Last Thursday I didn’t post anything inspirational because right after work, David and I left town and went to Williamsburg for a nice long weekend!  Friends of ours, Mike and Julia, invited us to have a couples weekend getaway and it was seriously amazing.  Just the kind of TLC we needed.

While we were there, we couldn’t help but notice all of the amazing colonial architecture.  (BTW: visiting Williamsburg in the off-season is good in that you can see all the buildings without crowds in the way!  But we only saw two guys in tri-cornered hats.  Boo.)  In particular, I loved looking at beautiful front doors of houses!  Here are some of my favorites:

I love the use of glass around the doors.   I think it adds such a beautiful and welcoming touch.  Unfortunately those were the only two photos we retained (technical difficulty) but I got these online and think I remember seeing them:

Have you ever been to Williamsburg?  It was David’s first time and we really had an awesome weekend away from our house playing tourist.  I highly recommend going if you haven’t already!
