info but it came back as a bad address.

anyway, here it is:

the ikat fabric is from Williams & Sherrill here in Richmond. the saleslady wrote down the information for me in case I needed to reorder but when I googled it I could never find an online source. Anyway, it's home accent fabric in himalay fog. It's book number 22904 run number 7.

I hope that helps
