Okay, we’ve found the way to ease the 30th birthday woes. 

According to Will, it’s basically eating our way into a coma on fried green tomatoes, she-crab soup, and fluffy coconut cake while listening to jazz music. 

We’re spending a long weekend in Charleston, South Carolina to celebrate being 30 together. 

Great food, great beaches, great plantations, great music. All happening exactly one month from today (which would be one week after my actual birthday, but who’s counting?). And, it’s a joint celebration of Will’s birthday, since he did have to spend his in College Station, which is no decent way for a man to live. 

So, who out there has been to Charleston, and what should be on a can’t-miss-it schedule for a quick weekend getaway?
