Sweet Southern Fun

My visit home to South Carolina started with a bang….or maybe I should say…a baby!  My mom picked me up in Charleston where we stayed for 2 nights with Brad, Suzanne and Augusta Clare.  My mom and I were on babysitting duty so we had fun playing with AC, giving her baths, and all of the other fun stuff that you do with babies.  I love being an aunt!!

Do I look awkward holding a baby?

Splish Splash I was takin a bath

Then my mom and I went back home to Columbia and the headed off to an event hosted at the home of the President of the University of South Carolina in honor of U.S. Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Stephen Breyer who were visiting the state for the SC bar convention meeting.

Not only is Michael generally a fan of Justice Scalia, but Scalia actually also started his legal career working as an attorney for Jones Day, SO Michael sent me on a mission to meet him and get a photo at the event.

With my parents meeting Justice Scalia!!

Mission Accomplished.

Finally, I was able to snag a night out in Newberry with my grandparents and my Aunt Sheryl.  We went to Delamaters for dinner, one of my old favorite restaurants, and enjoyed amazing She Crab Soup, Shrimp & Grits, and family time.  🙂

I miss you all already but am so glad we got one final trip in!  🙂  xoxox

  1. Ash, how cool to have met Justice Scalia! One of the truly great legal minds of our time. I love listening to him speak. Your visit home appeared to have been super fun, and how sweet is that little AC? Your family is blessed, be thankful. Looking forward to reading about your adventures in Brazil. Who knows if I will not being seeing you down there soon. As you might already know, I’m from Salvador, BA a city in the northeast of Brazil, and the place where many refer to as the “heart & soul” of Brazil. I don’t usually swing south to SP for many reasons, as u will lean after living in Brazil for a while, but I may b headed in that direction in the near future. I’ll keep you posted.

  2. Loved the blog and we loved being with you while you were here. Justice Scalia is a GREAT jurist and we need more like him! love, Nan and Papa
