About the Shady Umbrella


Hello and Welcome to The Shady Umbrella! My name is Kristin. I am from Charleston, SC. I love living in the Lowcountry with my husband, Jason, and we have a new little traveler, Sutton. I really enjoy seeing new places whether in my home state of South Carolina or around the world. I wanted to find a way to share my experiences and passion for travel.

The Shady Umbrella began as a simple list of interests that was written down one afternoon. Oddly enough, all of my interests involved seeing new places, trying new foods, shopping, and relaxing…shocker. Luckily I had some friends that helped me get my foot in the door, and then it all just fell into place. The Shady Umbrella was born!

My goal is to help you find your place in the shade, and create memories through amazing travel experiences.

Happy Travels,
