I’m back from my week studying and writing in Williamsburg, VA. It’s so good to be home and to see my family again! I missed them. (And yes, I’ve already swept and mopped my floors this morning.)
This morning, however, I wish I could still head to my quirky Williamsburg coffee shop. Aromas sits just on the edge of the historic colonial site and the college of William & Mary - and I spent some time there last week. I took a few photos for you.
Just outside cute cafe tables sit under an awning on a tree-lined street. I’d read here in the early morning or late afternoon, when the sun wasn’t too strong.
There’s an ice cream shop next door and a darling florist shop around the corner. Flags and geraniums are everywhere here by the way.
OK, so let’s head inside and order a decaf latte and a biscotti (they have the best biscotti) …
That’s the owner to your right with the blonde hair and pink folder.
Now let’s choose a place to sit ….
Look closely at the table to the left of the door and you’ll see my laptop sitting there.
They always have snappy music playing in this shop. Plus, downtown Williamsburg has free wi-fi.
See the guy in white across from my table? He laughed at me when Billie Jean came on and I couldn’t stop bopping my head to the beat – too much caffeine I think.
OK, so let’s go doctor up our coffee with some sweetner – and you’ll discover that Aroma’s has a sense of humor. Here’s the condiments station:
It’s a very good thing my children aren’t with me. I’d hate to leave them to use the restroom and come back to find I’m now in charge of a Dalmatian puppy too! Yep, I’m gonna miss this place.
Thankful for the opportunity to spend a week’s retreat with God
