Happy Thanksgiving!

November 19th, 2022 | By Charleston Fine Homes

My grandmother used to tell me a story about a little girl and boy that ate too many berries, fell asleep in the after eating turkey...and then couldn't find their way home in the dark. It wasn't meant to scare me or get me to eat less. She just wanted to entertain me as my eyes closed to take a nap.

As you may have figured out if you regularly read these blogs, one of us is the writer. Guilty as charged. It’s me, Franne. I have always loved to write.
