A Day Trip With The Animals

Everybody loves a petting zoo. One of Stacey’s most favorite animals is the ring-tailed lemur, so when dear friends of ours told us of a place just 45 minutes outside of Charleston that has these precious little velvet-pawed babies, we knew it needed to be on our...
Picnics and Sunsets
