Welcome to my blog…I’ve never written a blog but here I go… one thing that I love to do is discover new places around our area and the cool part of living here during all this amazing growth is that really cool new places are opening all the time. So, here’s my little story of my beginning adventures in Summerville, SC.
I relocated to Summerville from Virginia Beach a little over 2 years ago and while this wasn’t my first move, it was still a major move and honestly, I felt like a fish out of water. I got lost every time I left the house for the first few weeks and initially, I really missed that comfort of knowing my community and the lay of the land. One thing that I noticed as I began to get settled and meet people was that in almost every conversation, as soon as someone found out that I was new in town, they wanted to give me suggestion on great places to eat or things for kids to do. There was an excitement in their voice as they would tell me where these places were located and their personal experience and why I just had to try it. I realized that there is something to be said for being in the know and there is a level of enthusiasm when you find a great new place and get the opportunity to share it with others.
As time went on and I stopped having to use my phone for directions every time I got into the car (seriously, I got lost ALL THE TIME!), I would take the advice of my new friends and I started to explore and even found some hidden gems on my own that I too get excitement to tell others about.
Just recently, my daughter who is obsessed with donuts…yes, donuts, and I decided that we are going to make it our mission to find the best donuts in our area…I will make sure to keep you posted on the many great place we discover along the way!
What are some places that you would recommend to someone new who just moved to our area?
What are some things that you are looking to discover? A really great pizza place, a new hairstylists, how about a good mechanic?
P.S. As I am typing up this blog, I just received a text from a good friend that says, “I found another fabulous lunch place. Are you up for lunch this week?” I’m looking forward to trying it out!!!!
