It seems there’s a day for everything, and Thursday, August 15th just happens to be a favorite… National Relaxation Day! Can we all take a collective deep breath and say ahhh?

Cast all your iGadgets, droids, emails and social media aside. Relax, if only for a few minutes, and daydream with me. This wish list of distinctly Southern places has me going and planning, if only in my mind. Here’s what I would do and I’d love to know what you would do…


* Hit the water and go Yoloboarding in the beautiful coastal dune lakes at

* Go for a leisurely bike ride along the famed Sea Island drive and take in the beauty, history and architecture

* Head to The Old Edwards Inn for the spa retreat

* Get my yoga on at The Greenbrier yoga retreat

* Enjoy a trail ride at the Palmetto Bluff Stables

* Take a hands-on cooking class at The Mansion on Forsyth Park

* Catch Emmylou Harris and Friends in concert at
