A Quick Photo Diary From My Recent Trip to Colonial Williamsburg

Just sharing a few photos I took two weeks ago from a trip to one of my favorite places, Colonial Williamsburg. No matter how many times I visit, I’m endlessly inspired by the gardens, the colors, the furniture details, and the commitment to preserving the town as it would have been. The foxglove, the snapdragons, and the poppies were putting on their most vibrant spring show, and we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful 75-degree May day.

This time, Adam and I visited with his parents who were in from Austin. They’d never been to this part of the country, and his dad was eager to explore the history of Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown. While you can spend an entire day wandering around without buying tickets, we wanted to get the full experience of popping in all the shops, makers, and historic buildings, so Adam and I went ahead and went for the annual passes. They pay for themselves in two visits, and I’m excited to come back and check out the Decorative Arts Museum, which I ran out of time to visit last year when I was in town last spring for the Benjamin Moore event — and the same thing happened this year.

So we’ll be back sooner rather than later, and if anyone wants to accompany me on a trip to Williamsburg this year, I’m in.
