We can’t believe that it’s already July. We’ve already celebrated during the Independence Day madness, and now it’s just time to enjoy the rest of our summer. A small part of us just wants to relax and sit poolside for the rest of these dog days. But living in Charleston, we know that there’s always an event coming up that we can’t miss out on. We’ve got everything you need from yoga on Folly to Follow Friday at The Alley.
