So we're back to the grind, but our get-away last week was exactly what we both needed. It wasn't very long away, but it was perfect.
We chose to go to Williamsburg because it's far enough away that we aren't living our every day lives (no work, no babies, no responsibilities, etc), but it's close enough that we didn't have to worry about traveling too far there or back.
Neither of us had stayed at the Historic Powhatan Resort so we weren't sure what to expect. But as we pulled into the gated community, this first picture was what welcomed us. It was so quiet and peaceful with a couple lakes with fountains. And this building though...I'm not sure why, but I love it. I loved driving into the resort and seeing it. There's another picture I took with the sunset behind it. Absolutely gorgeous.
We went without any plans. That was my one stipulation. We plan so much of our lives on a daily basis that I wanted the opportunity to not HAVE to do anything.
We spent the first evening out to dinner, then relaxing in the condo watching a movie. Oh, and the condo! It was absolutely gorgeous. A king sized bed in the bedroom, two full bathrooms, a full sized kitchen, and an upstairs loft/sitting area. We spent our last evening in the loft watching movies, snuggled up on the couch.
Somehow we came across a brochure for a ghost tour. Nick gave me crap for it at first (I love those kinds of things!), but then after some research, decided he wanted to go. So we spent our second night in downtown Williamsburg walking around, hoping to see some ghosts! We got some interesting pics (they're on Nick's phone), but we aren't 100% sure what, if anything, we saw.
Our last day was the most filled, but also the most relaxing and fun. We suffered through one of those timeshare presentations to get a free gift card (sometimes you make sacrifices for the gain, LOL). The gift card gave us two free meals, two free hour massages, a new journal for Nick, and other little odds and ends (Bangs and cookies, LOL).
We wanted to go on another ghost walk/tour in Yorktown that evening, but none were available. So we'll definitely have to go to that! Anyone want to join us?
As we checked out and headed back, we were both relaxed, but neither of us were ready to leave. We came back to a doctor's appointment for me. And now, today, a minor outpatient surgery.
So I may be out of pocket, once again, for today. But I'll be back at it tomorrow :)
I hope you all had a beautiful St. Patrick's Day...and I hope you have a beautiful week!
With love and wellness,
