    Default i booked a trip to colonial williamsburg

    it's my favorite place, aside from london, which is out of financial reach. now i am committed to teaching summer school to pay for it. I am excited!

    you guys don't have to respond, just wanted to tell someone.

    I love Williamsburg. I'd go there yearly if the Curmudgeon would be willing.

    A few years ago I had the opportunity to listen to one of their tailors, he was wonderful to listen to. Future goals of people to chat up there are the weaver and a baker.

    i'm a nut. my home is even colonial williamsburg. i love this place and never tire of it. it's always fresh, and new.

    dining room = governors palace ballroom blue
    great room = everhard house yellow
    bathroom = tavern brown

    did you see the new green room in the governors palace? it's screaming green. so much for subdued colors.

    I LOVE Williamsburg ~ I live about 35 miles away and often wonder why I don't live there instead. Tons of stuff to do up there

    I'm persuadable for more frequency than at present. I'm never, ever, EVER doing a January trip there again, however.

    And NO TIME SHARES!

    I know - we stayed at the Lodge before when we were there one January.

    The time share comment was kind of an inside joke, sorry.

    I have always wanted to go there. I love visiting historic sites. You have to share your adventure with us when you get back.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH

    Will always be one of my favorite places. When we lived in NH, that was always our spring break destination. Twelve years ago DD and I flew to there for a long weekend to help celebrate my aunt and Uncle's 50th anniversary - so wonderfel!!....and quite an eyeopener to my Island girl!! Have a great time and please share all that you can with us upon return!!
