Williamsburg Holiday and 2015 Jump Start

Happy 2015! This morning's email notice about the renewal of my domain name prompted me to think about my blog. 2014 has been a fantastic and busy year and I'm looking forward to even better things in 2015. While I've been quite active on Instagram in 2014, one thing that I plan to realize this year is a return to regular blogging!

During the Christmas holiday, I visited one of my favorite places on earth, Williamsburg, Virginia. Although it is fabulous to explore any time of the year, the holiday season is particularly beautiful, with adorned with wreaths and garlands made with natural ingredients. I'm determined to make decorations like these for my home in December 2015.

Seasonably warm weather for some of the trip allowed me to leave my winter coat at the hotel! What a treat!

On other days, it seemed like we had the city to ourselves because of heavy rains. Luckily, my girls bring sunshine (and a big Lilly golf umbrella) with them wherever they go. By the way, I highly recommend the refillable mugs if you're going to Colonial Williamsburg. The refillable mug is a great deal at $13 and includes free refills during the entire year. The girls especially enjoyed the hot cider and hot chocolate.

Colonial Williamsburg always inspires me for design and decorating. The vivid paint colors, wall paper, wood moulding, and furniture is stunning and classic. Luckily for John, I'm happy with the interior paint in our home now or I might just opt for something like this green, found in the Governor's Palace.

Have a beautiful day and a fantastic start to the new year!


  1. Welcome back to blogging! I personally find it easiest to write when I want to write (or have something to write about of note), rather than my setting a quota for myself. I've always enjoyed your posts though, and am glad to see you back however often you decide to write!

    1. Thank you so much! I feel great to be writing blog posts! Have a wonderful day.
