Taste of Charleston with Southern Living and Delta Faucet

Taste of Charleston 2013 was a wonderful success.  "Do what you love, love what you do!"  This weekend at Southern Living Taste of Charleston, I was reminded of loving what I do.  It was such an honor to team up with Taste of Charleston again.  My family and I were so delighted to join the festivities together and really capture the essence of the Taste of Charleston Weekend.

Thank you Southern Living for hosting me as a blogger for the event.  And Thank you Delta Faucet for inviting me to join the event as a Delta Blogger for Taste of Charleston.  I love sharing the Delta Faucet Touch 2O Technology.

Delta Faucet Touch 2O Technology

Delta Faucet was one of the first brands that I worked with as a Blogger years ago.  I was hired to post about Delta Faucet products for a corporation.  I was so thrilled for the work and fell further in love with the products.  So I felt pretty full circle getting to work together this weekend with two of my favorite brands, Delta Faucet and Southern Living in Charleston, a city we love with my family.

So Friday evening, we spent the evening at the Taste: Sweet and Southern Shem Creek Event.  This night was spectacular.  We were overlooking historic Shem Creek on a perfect evening.  We rode a boat to look at the Islands at Sunset.  It was a magical evening.

"Delta Touch2O® Technology makes everyday kitchen tasks easier and keeps your faucet cleaner. Turn the water on or off with a simple touch anywhere on the spout or handle. It's available in a wide range of styles and finishes for your kitchen, including bar and prep faucets."

Stay tuned for a Delta Faucet Touch 2O Technology Faucet GIVEAWAY soon!! 

Our boys LOVED the ease and variety of the Touch 2O Technology.

We had a spectacular weekend for the festivities.  We arrived in Charleston to a beautiful sunshiny day with a little Fall breeze in the air.  After lunch on the water, we check into the Fulton Lane Inn on King Street, Charleston.  We loved staying downtown and enjoyed this Charming Inn.   They served us Breakfast each morning, room service.  This Mom was smitten.

We met Southern Living's Team, Chef Norman King and the Delta Bloggers at
Circa 1886 for an elegant dinner and planning for the Taste of Charleston Event on Sunday.
Heidi and I loved the locale, the cuisine and the ambiance.

We had so much fun at the Shem Creek Sweet and Southern Tasting.  The Sunset and the
boat rides were our favorites.

 We captured this Roof Top photo at the Sweet and Southern Tasting Friday night at the Cottages by the Creek on Historic Shem Creek.  Such a fun and tasty party.

Our boys LOVED the sessions and here, they were intrigued with Norman's Cooking.  Too fun! 

 The Kids Zone is so fun at the Taste of Charleston.  We loved all of the fun.  They had LOTS of activities and crafts for children.  And there were Kid Friendly Snacks! :)

As always, it was hard to say good bye to the Taste of Charleston and the Holy City itself.  We have so many fabulous memories there.  We'll be back before we know it.  Thanks Charleston for your hospitality.
