Connolly’s in Uptown Charlotte

"I stumbled upon Little Mustard Seed while browsing Instagram one day and I was blow away by the gorgeous prints, I knew I had to have one.  I have many special places that mean a lot to me but I knew the first one I wanted was Connolly’s in Uptown Charlotte.  Connolly’s means so much to me for so many reasons – which may seem weird since it’s a bar.  It was one of the first places I went to when moving to Charlotte and the patrons and staff were so laid back and pleasant, it became a regular spot for my girlfriends and I.  But the best thing about Connolly’s was because I met my now husband there.  We both frequented the Irish pub and it took us 5 years to actually run into each other there.  We met once in the summer, exchanged numbers, and parted ways.  Six months later we met there again, he took me out a few days later, and the rest is history.  We were obviously meant to meet there!  Since then we have celebrated milestone birthdays there and even our rehearsal dinner.  Aside from the personal reasons I love Connolly’s, in the modern and up and coming city that Charlotte is, it has one of the most beautiful and unique facades.  Being able to have Connolly’s captured in a personal piece of art will make for an awesome conversation piece and will warm my heart when I look at it."
