WHAT I LOVE ABOUT ME we asked 24 women ONE tough question and they wowed us with their 24 brilliant answers.

Graham L. Ervin Marketing and Events Supervisor The Reynolds Group

“I love that I wake up every day in a city by the water. I love that I can leg press more than most guys at the gym. I love that I do little unexpected things for others to brighten their day. I love that I was born with two dimples in my smile. I love that I create handmade cards and send them via snail mail. I love that I inspire others to become better versions of themselves. I love that I have a job that keeps me 'IN THE KNOW' and up on the latest trends. I love looking back on my Instagram profile (@grahamervin) to see all the beautiful people, places, things and moments I’ve captured through pictures.

“I love that water is my favorite thing to drink. I love that I can insert myself into most any song on the radio because it makes the listening experience so much more interesting. I love that somewhere in my attic I still have all of my Babysitter Club and Sweet Valley High books stashed away for my daughter to read one day. I love that I followed my instinct and painted my front door pink.

I love that I live in a city where really good french fries are in abundance.”

Chassity Evans, LookLingerLove.com

“I love digging my toes in the sand. I love that I love to travel and can speak a second language. I love that even when I am afraid, I still go on after my dreams. I love that I never lose my sense of wonder and always choose to keep a fire. I love that I'm a creator, a doer, a maker but most of all, a believer.” Jeanne Everett, Fashion & Product Stylist for skirt! Magazine

“I love that I am an optimistic soul. I love that I’ve learned you can’t bank time.

I love my sense of humor and that I can use the F word in almost every part of speech. I love knowing that the only way I can keep it is to give it away. I love that I have reinvented myself umpteen million times and I love that I finally got it right. I love being a mother. I love being an efficiency expert. I love that I get to come to a job that results in young people achieving their dreams. I love knowing how to simultaneously record all those Sunday night TV shows. I love that 58 is the new 38. I love that my yoga practice is my life practice. I love that I have learned to pause. I love keeping my side of the street clean. And I love love love that I’m not afraid to try.” Frances W. Bramlett Vice President, Donor Relations The Citadel Foundation

“I love that I get to use my body as a tool to express myself as work. I love that I have supportive parents, who have always been there for me.

I love animals, especially my own three. I love wine so much (sometimes too much). I love my positive outlook on life; it makes people and things more beautiful and enjoyable.” Crystal Wellman Professional dancer and yoga teacher at Charleston Power Yoga skirt!magazine septemberw2015

8/25/15 8:20:58 AM


“I love that spending the day at the beach in the sun and sand is my favorite kind of day.

I love that my job is never the same each day, always an exciting new adventure with my students every day. I love that my favorite place to travel is always home to Nashville, to visit my family and close friends. I love that my favorite hobby is reading any good book, particularly on a rainy afternoon. I love that I become more confident and open minded every year, and enjoy learning new things.” Megan Crouch

Math Teacher, Porter Gaud

“I love that I can feel like a million bucks wearing clothes I purchased at Goodwill.

I love that I know how to hold my own in difficult conversations. I love my green eyes, which everyone assumes are blue. I love that I walk around my downtown neighborhood often enough to notice when things change. I love changing my hair color when the seasons change.” Mallory Noelle Roberts 4th year medical student at MUSC

“I love that I am free spirited, spontaneous and will wake up on a Saturday morning and explore where the wind takes me. I love that I have an overflowing bookshelf with new stories and worlds to get lost in. I love that I feel strongest whenever I wear teal and that I have been lovingly nicknamed both "sunshine" and "terrible." I love that I'm 32 and still play kickball, that I secretly get misty eyed whenever I see a random act of kindness, and most of all, I love that I love to love.” Teresa Errico Freelance Writer and Editor

“I love that I wake up each day thankful for what I have learned along the way and for all the possibilities the day has in store for me.

I love knowing that time has taught me that if you give the world your very BEST, it has a way of flowing back to you in unexpected ways.

And I love that at the end of the day, I can sit on a porch swing, enjoying the sea breeze, the bird’s songs, my spoiled dogs, my trailblazing daughter and find great comfort in the fact that I get to help so many people celebrate life’s great moments!”

“I love that I get the opportunity to play soccer every day. I love that I can laugh at every one of my lame jokes. I love that I can bake all kinds of desserts for every kind of occasion. I love that I can walk around in shorts and a T-SHIRT every day and feel confident about myself and who I am.” Claire Newman, senior soccer player at College of Charleston

"I love going for a run along the streets of this Holy City, as the sun casts its morning light, revealing a beautiful history. I love the way movement frees my body and ignites my soul. I love bringing a smile to someone's face. I love stepping out of my comfort zone. I love meeting a stranger only to find out just how connected we are. I love how learning helps me grow and I love teaching others what I know. I love discovering my abilities extend much further beyond my perceived limitations. I love to love and be loved.” Jennie Brooks, Owner of Longevity Fitness Charleston

“I love that I've chosen to live and work alongside people who constantly make me laugh until I can't feel my face. I love that I'm not afraid to travel and explore new places alone. I love that Jeff Goldblum once gave me a bear hug and that there's photographic evidence of it. I love both getting gussied up and going makeup free, equally. I love that I still know how to cry when my heart feels broken, and that I'm not ashamed to dance it out when I'm overcome with joy.” Haley Shaw, Co-founder of The Royal Wild, songwriter,

“I love my job and making a difference through my passion for music. I love that I'm a risk taker and can trust that things will always work out. I love that I appreciate nature every day.

