The minute I turned into the tree-filled circular driveway of the Swamp Rabbit Inn in Travelers Rest, I couldn’t help but sigh in relief.

We want to bring you the things that we are truly obsessed with. These things could be from anywhere. Is there a product we love? We’ll tell you about it. Is there a book that is a true page-turner? You’ll hear about it here. Think of it like Oprah’s favorite things, but on a smaller scale…and from people who are much more relatable. Every other week we’ll be bringing you two to three of a new tribe member’s favorite things for that week. Who knows? You might find your new favorite thing too!
