On Sunday, months of hard work paid off with one of my favorite events of the year: the Spoleto Finale at Middleton Place. We loaded up the car with too many people, too much food, and a handle of whiskey and spent the afternoon under the oaks and touring the plantation's extensive grounds. Best of all, we had a private tour guide in a friend's history-buff husband who used to work at the plantation. The night ended with a bluegrass concert from Del McCoury followed by fireworks. With the festival behind us, the finale signals the true beginning of summer, my favorite time of year.
