Dive Bars + Shrimp  I am not a dive bar kind of gal. After over 40 years on this planet, this is one thing I know about myself. If I’m going to go out for a drink, I want to look at a gorgeous view...

A Very Barry Issue Last month, I received a letter (it was an email, but I’m old-fashioned so I’m going to call it a letter) from a fan in Bluffton. She’s a fan of CH2/CB2 magazine and more...

Arts + Music Last October, we put out our first Arts + Music issue, and it was such a big hit that we decided to keep it running—perhaps in perpetuity, like the Pet issue every February. Since last...

Hunter and I ran into Lori Smith, a former CH2 Bachelorette nominee, at Target last week. After some quick chit-chat, our conversation turned to how liberated we all felt walking into Target without masks. I commented that perhaps tough things needed to happen every now and again to make everyone appreciate how fortunate we really are.

I remember listening to my Grandpa Ross sing Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” at the Ross Madison House (a restaurant he owned with my grandma) in upstate New York when I was just a child. It’s strange that this particular memory is burned into my brain.

I saw fireflies blinking for the first time from my back deck a few days ago. It made me wonder if they had always been there. Was I too busy to notice? Or was the lack of cars on the road at night contributing to less light pollution? This is noteworthy to me because that’s one thing I have really missed seeing since we moved to South Carolina 30 years ago. I used to see them all the time in Upstate New York.

In late September of last year, local stylist Danielle Galella sent me a text message asking if Lucy could be a dog model for HGTV. We were headed out of town for a fashion shoot in Greenville on the date they were shooting, so unfortunately, I had to tell them she couldn’t swing it. Danielle got back to me again and said they would adjust their schedule; they really wanted a Bernese Mountain Dog for the shoot. At this point, I knew no details, and I guess I just assumed it was some sort of real estate-based show, since I knew local realtor Brad Wilson had been involved in a few of such episodes for “Island Life.”
