April is the best month

I can hardly believe it, but last weekend was our first anniversary already. We spent a beautiful, leisurely weekend in Williamsburg, with perfect weather and no agenda except to see whatever we felt like seeing and eat at a tavern.


The colonial town had a special that turned our day passes into passes good through the end of the year, so we took our time and didn’t feel any pressure to see everything. We did tour the governor’s palace, the capitol building and the armory. We also ate at Chowning’s Tavern, and were serenaded by a guitar player while we ate.


The governor’s palace has an amazing English garden. I wish I had a picture, but I didn’t have my phone with me, and was too preoccupied with the abundance of tulips to borrow Bryant’s phone. But you understand when you see these, don’t you?


We ended the weekend with a long lunch on the patio of a cheese shop just outside the colonial town, with a cheese plate and some Virginia wine. It was perfect. You can picture us sitting out in the sunshine here.


It was a wonderful way to celebrate one year of marriage to the kindest, funniest and most charming of husbands. It’s hard to believe it was a whole year ago we were making silly faces in the Puerto Rican jungle to celebrate a few days of marriage. Well, he makes the faces and I laugh at them.
