Our oldest child left for college this fall. I really can't believe that we finally reached this point in our family. It is one of the saddest things we have experienced. She is happy, though and in a wonderful place, which makes it a little more bearable for us. The only good thing about her being so far away is a little boutique hotel just a few minutes walk from her dorm. It is called... The Carolina Inn. I put it in bold and italics, because it deserves it! Oh my goodness! And when you say it, it must be with a southern drawl. (You might as well read the rest of the post that way.) It is perfection. I love everything about it. The rooms are just beautiful-- the bedding is luxurious and the bathrooms make me want to redo mine! The restaurant is divine--especially the fried oysters; Everyone there makes you feel like they might have known your grandmother. But, the best thing of all, Maggie is only two minutes away. I already have my reservation for this May when we pack her up and bring her home for the summer!!