I love that I finally had the courage to cut my hair short (and it rocks).

I love to sit on a porch and enjoy a good conversation with the people I love.” Janice Crews Director of Education and Community Engagement Charleston Symphony Orchestra

Lisa Thomas, Owner Out of Hand & Ooh! Events

“I love my dog, it's simple but true, I love him, I love him, I love him! I love that on top of all of this I am still even more blessed to have the most amazing husband, best friend, partner and partner in crime. Life is perfect because we have each other.” Jennifer Sexton, Sales and Event Manager, The Carolina Girl

I love that I am 50 plus, fabulous and comfortable in my own skin. I love that I do not apologize for taking up space even when I am not invited. I love that I have failed many many times and plan to fail many more because that means I am still daring enough to try. I love that I run at least 100 miles a month. I love that I will almost sell my soul for a great cupcake with buttercream frosting. And most of all, I love the fact that I am an amazing sistergirlfriend. Doretha Walker, PhD Assistant Professor South University

“I love that as I age, I become more comfortable and confident with who I am. I love my silver white hair. I love that when I sit on my patio at dusk, deer bring their fawns to my yard. I love that I still love to learn and do new things.” Janet Nye Writer, Harlequin Superromance

“I love that I can be tender and tough. I love how much I love learning. I love that I love to share my secrets...you know the good stuff about life. Ask me, I'll tell you what's up, tech, spirituality, best place to get coffee. I love that I sing unabashedly in the car...and the shower... and anywhere else. I love my sense of humor, I can make me laugh like no one else. I love my blue eyes and that love got me through some really awkward adolescent years. I love that I am clumsy on a normal day, but put me in heels and I'm like a gazelle, weird but true. I love how hard I try to forgive myself and I love it when I succeed. And I secretly love that I flirt with myself in shop windows as I walk down the street on good hair days.” Laura Olsen Photographer and web designer

“I love that I experienced loss in my twenties. It helped me gain a clear perspective of why we should live every moment to its fullest and to have no regrets. I love that my daughter laughs like I do and we laugh a lot. I love that I'm 40 yet still feel 27, yet I did give all my fabulous high heels to my 20-something girlfriends. I love a glass of wine (or two) with my husband over any night on the town.” Ryan Nelson Owner, Nelwater Consulting

“I love the experiences that life has introduced me to. Through those I found out that I am stronger than ever and those challenges are often shared by others. As a result, I can not only offer sympathy but I am even more empathetic to mankind. I love that I am literally stopping and smelling the roses and that I am the only person that can truly determine my destiny. Most of all, what I love about me is the embracing of technology with my Macbook and social media, and impacting lives one post at a time!”

“I love how I can both begin and end a day in the orange glow of the sun.

I love that I choose to live where the smell of Tea Olive wafts through the air like a secret that only I know. I love knowing that my children are thankful I am their mother. I love my scars that remind me of falling down but getting up again. I love that I still have a long list of things to do, and see, and be.” Amy Perryman, SC Ports Authority

“I love being a morning person, although those closest to me may not share this affection. I love that I can eat brownie mix way more than advisable and not think twice about it the next day. I love no matter what happened in my day, when I go to the beach it's like hitting a reset button.I love being able to laugh until my cheeks hurt at my own terrible jokes. I love that beekeeping has taught me to always be in awe of the little things, even if they sometimes come with a sting.” Megan Swanson Content Editor at BoomtownROI

“I love that I can sit in a book store for hours and never want to leave.

I love that I get to sit and talk to a 95 year old and hear about what it was like to live in Charleston when they were a young adult. I love that I truly feel confident in who I am. I love I can sleep till 10 a.m. and not feel guilty about it. I love that when I really want to reach a goal, I persist until I've reached it. I love that my husband and I are raising such incredible young men. I love that my youngest son still lets me tuck him in at night. I love that contrary to popular opinion, I still sing in the shower, loudly.” Julie R. Rogers, M.D. Mt. Pleasant Eye Surgeons

“I love that I know every word to every song on the ‘Annie’ soundtrack. I love that my left hip has held three children (not at the same time). I love that I make going to the gym a priority. I love that I’m still close friends with the girls I met on the playground in elementary school. I love that I laugh, cry, and give hugs freely. I love that in spite of all the things to feel hopeless about, I’m hopeful.” Angie Mizzell, lifestyle blogger

Dr. Youlanda Gibbs, CEO and Founder of The Palmetto Palace
